With NFL free agency officially set to begin Thursday afternoon, there’s already a whole heck of a lot that has happened around the football world. Such is the nature of the beast when teams are given a two-day window to negotiate contracts with the reps for impending free agents.

From what has to be described as complete dysfunction in Washington to the San Francisco 49ers throwing money to the masses like it were candy, there have been some rather interesting developments thus far this week.

Meanwhile, it sure looks like the Dallas Cowboys are moving on from former Pro Bowl signal caller Tony Romo. All the while, questions continue to come up regarding the future of Kirk Cousins in the nation’s capital.

These are among the top-eight takeaways around the NFL heading into the official start of free agency.
