NFL players reaction to the trades and signings that went done as free agency signing period began.
The start of the NFL's new league year on Tuesday afternoon brought a dizzying flurry of roster moves.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis announced his retirement. The St. Louis Rams reportedly will send quarterback Sam Bradford to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Nick Foles. Jimmy Graham is reportedly going to the Seattle Seahawks. And the Detroit Lions acquired Haloti Ngata from the Baltimore Ravens, just to name a few.
Players were shocked to see their teammates and rivals changing teams. Some wondered if they could be dealt next.

Funny thing is the "free agent" guys are overshadowed by guys under contract who have been traded. Fascinating.— Greg Olsen (@gregolsen88) March 10, 2015
