WR Danny Amendola

Rams to Patriots

The Patriots signed the oft-injured receiver in response to losing super-producer Wes Welker in free agency. They are hoping Amendola matches Welker's production, while helping the Patriots get younger.

WR Wes Welker

Patriots to Broncos

He wasted little time jumping at the opportunity to catch passes from Peyton Manning. Not many players go from one Hall of Fame-bound quarterback (Tom Brady) to another.

LB Elvis Dumervil

Broncos to Ravens

An alleged paperwork snafu made Dumervil an unrestricted free agent. The Ravens made an error-free run at Dumervil and scored an unexpected coup.

LB James Harrison

Steelers to Bengals

The long-time Steelers catalyst re-emerged in The Queen City, where he has a chance to become like royalty if he helps the Bengals unseat the Steelers and Ravens.

LB Dwight Freeney

Colts to Chargers

Another link to the Colts glory years is gone. For that, the Chargers are grateful because their defense lacked proven playmakers.

WR Anquan Boldin

Ravens to 49ers

The Ravens dumped Boldin and his hefty salary on the 49ers for a sixth-round draft pick. This move looks even more prescient for San Francisco in light of Michael Crabtree's torn Achilles.

QB Alex Smith

49ers to Chiefs

He wasn't going to play in San Francisco as long as Colin Kaepernick was healthy, so the 49ers granted him his wish to be traded. Smith counts as an upgrade for the Chiefs.

WR Mike Wallace

Steelers to Dolphins

He bolted the Steelers and took his talents to South Beach, where he is being counted upon to help the Dolphins close the gap on the Patriots.

WR Percy Harvin

Vikings to Seahawks

A game-breaking wide receiver is about the only thing the Seahawks lacked last season. Trading for Harvin has the potential to solve that problem once he returns from hip surgery.

WR Greg Jennings

Packers to Vikings

Going from catching passes from Aaron Rodgers for years to Christian Ponder figures to be quite a shock for Jennings now that he's in Minnesota.

QB Carson Palmer

Raiders to Cardinals

He wanted out of Oakland and an opportunity to play for a playoff-caliber team. Well, he succeeded on one of his goals.

CB Darrelle Revis

Jets to Buccaneers

The Jets traded their best player in response to stalled contract negotiations. The Buccaneers play the Jets in the opener, which adds a bit of drama to the transaction.

S Charles Woodson

Packers to Raiders

He returned to the Raiders for a second stint after getting spurned by teams he envisioned throwing gobs of money at his feet. This could make for a nice ending to Woodson's career.

DE Osi Umenyiora

Giants to Falcons

The Falcons needed someone to fill the void created by the departure of pass-rush specialist John Abraham. Umenyiora also knows a thing or two about what it takes to win a Super Bowl.

S Ed Reed

Ravens to Texans

He got swept up in the housecleaning by the Ravens after their Super Bowl victory. Now he's hoping he can help the Texans get over the hump, too.
