2017 Player Moves Summary

2017 NFL Player Moves Summary: Free Agent Signings, Trades, and Key Draft Picks

By Loot, NFL Handicapper, Lootmeister.com

Once the Super Bowl concludes, a lot of NFL football fans tune out for a number of months. They follow other sports or simply need some time to decompress. And by the time the next season rolls around, fans are a bit lost when it comes to players on new teams. In this piece, we decided to include all player moves into one article. Below, we list all teams alphabetically, highlighting their arrivals, in addition to which draft picks could make an impact. Sometimes it’s handy to have a summary of 2017 draft picks. It also helps to have a 2017 summary of free agent signings. Take a look, as we get primed for what should be an eventful (and hopefully profitable) 2017 NFL season. Also note that this list just attempts to capture the more-noteworthy moves. Anyone worth mentioning is on this list, keeping in mind this is being written in early-June and additional player movement could ensue. Still, it’s a convenient guide for 2017 NFL player moves.
