Now three full days into NFL free agency, and a lot of the big-name players are already inked to deals. Such is the nature of the beast in a league where things happen incredibly fast during the offseason.

While a ton of the focus has been placed on what the New England Patriots have done, there’s been some remarkable value signings around the NFL over the past few days.

Wide receivers did not find a market to their liking, forcing two top-end free agents to sign short-term deals with new teams. Meanwhile, one quarterback took a relatively small deal for an opportunity to start for his former offensive coordinator.

All the while, some under-the-radar moves were made by teams in need of help on the defensive side of the ball.

These are among the 10-best value signings thus far in NFL free agency.
