Although no professional sports are being played right now, it’s still business as usual as teams try to improve their fortunes before play resumes. The NFL free agency period opened yesterday and immediately major trades and big signings were the order of the day. One of the biggest deals was Houston trading its’ All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona for running back David Johnson and a second round pick. Dallas resigned wide receiver Amari Cooper to a five year, $100 million deal. Minnesota resigned quarterback Kirk Cousins and then promptly traded top wide receiver Stefon Diggs to Buffalo for a load of draft picks. The Las Vegas Raiders signed quarterback Marcus Mariota to a deal which signals that Tom Brady probably will not be coming to town. Mariota was presumably signed to be the backup to starting QB David Carr. Brady meanwhile, got no real interest on the first day of free agency, but in a brand new development, announced this morning that he won’t be resigning with New England. Tampa Bay is rumored to be a top suitor for Brady.
