It didn't take long for some of the biggest names in NFL free agency to come off the board.

By the time the new league year began, Kirk Cousins (Atlanta Falcons), Sauqon Barkley (Philadelphia Eagles), Derrick Henry (Baltimore Ravens), Austin Ekeler (Washington Commanders), Josh Jacobs (Green Bay Packers), D'Andre Swift (Chicago Bears) and Tony Pollard (Tennessee Titans) had already found new homes.

On the defensive side of the ball, Christian Wilkins (Las Vegas Raiders), Danielle Hunter (Houston Texans), Leonard Williams (Seattle Seahawks), Bryce Huff (Eagles), Patrick Queen (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Xavier McKinney (Packers) were scooped up quickly as well.

And since free agency officially opened, Calvin Ridley (Titans), Arik Armstead (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Chase Young (New Orleans Saints) headlined the players who secured deals.
