As the last puzzle pieces of free agency come into place, Matt Harmon and Liz Loza start off the show this week by addressing a very serious voicemail from a distraught Giants fan driven to the brink of despair by GM Dave Gettleman (3:00).

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming! Matt and Liz are joined by Alex Gelhar, formerly of NFL Fantasy, to provide fantasy (and legal) insight through the show. And speaking of puzzles, a few puzzling moves trickled across the league as three, shall we say, less than good quarterbacks took a carousel ride to new locker rooms.

Matt and Liz kick off the quarterback discussion by analyzing the trade of Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans to presumably back up Marcus Mariota (9:00), then look at the Miami side of the equation where Ryan Fitzpatrick was signed by the presumably tanking Dolphins (14:20).

Also in the news, Rams fans were treated to news of the signing of their new backup QB, the immortal Blake Bortles (19:30), while the very mortal Tyler Eifert re-signed with the Cincinnati Bengals (21:30).

Moving to two former Packers, Randall Cobb signed a one year deal with the Dallas Cowboys (24:20) and any dreams of Jordy Nelson pairing with Antonio Brown were shut down as he was released by the Oakland Raiders. The crew discusses their favorite potential landing spots for Nelson and wonder if he could return to the green and gold (27:10).

Lastly, Matt, Liz and Alex discuss Chris Conley signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars and who among that receiver corps seems more likely to establish a good rapport with newly signed QB Nick Foles (30:20).
