NFL free agency: Cardinals need to decide whether it's time to rebuild

Have you had a chance to exhale after a frantic first day of NFL free agency? Good, because the signings are showing no sign of stopping.

Friday evening brought a bevy of moves, highlighted by Martellus Bennett announcing that he would be taking his talent to Green Bay’s offense, and Julius Peppers returning to where it all started by signing a deal with Carolina. However, Friday’s free-agent moves were overshadowed by a blockbuster trade, with the Patriots trading away a package of draft picks (including their first-round selection) for Saints WR Brandin Cooks. After trading for Kony Ealy earlier in the day, we can likely assume that Bill Belichick never sleeps.

Below, SI writers weighed in with their takes on every big move and juicy rumor as they surface.
