NFL free agency began on Tuesday at 4 PM ET. Please use this thread to discuss the latest signings, rumors, and general speculations about NFL goings-on. We'll be updating this thread when signings are reported.
5:15 PM ET
WR Josh Morgan signed by Washington Redskins
5:30 PM ET
Redskins re-signed DL Adam Carriker. Details per Jason LaCanfora: four years, $20 million, with $7 million guaranteed.
6:15 PM ET
Seattle re-ups DL Red Bryant. Details per Adam Schefter: five years, $35 million, with $14.5 million guaranteed.
8:20 PM ET
QB Jason Campbell signs a one-year deal with the Bears.
The Buccaneers signed WR Vincent Jackson to a five-year deal worth $55,555,555.
9:30 PM ET
The Rams signed CB Cortland Finnegan. Reports have the deal at five years, $50 million.
10:05 PM ET
The Colts re-signed WR Reggie Wayne to a three-year deal. To quote Jim Irsay's twitter feed, "REGGIE! REGGIE! REGGIE!!!!!!!"
The 49ers re-signed CB Carlos Rogers. Reports are it's a four-year deal, $31 million.
The Jaguars re-signed S Dwight Lowery, who was a big part of their improved defense last year.
The Jaguars re-signed DE Jeremy Mincey to a four-year deal. Frankly, I'm surprised he signed before Mario Williams, as I thought he was a relatively attractive Plan B for teams that missed out.
Earlier tonight, the Falcons re-signed QB Chris Redman to a one-year deal (blah) and WR Harry Douglas to a four-year deal. I thought Douglas was a very good slot receiver who didn't get utilized enough last year. It'll be interesting to see how much work he gets, in terms of both snaps and targets, going forward.
The Chargers signed WR Robert Meachem to a four-year deal. They still need a left tackle after Jared Gaither hit free agency and Marcus McNeill was cut.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
