NFL Nuggets:

  • Free agency negotiations opened at noon ET today.
    • Already known: (up to 5:15PM ET)
      • The Raiders will sign Trent Brown away from the Patriots for 4 years/$66 million.

      • Nick Foles is expected to sign a four-year, $88 million deal with the Jags.
        • Worth up to $102 million with incentives.
        • Just before the signing on Wednesday, the Jags will release Blake Bortles.
        • Ape has the appropriate take on this:

  • Nothing can become official until the new league year starts at 4:00PM ET on Wednesday.
  • Danny Amendola is now a Lion.
    • Miami cut him Friday, which allowed him to sign before the new league year starts.
    • He rejoins former Patriots coach Matt Patricia as a “locker room” guy.
  • Tampa is trading DeSean Jackson to the Eagles.
    • Ape is two-for-two, having the right take on this as well:
