With millions upon millions of cash to spend on top players coming out of contract years, teams spent big during the first week of NFL free agency.

Not all that money was spent wisely. And not all big signings came with massive price tags.¬†Sorting through the league’s transaction logs this past week we can certainly say some teams made out better than others, while some didn’t do much of anything at all.

One thing we know for sure at this point is that what the Super Bowl champs have done just isn’t fair to the rest of the league.

Meanwhile, another team that’s been a top dog on the NFC side of the league seems to be regressing.

Leading off on the winners side of things is an NFC North team that appears to be on the upswing after a couple of huge moves to upgrade its offensive line.
