The NFL's new league year started on Wednesday and teams quickly worked to finalize deals that were agreed upon during the legal tampering period that started earlier in the offseason.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown, who was traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders, and his former teammate Le'Veon Bell, now with the Jets, are two of several players who will wear a new uniform in 2019.

The Giants traded wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns for safety Jabrill Peppers and 2019 first and third round draft picks while Nick Foles cashed in his recent success with the Eagles and inked an $88 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, among others.

Other top remaining free agents include Ndamukong Suh, Ezekiel Ansah and Ronald Darby.
