Free Agency’s 2nd Wave 🌊

More Running Back Moves — Derrick Henry (Ravens), Aaron Jones (Vikings) — Highlight 2nd Wave of Free Agency… But Where is Dallas?

The second waves of NFL Free Agency came crashing ashore into the midweek. A number of high-profile players were swept off the board on Tuesday, but one team — often in the spotlight — is oddly quiet. The Dallas Cowboys have done… nothing!? 31 of the NFL’s 32 teams have completed a minimum of three transactions, either via FA signing, trade or a re-sign. The Cowboys have one. They re-signed a long-snapper. Yikes. Is the Dallas playoff curse deterring FAs from wanting to play for the Cowboys? Or are Jerry Jones and fam simply sitting this year out? Bizarre.


Regardless of the Cowboys’ disappearing act, Tuesday’s biggest deals included a bunch of running backs — Derrick Henry (Ravens) and Aaron Jones (Vikings). Henry joining the Baltimore backfield with Lamar Jackson should make the AFC’s #1 seed even scarier in 2024. A few defensive studs, including Danielle Hunter, are also on the move. Here’s the latest:
