8:18 a.m.: One of the most surprising moves Tuesday was the Green Bay Packers’ decision to release Jordy Nelson. Despite his age (he’ll be 33 to start the season) and injury history (most notably a torn ACL a few years ago), Nelson figures to have a decent market.
8:12 a.m.: The Browns are on a mission … whether it works out remains to be seen, of course, but Cleveland remains busy.
8:02 a.m.: Tuesday was a busy day for the Patriots, who saw Dion Lewis, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Butler all reportedly agree to deals with new teams. And there’s already some interesting news about the Patriots on Wednesday.
8 a.m.: As a blizzard hit parts of the East Coast on Tuesday, there was a flurry of activity across the NFL.
Free agency doesn’t officially begin until Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET, but with the legal tampering period underway, there was no shortage of reported deals throughout the day Tuesday.
