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.

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.
