The 2021 NFL free agent signing period is just five days away!
It’s one of the most glorious times of the year. Essentially, it’s a very, very satisfying appetizer ahead of the April’s NFL draft, and God knows we could always use some more football content.
Who is going to land where? Who will be cut? Released? Traded even? Finding out what new faces will be in new places is one of the best highs you can get as a sports fan, so here’s to another fast and furious March.
Let’s have some fun.
