Steelers delay Bell's contract negotiations (1:32)

Marcellus Wiley says Le'Veon Bell will have to wait for his money since most NFL deals do not get done until a deadline is approaching. (1:32)

Elite player trades and a fast-spinning quarterback carousel have made this NFL free-agency period especially compelling.

This 32-team review features insights from coaches, executives and other league insiders on all the big moves after Marcus Peters, Ndamukong Suh, Kirk Cousins, Alex Smith, Jarvis Landry and others found new homes.

Some of the teams receiving high marks from fans and media didn't fare quite as well here. That included a couple of the teams that made the biggest splashes.

ARI | ATL | BAL | BUF | CAR | CHI | CIN | CLE | DAL | DEN | DET | GB | HOU | IND | JAC | KC | LAC | LAR | MIA | MIN | NE | NO | NYG | NYJ | OAK | PHI | PIT | SF | SEA | TB | TEN | WAS


Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are the only team in the league guaranteed to have both a new head coach and new primary starting quarterback for 2018. They weren't serious players in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, and of the viable alternatives in the veteran market, none had significant connections to new Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

"If there are any quarterbacks who fit McCoy's system, I will give them credit in that Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon fit what McCoy wants," an exec said. "You have to be a veteran and extremely smart to understand that offense, which is basically the Peyton Manning offense where you do a whole lot at the line of scrimmage, especially with protections."

Finding a quarterback in the draft could be tough with Arizona slotted 15th in the order.

"Bradford-Glennon is not ideal, but you could do a lot worse," an insider said. "What they really need is for David Johnson to have a Todd Gurley-type season that makes everyone around him look better, and that could happen."
