Teams are now able to negotiate with free agents as of Monday morning. We’ll keep track of the relevant news here, especially as it pertains to the Seattle Seahawks.

The Lions are expected to sign CB Justin Coleman

The Seahawks re-signed cornerback Akeem King last year to a one-year deal, a key move I’m sure once they anticipated that Coleman was not coming back. That must have been obvious during their negotiations and now if he becomes the highest-paid slot corner in the league, Seattle likely did the right thing to let him go. Nobody will ever get more value-per-dollar from Coleman than they did.

Minnesota Vikings bring back DT Shamar Stephen

Last offseason, the Seahawks signed both Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen. Johnson was cut after Week 1 and re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings. Now Stephen is headed to Minnesota again, too.

Chicago Bears sign RB Mike Davis

The Seahawks’ third-down back for 2018 gets a two-year deal from Chicago, who might be looking to shop starter Jordan Howard.

Lions also grab DE Trey Flowers

Detroit is trying to win free agency, because that works so often.

Washington signs S Landon Collins to huge deal

Maybe Earl Thomas can do quite well for himself after all. Landon Collins left the Giants — who did not want to tag him — for an $84 million deal over six years with Washington.

49ers sign LB Kwon Alexander

The Niners surprisingly signed Alexander to a four-year, $54 million deal. He has missed 16 games over the last two seasons and is notoriously bad at tackling.

I have never thought too highly of the moves made by John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan since they arrived two years ago, and this deal doesn’t go against what I would have expected.

The Raiders sign T Trent Brown

The tackle market is a dangerous one, as Trent Brown is now paid as a fop-five player at his position. This should affect how the Seahawks view restricted free agent George Fant, as well as deciding on the fifth-year option of Germain Ifedi. Brown was with the New England Patriots last season, making it the second year in a row that they lost a free agent tackle to a huge deal. (Nate Solder, Giants)

Rams re-sign DE Dante Fowler, Jr

The Rams traded for Fowler last season and liked him well enough to essentially sign him to the deal they gave Ndamukong Suh in 2018. It’s a lot of money for a pass rusher who still has a long ways to go before proving himself. It’s only three million less than what Frank Clark would get on the franchise tag.

Eagles sign DT Malik Jackson to three-year deal

With Philadelphia trading Michael Bennett, they signed Jackson to bolster the defensive line just a couple days after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville Jaguars sign Nick Foles to $88 million deal

The Jaguars were well in line to get the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, and they’ve now signed him for $22 million per season.

Kansas City Chiefs sign S Tyrann Mathieu

“Honey Badger” was on a one-year contract with the Houston Texans, and he’s turned that into a bigger payday from the Chiefs. Kansas City figured to be in the running for Earl Thomas, but that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.
