Browns need to prove to Pats they want Garoppolo (1:11)

Bill Polian imagines the haul the Patriots would want from the Browns in order to take a potential Jimmy Garoppolo trade seriously. (1:11)

NFL Nation reporters assess Day 2 of free agency for every team, looking back at the deals made on Friday and ahead to deals that could be on the horizon:

AFC East | AFC North | AFC South | AFC West
NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC West


Buffalo Bills

After signing five players on Thursday, the Bills' activity slowed Friday, as there were no new signings or reported visits with free agents. The Bills' salary-cap situation is tight, but they cleared about $4 million in room on Friday by releasing safety Corey Graham. He became the sixth veteran player released by the Bills this week and at least the third defensive starter from last season to depart this offseason, joining cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safety Aaron Williams. -- Mike Rodak

Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins filled their biggest offseason need at linebacker by agreeing to a two-year, $12-million contract with Lawrence Timmons. The signing makes Miami more physical in the middle of its defense and also moves 2016 leading tackler Kiko Alonso to outside linebacker. Look for Miami to still add another linebacker early in next month's NFL draft, while filing a few more holes -- like safety -- in free agency. -- James Walker

New England Patriots

The Patriots made an explosive trade, giving up their first-round draft choice (No. 32 overall) for Saints receiver Brandin Cooks. The Patriots have arguably never been this aggressive before in Bill Belichick's 18-year tenure as coach, and there's still one big-ticket item they would like to address: re-signing linebacker Dont'a Hightower. -- Mike Reiss

New York Jets

The Jets still don't have a veteran quarterback, but they signed his blindside protector -- left tackle Kelvin Beachum. He's not an elite talent, but he gives them a competent starter, and it allows Ben Ijalana (re-signed Thursday) to play right tackle, where he will compete against Brandon Shell. They also added two pieces in the kicking game, singing kicker Chandler Catanzaro and re-signing long-snapper Tanner Purdum. -- Rich Cimini


Baltimore Ravens

Tight end Dennis Pitta reworked his contract for a second straight season to remain with the Ravens. He led the Ravens -- and all NFL tight ends -- with 86 receptions last season. With the return of Pitta, the Ravens have to decide whether there's room for another veteran tight end in Benjamin Watson. Baltimore can create $3 million in cap room by cutting him. General manager Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens aren't done in free agency and could add a cornerback, wide receiver and right tackle. -- Jamison Hensley

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals had a fairly quiet day after losing two free agents on Day 1. They re-signed veteran tackle Eric Winston, while linebacker Karlos Dansby, who was with the team for one season, signed with the Cardinals. Running back Rex Burkhead and defensive tackle Domata Peko are two Bengals free agents who remain unsigned. -- Katherine Terrell

Cleveland Browns

Departures were the order of the day for the Browns, as receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr. signed in Washington and quarterback Robert Griffin III was waived. Kenny Britt will step in for Pryor -- the Browns hope he does at least -- but the quarterback situation remains a mystery. The team has Brock Osweiler, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan on the roster -- for now. -- Pat McManamon

Pittsburgh Steelers

The loss of Lawrence Timmons, a 10-year staple at linebacker for the Steelers, defined the team's second day of free agency. The Steelers had braced for Timmons' departure to Miami on a two-year, $12-million deal and weren't willing to overpay to retain him. But Pittsburgh is keeping tabs on the defensive back market, making contact with former Chargers corner Brandon Flowers and former Cardinals corner Marcus Cooper this week. -- Jeremy Fowler


Houston Texans

The Texans had a quiet day of free agency and did not sign any players, a day after completing a blockbuster trade by sending Brock Osweiler to Cleveland. Houston did lose outside linebacker John Simon to the Colts, making him the third defensive starter the Texans lost in two days. -- Sarah Barshop

