http://twitter.com/#!/coronaphil/status/179542691024093184

If you’re an NFL fan there are probably a handful of dates on your calender which you consider a holiday, but the general population wouldn’t. There’s the Super Bowl, the first game of the regular season, the draft, the trade deadline and of course the start of free agency.

Today teams will be cutting and signing players at such a rapid pace it will be hard for huge sports companies like ESPN to even keep up with the news!

Luckily, Twitchy editors will be stalking Twitter and updating this post throughout the evening and night to keep you up to date with all of the latest action.

Scoopage: Take 1 name off the list of free agents set to hit the market today. Saints have just agreed to new 5 yr deal w WR Marques Colston
