Nothing is official in NFL Free Agency 2015 until it’s truly official on Tuesday, but several signings have already been reported and many more are following soon.
Be Seen, Be Heard, Be a Fan!
Which teams will make the biggest splash in free agency? Which players are worth the risk and who’s bound to disappoint?
Weigh in on the best, worst, and the impact on all of the upcoming signings with @FanRagSports and @TodaysPigskin.
Dolphins Dish Out Cash for DT
Ndamukong Suh reportedly turned down a $17M per year deal from his former team that included $58M in guaranteed money and instead decided to take his talents to the Miami Dolphins on a six-year $114M contract. Suh instantly becomes one of the NFL’s highest-paid players as the deal will average $19M per season.

Aaron Rodgers and other NFC North quarterbacks can breathe a sigh of relief as Suh will now target Tom Brady and AFC East signal callers twice per season.
Are the Miami Dolphins instant contenders in the AFC? Will the teams that missed out on Suh target other defensive studs now?
Gore Replaces McCoy as Top Eagles RB
Frank Gore is leaving San Francisco for the high-flying offense of Chip Kelly and the Eagles. The ten-year veteran, workhorse runner will reportedly sign a deal that includes $7.5M in guaranteed money over the first two seasons.
Philadelphia traded away star RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills earlier in the week freeing up a large amount of cap room for the organization to address other areas of need.
Wow Frank Gore leaving our division. Always had a great deal of respect for his game. Brings it every carry. Doesn't say much just plays.

The Eagles are closing in on a contract with free agent cornerback Byron Maxwell as well. The former-Seahawk is an instant upgrade for the Philly secondary.
Maclin Reuniting with Andy Reid, Headed Home to Chiefs
Jeremy Maclin played for the Mizzou Tigers before strapping it up for Andy Reid and the Eagles. When free agency opens Tuesday, he’ll be the newest member for a Chiefs WR corps that failed to nab a receiving TD last year.
Maclin enjoyed a career-best season in 2014 with 85 receptions for 1318 yards and 10 scores.
Reuniting with Andy Reid…

The Chiefs will have to clear some cap space for Maclin, whose deal is believed to be along the lines of the one Randall Cobb struck with the Packers.
