Just over a week until the FA wire opens and players such as Redskins QB Kirk Cousins, Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul, Chargers LB Melvin Ingram and Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell have been slapped with the franchise tag.

Perhaps the most interesting question will be the landing point of Cowboys QB Tony Romo, who looks likely to be released rather than traded. He'd like to play for Denver or Houston with their elite defenses and a chance to win a ring, but both of those sides may find it difficult to afford his salary demands.

Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo is on the trade block and could fetch them a first round pick from the Bears, Browns or 49ers.

Who would you like your team to sign?

Personally, I'd like to see the Broncos bring in a couple of offensive linemen and perhaps Dont'a Hightower. We have $42m cap room but I'd rather see us build an elite roster around Paxton Lynch than splash out on Romo and get him killed behind a porous OL.

Bills sign two full-backs in Murray and Tolbert, plus restructured at QB with Taylor. The wide receivers look really really thin though

Pats trade for Dwayne Allen and sign Stephon Gilmore.

Mike Glennon gets paid like a stud.

DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans are gunna team up.

Free Agency is fun!!

Brock Osweiler becomes the first ever player to be traded for a negative return. Texans trade Osweiler and a 2nd and 6th round pick in 2018 to the Browns for a 4th rounder. Whoa.

Pats land Stephon Gilmore and are trading Malcolm Butler to the Saints for Brandon Cooks.

Pretty happy to keep Perry, the guy was the best pass rusher left on the market and had a sneaky good season this year. But landing Martellus Bennett just wow. I was starting to get annoyed we weren't bringing Cook back, but Bennett is an upgrade!

Wondering now if we will decide to use the rest of the money to rework Rodgers' deal.

Happy with the haul so far...

Ryan the biggest "name".

But as they say, you don't win Super Bowls in FA.

Addressed needs well and get solid players across the board. With space to extend MM8, Lewan and Conklin down the line.

Hightower would be the icing on top. But I expect any minute now to announce he's re-signed with the Pats.

Not too fussed missed out on Cooks. Sounded like #18 straight up which was too steep.
