NFL free agent tracker 2021: Keep pace with offseason's major moves

The NFL's free agency period for the 2021 offseason officially kicked off at 4 p.m. ET on March 17 – the point when players with expiring contracts could sign with new teams and also the juncture at which all 32 of the league's clubs were required to comply with this year's $182.5 million salary cap.

Prior to March 17, only players who had been released from their previous contracts were eligible to join new clubs, new Arizona Cardinals DE J.J. Watt being an example.

Other pending free agents could begin negotiating (and agreeing to) new deals March 15. Meanwhile, in a year when the cap falls by nearly $16 million due to revenue losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, several name players suddenly find themselves looking for work as teams slashed salaries to get under the cap – Eric Fisher among that group.

TE Rob Gronkowski will spend a second season with the Buccaneers.