Indianapolis Colts

Colts general manager Chris Ballard continued his commitment to improving the team's linebacker core when he signed Jabaal Sheard and John Simon. Sheard was part of a New England defense that led the NFL in fewest points allowed at 15.6 per game last season. Simon comes to Indianapolis after playing in Houston, which had the league's overall top defense last season. Sheard and Simon join fellow linebacker Barkevious Mingo, who agreed to a deal on Thursday. The team also announced the signing of punter Jeff Locke on Friday. -- Mike Wells

Jacksonville Jaguars

No additional signings for the Jaguars on Friday, but they did bring in Calais Campbell, A.J. Bouye, Barry Church, Lerentee McCray and Branden Albert for quick news conferences. Albert and Campbell both said Tom Coughlin, the Jaguars' executive vice president of football operations, was a big draw for them. The Jaguars likely aren't done adding players, either, though most will be lower-tier free agents signed either for depth or special-teams purposes. -- Mike DiRocco

Tennessee Titans

The Titans' biggest addition so far came late Thursday night, when they landed Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan with a three-year, $30 million deal. On Friday, they struck a deal with Falcons return man Eric Weems and brought back tight end Phillip Supernaw, a player they didn't deem worthy of the low tender offer for a restricted free agent. Tennessee does not appear to be in range of a deal for Patriots inside linebacker Dont'a Hightower. -- Paul Kuharsky


Denver Broncos

The Broncos continued their plus-size approach to free agency, as they followed their signing of guard Ronald Leary on Thursday with the addition of tackle Menelik Watson on Friday. Watson projects to be the team's right tackle, so it remains to be seen what that means for Donald Stephenson. Stephenson's $4 million base salary is guaranteed if he's on the roster on Monday. But overall, the players that the Broncos have pursued the most aggressively in free agency thus far have all been offensive or defensive linemen. -- Jeff Legwold

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City's quiet start to free agency continued. The Chiefs have yet to sign an outside free agent or lose one of their own. They weren't expected to be big spenders in free agency after a spending splurge last week that saw them make Eric Berry the highest paid safety in the league and extend the contract of guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. -- Adam Teicher

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers brought in new free-agent addition Russell Okung to Chargers Park in San Diego on Friday, a day after he agreed to a four-year, $53 million deal. Coach Anthony Lynn called Okung a cornerstone piece for his team for years to come. Okung said that young Chargers running back Melvin Gordon reminded him of a player he blocked for in his past while with the Seahawks -- Marshawn Lynch. "His tenacity as a ball carrier reminds me of a young Marshawn," Okung told the team's website. "His willingness to fight for everything he has is definitely similar." -- Eric D. Williams

Oakland Raiders

Through two days of free agency, the Raiders have lost seven of their 13 unrestricted free agents and have yet to sign one, let alone re-sign any of their own. Is Reggie McKenzie, the Raiders general manager and the Pro Football Writers of America's executive of the year, fiddling while the Coliseum burns? Hardly. McKenzie, who entered the new league year about $43 million under the salary cap, is not one to spend wildly, especially not for players seen as backups. Sure, adding Calais Campbell to fortify the interior pass rush would have been nice for Oakland, but McKenzie is not going to pay Campbell the $15 million a year for four years with $30 million guaranteed the Jaguars threw his way. Not with defensive player of the year Khalil Mack and quarterback Derek Carr top priorities to get restructured deals this offseason. Meanwhile, NFL Network reported Vikings receiver/returner Cordarrelle Patterson was going to visit Oakland, and the Raiders remain a potential landing spot for running back Adrian Peterson. But as McKenzie has said, just because he has money, doesn't mean he's going shopping at Macy's. -- Paul Gutierrez


Dallas Cowboys

After losing four key players on the first day of fee agency, the Cowboys had a flurry of activity by agreeing to deals with wide receiver Terrance Williams, cornerback Nolan Carroll, defensive tackle Stephen Paea and defensive end Damontre Moore. Williams' return is something of a surprise because of the price he was expected to command, but the Cowboys were able to keep him on a four-year, $17 million deal that keeps around all of Dak Prescott's pass-catchers for another year. The addition of Carroll likely means the end for Brandon Carr or Morris Claiborne, with the Cowboys holding firm on getting either player at their prices. This was not about big-money spending. This was about filling holes that will allow them to keep their draft process pure. -- Todd Archer

