Free Agency Open Thread

Joe Sargent

We're here late, talking all things free agency after what had to be one of the most active free agency days in league history.

The NFL was like the trading floor at the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday at the start of free agency.

Deals flying everywhere, and most of them involving the Miami Dolphins.

Miami bought what seemed like half the free agents on the market, including what was apparently the top prize, former Steelers WR Mike Wallace.

They also took Dannell Ellerbe off the Ravens hands, and signed one of the more underrated players in the game, Phillip Wheeler, off Oakland.

The question of building something of a team through free agency has never been answered positively in the NFL, but Miami seems content to give the theory another shot.

As for the Steelers, it had to be the most active transaction day in team history. Larry Foote joined Ramon Foster as new contract holders, and word is Plaxico Burress will be coming back.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert isn't married to any of these players, but he sure seems to want to keep the ol' roster together after the 8-8 season they just had.

Just sayin'.

What else was interesting to you on what could be the most active day in free agency history?
