NFL free agency 2014: Roundup of Day 1 action

Jim Rogash

There were a lot of contracts doled out. Here is how it went down.

Tuesday was the first day of free agency -- and it wasn't even a full day. Perhaps the tweet of the day was this, from Bill Barnwell of Grantland.

So what were the deals?

First, lets go with the Arizona Cardinals and former Cardinals.

Arizona agreed to terms with tackle Jared Veldheer on a five-year $35 million contract. They re-signed Jay Feely, Jake Ballard and Frostee Rucker.

Karlos Dansby agreed to a four-year, $24 million contract with the Browns.

Receiver Andre Roberts leaves Arizona to head to the Washington Redskins on a four-year, $16 million deal.

Running back Peyton Hillis is returning to the New York Giants.

Linebacker Perry Riley is re-signing with Washington.

Kicker Adam Vinatieri returns to the Colts.

Defensive end Michael Johnson is leaving the Bengals to go to Tampa Bay on a five-year deal.

The Falcons bring back defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux on a three-year extension.

Running back Joique Bell gets three more years with the Lions.

Safety Stevie Brown returns to the Giants.

Tight end Anthony McCoy returns to the Seahawks on a one-year contract.

Denver re-signs receiver Andre Caldwell for two years and $3.45 million.

In addition to Karlos Dansby, the Browns also add safety Donte Whitner.

Defensive end Arthur Jonesleaves the Ravens to head to the Colts.

The Titans bring Dexter McCluster in on a three-year deal.

The Raiders lose Lamarr Houston to the Chicago Bears.

Branden Albert, who was reportedly a target of the Arizona Cardinals, lands with the Miami Dolphins on a five-year contract worth $45 million.

San Francisco adds to their secondary and replaces Donte Whitner with Antoine Bethea on a four-year contract.

The Raiders replace Jared Veldheer with Rodger Saffold. They later added Austin Howard on an absurd five0year $30 million contract.

The Broncos add Aqib Talib.

Donald Brown came to terms with the San Diego Chargers.

There will surely be more to keep up with on Wednesday.