New York Giants

That sound you hear? Oh, it's nothing. Just crickets. The Giants laid low on the second day of free agency. Not only did they not sign any players, but they didn't lose any, either. It was that kind of day, after the Giants had made a pair of notable signings the previous two days. All the Giants did on Friday was schedule a visit with offensive lineman D.J. Fluker. That at least can produce something over the weekend. -- Jordan Raanan

Philadelphia Eagles

On the same day that Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Chance Warmack were introduced, the Eagles added to their free-agent haul by re-upping guard/center Stefen Wisniewski to a three-year deal. While needs still remain, including at cornerback and running back, the team is tight against the cap and should be more focused on subtracting contracts rather than adding them at this point. -- Tim McManus

Washington Redskins

The Redskins didn't anticipate being able to sign receiver Terrelle Pryor, but his market was thin and his price tag dropped, so they pounced. Pryor signed a one-year deal worth $6 million, with another $2 million in incentives. So for a modest sum, the Redskins added a 1,000-yard receiver to offset the loss of receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. Both of them also surpassed 1,000 yards. But with Pryor, the Redskins have a big target, something they have lacked for a while. It's something they hope helps in the red zone. The Redskins weren't looking to add another primary target, but they felt this was too good of a deal to pass up. Now they can focus again on defense, where they're still seeking more help in the front seven. Defensive lineman Bennie Logan will visit with the Redskins on Saturday. -- John Keim


Chicago Bears

The Bears signed cornerback Prince Amukamara to a one-year deal for $7 million guaranteed on Friday. Amukamara has battled injuries much of his NFL career, but he'll start at one cornerback spot in 2017. The only significant defection for Chicago was veteran offensive lineman Ted Larsen, who signed a three-year deal with the Dolphins. Larsen primarily played guard for the Bears last season, but he also has experience at center. -- Jeff Dickerson

Detroit Lions

Friday was a much slower day of action for the Lions, who agreed to terms with cornerback D.J. Hayden but officially signed four players, including standout right tackle Rick Wagner. In all, the Lions inked Wagner, linebacker Paul Worrilow, defensive tackle Akeem Spence and defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on Friday -- a decent haul and what could be the majority of their free-agent crop. The names to watch on Saturday are guard T.J. Lang, who was in Seattle on Friday for his second free-agent visit, as well as tight ends Darren Fells and Jared Cook. Also, wide receiver Philly Brown was in Detroit for a visit, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. If the Lions get a deal done with Brown, it probably means the franchise is moving on from Andre Roberts. -- Michael Rothstein

Green Bay Packers

Just when it looked like it might be another day of free agent departures, with Julius Peppers going back to Carolina, the Packers pulled off a stunner when they signed veteran tight end Martellus Bennett. It means Jared Cook won't be back, but in Bennett they get another big target for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. -- Rob Demovsky

Minnesota Vikings

A day after giving Riley Reiff a five-year, $58.75 million contract, the Vikings added tackle Mike Remmers on a five-year, $30 million deal. They've filled their two biggest holes on the line, but now they'll have to figure out how to staff their secondary, following the departure of cornerback Captain Munnerlyn. The Vikings could still look at a guard or another corner, but they might need a receiver at some point too, with Cordarrelle Patterson visiting other teams and Charles Johnson departing for Carolina. -- Ben Goessling


Atlanta Falcons

It was a rather quiet day for the Falcons, with the biggest news being former special teams captain Eric Weems joining the Titans. Weems returned punt and kicks for the Falcons last season, so that's a void that needs to be filled. The Falcons could look to Justin Hardy, Taylor Gabriel -- provided Gabriel's second-round tender keeps him with the Falcons -- or Devin Fuller, who missed all of his rookie season following a shoulder injury. Of course, the Falcons could sift through what's left in free agency and add a wide receiver/return man, with Weems and Aldrick Robinson (49ers) now gone. The lone addition reported for the Falcons on Friday was agreeing to a one-year contract with cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who joined the team last year but saw little action. He could help on special teams. The Falcons still need to find a defensive tackle and offensive guard, so we'll see if that's addressed now or via the draft. -- Vaughn McClure

