Does this mean deals start to be announced in two hours or does that happen on Wednesday?

You'll start hear today I think:

Many negotiations have quietly started and quite a few deals are already sealed, so expect many deals to be announced soon after the legal tampering period begins.

They picked the right day (Monday after Spring Forward) to do it, since I’m not getting much work done anyways.

I like Gesicki as a receiving TE, but Henry can't block so he wouldn't be a fit. I'd grab two guys in the draft, they need to get ahead of Henry potentially leaving next off-season as well.

Would not be that surprised if Henry isn't here next year. He's owed $15.5M, but cutting or trading him leaves only $5M of that as a cap hit. Depending what they see in the draft/FA he might well be gone.

Nothing official yet, but I saw a tweet that the Seahawks are releasing Shelby Harris for additional cap room, about $9 million.

looks like the Bears will also sign McGlinchey. One of the better tackle options off the board.

What would be a reasonable price for Jeudy, a 3-4th rounder?
I would think more. An acquiring team would basically have him on a 2/$15.6m contract & he put up 67/972/6 last season, and will be 24 this season.

I was thinking a 2nd and late round pick next year probably would get it done

Well the Patriots have had success at least twice before when dedicating a 2nd and a 7th on WR(s) in the same year.
(Welker trade in 2007; Branch and Givens drafted in 2002).

Are the broncos tearing it all down? Seems like if they're committed to making the Wilson era a success they should be buyers on the receiving side, not sellers.

I would trade 46 for Jeudy in a heartbeat. Would solve a major issue for this team. Might even be able to move down in 1st and recoup some or all of that value.

Too much money invested.
Basically, Sutton got paid and hurt, he's been unhappy with his usage since he came back.
Hamler cost a 2nd, has been underused and injured, but shown some explosiveness
Jeudy has been their best WR, but he was drafted in the 1st and hasn't produced like a #1.
Tim Patrick is also there, and his deal makes him impossible to move this year for actual return.

Hamler needs to be paid after this year, Jeudy needs his 5th year option picked up (13M).
Overall they have a pretty significant cap hit at WR this year and next for a team without a real #1, AND none of them are Payton's guys so no attachment. Their best move is to see if they can get value for one or more. I would guess their preference would be Sutton, but if there is no market, Jeudy at a high price is interesting to them.

The Raiders are confusing. Jimmy to the Jets or Texans made a lot of sense to me, but what does Jimmy do for you that just keeping Carr wouldn't have?
You don’t get it. Carr wasn’t a McDaniels guy. That’s why the offense sucked ass. Jimmy is definitely fixing those issues because Josh can work with him.

If you're going to have a middle of the road vet QB, saving a ton of cap to build around him is the only way to make it work
