Triangle Cheat Sheet: NFL Free Agency Day 1
We’re one day into the NFL’s free-agency signing period, and boy, has it been busy. We understand not everybody has time to follow every single Browns signing or 49ers signing, let alone the specific contract details of each. So to help keep you up to date on the big moves you should know, we’ve compiled a (very short) list of NFL guys some of the teams have signed, accompanied with a social media element to mix things up. All contract information is courtesy of Spotrac.com.

New Orleans Saints
