Should Pats fans embrace Stidham era? (0:50)

Israel Gutierrez doesn't see why Patriots fans would be excited with Jarrett Stidham starting at quarterback and hopes they sign a free agent. (0:50)

Two star receivers were traded. A six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback is set to wear a new uniform for the first time in his career. And plenty of high-impact playmakers on both sides of the ball will suit up in new cities in 2020. It was a wild first week of NFL free agency, and there are even a few big names still out there on the market.

Tying the dozens of signings together as the dust starts to settle, our panel of NFL experts returns to answer several questions this week. Let's jump in.

Which team still has the biggest hole to fill?

Matt Bowen, NFL analyst: The Indianapolis Colts at wide receiver. The Colts didn't sign a free-agent receiver, and they head into the draft without a first-round pick after trading it for defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. Look for them to address the position -- in a deep wide receiver class -- early on Day 2 to add another target for new quarterback Philip Rivers.

Mike Clay, fantasy writer: The Carolina Panthers on defense. OK, not all of it, but most of it. The Panthers cleaned house under new coach Matt Rhule and currently have only four players rostered who played at least 30% of Carolina's defensive snaps last season (Brian Burns, Shaq Thompson, Donte Jackson and Tre Boston). Defensive tackle, edge, safety and cornerback all need significant attention.

Jeremy Fowler, national NFL writer: The Green Bay Packers at tight end. That Green Bay didn't make a harder push for Austin Hooper was a bit curious. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers needs help over the middle and at the complementary receiver spots opposite Davante Adams. Tight end is weak in the draft, too.

Mina Kimes, NFL writer: The New England Patriots at quarterback. I refuse to believe they're going to roll into 2020 with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as their only two options. But the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and New York Giants all need pass-rushers, too. I imagine Jadeveon Clowney and Yannick Ngakoue (via a trade) will end up on two of those three teams.
