Lots of moving trucks have taken off to new destinations since NFL free agency kicked off on March 9. It did not take but a few hours for some of the better free agent prospects to gets whisked away by new teams. Yet, some higher-caliber free agents remain untouched.

A significant number of trades have also occurred. One of them sent one of the league’s most dynamic wide receivers to the Super Bowl champions.

Meanwhile, some non-free agents have been doing an excellent job of distracting the news media. There could be an interesting new running back joining the Oakland Raiders. Off the field, a young Dallas Cowboys star looks to be taking his partying habits a tad too far.

We are covering all of this and more as we discuss eight of the biggest surprises that have taken place so far during NFL free agency.
