Although free agency only technically begins Wednesday afternoon, Monday and Tuesday’s “legal tampering period” gives football fans plenty to discuss in terms of player movement ahead of the 2023 NFL season.
Matt Harmon is joined by 4for4’s Jean Daigle to recap all of the biggest trades in this early-week period, but start by announcing Friday night that the Carolina Panthers traded for the Chicago Bears’ first pick in exchange for four future picks and WR DJ Moore. The guys explain why this is a great trade for both teams, how Carolina can get their QB of the future, and Chicago can bolster a weak WR room with one of the best wides available this offseason.
Then they talk about Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler requesting a trade and why it’s potentially a tough market for free agent RBs right now. For the rest of the show, Matt and John cycle through a slew of teams and their big off-season moves: the Las Vegas Raiders sign Jimmy Garoppolo and trade Darren Waller, the Houston Texans begin to build a “not embarrassing” roster, the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons spend money on the offensive line, Miami Dolphins trade for CB Jalen Ramsey and more.
