With the NFL lockout finally behind them, the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins have been two of the more active teams in the open period.
Washington trimmed the fat with defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and quarterback Donovan McNabb, long expected to be free agency casualties. In return, Washington received a pair of sixth-round draft picks and a fifth-round draft pick.
It marked the end of a pair of soured relationships that would have perhaps worked out better in 2007 than 2011. But it's the end of a chapter, regardless.
The Redskins also cut offensive lineman Casey Rabach and defensive linemen Phillip Daniels and Ma'ake Kemoeatu. They signed Baltimore cornerback Josh Wilson, New York Jets backup quarterback Kellen Clemens, New York Giants defensive lineman Barry Cofield and Baltimore wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, though none are particularly noteworthy. Washington also re-signed veteran wide receiver Santana Moss to a three-year deal worth roughly $15 million.
Up in the air are the futures of Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh, cornerback Carlos Rogers and a few other lower-priority free agents.
In Baltimore, the Ravens finally got their first glimpse of linebacker Sergio Kindle, whose rookie season was cut short with a skull fracture. They cut longtime tight end Todd Heap, running back Willis McGahee and wide receiver Derrick Mason in the free agent frenzy.
Meanwhile, the team has signed seven of its eight rookies from the 2011 NFL Draft, excluding cornerback Jimmy Smith, the team's first-round pick.
The Baltimore secondary could suffer a few hits, with the futures of Chris Carr, Fabian Washington and Dawan Landry up in the air after already losing Wilson to the Redskins.
There's plenty of action still to come, but it's been a wild 48 hours so far.
