2019 NFL Free Agency Update: OBJ to the Browns, Le’Veon to the Jets, and Many More Trades and Signings

OBJ & AB looking like free agents

At exactly 4:00 p.m. ET today, the 2019 NFL Free Agency period will be officially underway.

And because NFL rules allowed players to begin contract negotiations with teams on Monday, several of the league’s best players have already made their intentions known by either signing new lucrative multi-million, multi-year contract as an unrestricted free agent or by being traded to a new team, so the current team could get picks or players in return.

The vast majority of players below will have new homes before the 2019 NFL season kicks off.

Star players such as Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. have officially been traded, and everyone should be thankful that we don’t have to go another season wondering whether Le’Veon Bell will play or not.

With many teams looking to make a 2019 Super Bowl appearance, here are the biggest trades so far this offseason and a list of the top signings from the free agent period.
