Sneaky Good NFL Free-Agent Signings

Free-Agency hasn't completely come and gone, but the first wave has officially ended. I certainly wouldn't call this year's FA flurry a rambunctious one, but nevertheless, there were some sneaky good signings that came down the wire. 

And here are the signings I found to be the most "sneaky good": 

Terrelle Pryor signed a 1 year, 6 million dollar deal with the Washington Redskins. This is a team that lost Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free-agency, and actually may have upgraded their WR core. 2nd year player out of TCU Josh Doctson and Terrelle Pryor could provide even more of a spark in DC than Garcon & Jackson. 

Martellus Bennett signed a 3 year, 21 million dollar deal with the Green Bay Packers. He, believe it or not, might be the best tight end Aaron Rodgers has ever played with. Given his biggest competition for that moniker is Jermichael Finley, I think I'm right. Both should benefit greatly. 

Dontari Poe signed a 1 year, 8 million dollar contract with the NFC Champ Falcons. This is a team that has put together a speedy defense, anchored by Vic Beasley on the outside, but needed to sure up their interior. While Poe has had troubled keeping the weight off, he's got a 500k dollar bonus coming his way if he can do it this one year, that sounds like motivation enough for me. 

Cordarrelle Patterson signed a 2 year, 8.5 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders historically value speed demons, and Patterson fits the mold. He's also one of the league's best return men, and a guy that can put Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, and Michael Crabtree in good field position is the definition of sneaky value. 

AJ Bouye signed the biggest deal of any player switching teams so far this offseason - a whopping 5 year, 67.5 million dollar contract. If he delivers, he'll be worth every penny for the Jags. Not only are the Jags now loaded with defensive talent, they hold the 4th overall draft pick in a year with tremendous defensive players available, AND they just stole one of the best defensive players from a division rival in the Texans. Win, win, win.
