Before the 2024 NFL free agency period officially kicked off, teams were busy making moves at the start of the legal tampering period. The Pittsburgh Steelers were quiet when the chaos first ensued, but hours before the free agency, the front office was busy agreeing to a contract for quarterback Russell Wilson.

There has been a non-stop flow of roster moves around the league that will continue until the talent pool dies down. Some teams are staying patient while others are throwing millions at the best free agents on the market.
