Eagles Exodus, Major Trades, Kicker History & Still No Word on Aaron Rodgers

Day 2 of the NFL’s free agent tampering window didn’t slow down. The official free agency window opens today, but the deals are already in the works. Another dozen-or-so players joined new clubs yesterday. And again… No, Aaron Rodgers wasn’t one of them. The Jets still look poised to land the four-time MVP after adding former Rodgers target and Packers WR Allen Lazard. Could today be the day Rodgers finally speaks up? Meanwhile, the Eagles’ exodus continued with two more departures (that’s four defensive starters now gone). The Raiders won’t stop signing guys. The Giants keep making moves, including a splashy trade with the Raiders for TE Darren Waller. And the Colts gave Matt Gay the biggest free agency deal for a kicker in NFL history. Here are the biggest names on the move from Tuesday.