Carolina Panthers

The Panthers agreed to terms and/or signed five free agents on Friday, but none meant more than 37-year-old Julius Peppers, who returns to the team with which he spent his first eight (2002-2009) seasons. Peppers gives the Panthers a veteran every down end that should blend in nicely into a four-player rotation with Charles Johnson, Mario Addison and Wes Horton. The organization believed enough in Peppers, fifth on the NFL's all-time sack list and first with the Panthers (81), that it traded 2014 second-round pick Kony Ealy and a third-round pick to New England for the Patriots' second-round pick. The Panthers also added a veteran safety in Mike Adams, a nickel corner in Captain Munnerlyn and a speed receiver in Charles Johnson, but getting Peppers was by far the biggest splash on a day full of additions. -- David Newton

New Orleans Saints

The Saints only made one move on the second day of free agency -- and it was a doozy -- trading Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round pick to the Patriots for a first-round pick and third-round pick. The trade was immediately met with disappointment on social media from fans and Cooks' teammates alike -- likely in part because reports over the past week suggested the Saints might get more value in return. But this deal still fits in line with what the Saints intended to do all along: trade Cooks while his value was high, all while remaining confident that they can continue to field one of the NFL's elite passing offenses under Sean Payton, with Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and newly acquired Ted Ginn Jr., among others. -- Mike Triplett

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It was a relatively quiet day for the Bucs, who did not sign a new player but did host safety J.J. Wilcox on a free agent visit. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Chris Baker did arrive at One Buc Place to sign their new contracts; they will be formally introduced to the media on Saturday. The Bucs lost free-agent wide receiver and special teams captain Russell Shepard, which means that they now have a need for a backup wide receiver, unless they feel one of their developing players such as Josh Huff, Donteea Dye, Jr. or Freddie Martino can step up. This also might put more emphasis on re-signing backup cornerback and gunner Josh Robinson, who's an unrestricted free agent. There is also some interest in bringing in Nick Foles as a backup quarterback, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported. -- Jenna Laine


Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals signed and introduced linebacker Karlos Dansby (one-year contract) and kicker Phil Dawson (two-year contract). Both signings were first reported Thursday, so Friday was more of a formality than anything. Otherwise, Friday was quiet from a free-agency standpoint. Saturday stands to be much of the same, for now. -- Josh Weinfuss

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams, in a long-anticipated move, waived troubled running back Tre Mason, who spent all of 2016 in and out of legal trouble and was placed on the reserve/did not report list. The Rams began the first full day of the new league year with upward of $20 million in salary-cap space, which the team freed up by cutting ties with four key veteran players on Thursday night. They need depth in several areas -- at receiver, tight end and throughout their defense. But mainly, they need a center. Their two big additions, left tackle Andrew Whitworth and wide receiver Robert Woods, were introduced in a news conference. -- Alden Gonzalez

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers introduced seven of their newest additions in a news conference on Friday, but they were keeping busy even when they were answering questions. San Francisco added quarterback Matt Barkley, receiver Aldrick Robinson and linebacker Brock Coyle to bring their free-agent haul to 10 just in the past two days. The Niners aren't expecting any more significant additions right away, but they could have another pickup or two, with the defensive and offensive lines representing possible areas to bolster. -- Nick Wagoner

Seattle Seahawks

All eyes in Seattle are on Pro Bowl guard T.J. Lang, who is expected to take a free-agent visit Friday. Signing Lang would be a huge step in solidifying the Seahawks' offensive line but would require the type of financial commitment Seattle has been reluctant to make in free-agent offensive linemen in recent years. Meanwhile, the Seahawks continue to take a look at running backs, with Eddie Lacy scheduled to visit over the weekend. Seattle did not make any transactions on the second day of free agency. The only player the Seahawks have come to terms with so far is offensive lineman Luke Joeckel. -- Sheil Kapadia
