2021 Free Agency Frenzy: Live tracker for deals NFL wide

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL offseason has been in full swing for several weeks, even in the absence of the traditional NFL Combine in Indianapolis earlier this year. Starting Monday at Noon New York Time, NFL teams and agents can begin to discuss the opportunities available for 2021 for those players whose contracts are set to expire at 4 PM New York Time Monday.

The Seattle Seahawks, of course, are in the position of having several unsigned starters from the 2020 season set to hit the market, including Chris Carson, Ethan Pocic, Shaquill Griffin and others. Add in the demands from Russell Wilson for the team to add superstars, particularly on the offensive line since he is tired of getting hit, while the front office has a history of adding the opposite of superstars to the offensive line in free agency.

There will be two types of reports emerging in the coming days. The first will be regarding those players who have been released as cap cuts since the end of the 2020 season. Those players are street free agents and are able to sign with a team and formalize their contracts immediately. The second set of reports will be regarding those players whose contract expire at 4:00 New York Time Wednesday, and those reports will be regarding agreements reached on contracts that will be formally signed and executed during the latter part of the week.
