It has been a busy week in the NFL as teams are busy acquiring free agents, and others are scrambling to retain top talent. Let's take a look at some goings on in the AFC.

Cleveland Browns

Johnny Manziel's days as a Cleveland Brown are over. After using a first-round pick on the beleaguered quarterback and suffering through two disappointing seasons marked by poor performance and off-field distractions, the Browns decided to part ways with Manziel, adding yet another name to their very length Quarterbacks Who Didn't Work Out list.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals have a ton of free agents they are scrambling to retain. With no way of signing all 14 unrestricted free agents, the Bengals are prepared for a mass exodus of sorts. While the team signed safety George Iloka, they lost safety Reggie Nelson. Wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu have also both left the team.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens had a horrible 2015 and find themselves in need of depth at virtually every position. The team found out Friday that they will have three compensatory picks. They were also able to sign tight end Benjamin Watson in a two-year $7 million deal.

Denver Broncos

Quarterback Brock Osweiler, who filled in for the injured Peyton Manning during much of the 2015 season, has left the Denver Broncos and has been picked up by the Houston Texans. Meanwhile, the Broncos have acquired Mark Sanches from the Philadelphia Eagles, a perplexing move considering Sanchez is not a stellar quarterback. The Broncos have proven that they can win a Super Bowl without a strong quarterback at the helm, so this move definitely points towards their continued confidence in their phenomenal defense.

New York Jets

The New York Jets have visited with Steelers offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum.There are also rumors that the team is interested in visiting with Robert Griffin III, who was recently released by the Washington Redskins after years of drama, disappointment, and confusion.
