The NFL offseason kicked into a higher gear Monday with the start of the league’s legal tampering period, which set the stage for the official beginning of free agency with the new league year Wednesday afternoon.

You’ll rarely see the league’s biggest stars hit free agency in their primes given the rarity of teams willingly letting them go, so teams are typically looking for second-tier stars, quality starters and depth to pursue their Super Bowl dreams.

The biggest name in this year’s class was arguably running back Le’Veon Bell, who’s a two-time All-Pro running back, but also sat out last season. Linebackers C.J. Mosley and Anthony Barr, safeties Tyrann Mathieu and Landon Collins and quarterback Nick Foles are among the top names that already agreed to deals Monday.
