Familiar Faces at New Places
Odell Beckham Jr.

Whether through free agency or trades, this offseason contained big-name moves that may alter the landscape of the 2019 NFL season.

The Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and Oakland Raiders all had active offseasons, adding some of the best players at their positions. Cleveland acquired three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver ODELL BECKHAM JR. from the New York Giants and Oakland completed a trade with Pittsburgh to add four-time All-Pro wide receiver ANTONIO BROWN. The Jets dipped into free agency to sign three-time Pro Bowl running back LE’VEON BELL and four-time Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. MOSLEY.

"You can’t have enough competitive football players. He is a good football player, and you can’t have enough weapons around you. He is a really good asset to have on our football team." -- Cleveland GM JOHN DORSEY on Beckham Jr.

Several notable defensive backs were on the move during the offseason, headlined by HA HA CLINTON-DIX (Chicago), LANDON COLLINS (Washington), TASHAUN GIPSON (Houston), LAMARCUS JOYNER (Oakland), EARL THOMAS (Baltimore), TYRANN MATHIEU (Kansas City) and ERIC WEDDLE (Los Angeles Rams).

At the quarterback position, two Super Bowl MVPs switched teams in 2019, as JOE FLACCO was acquired by Denver and NICK FOLES signed with Jacksonville.

    "[Nick Foles] is the right person, the right quarterback for our team and our community. Nick is a winner. He led his team to a Super Bowl championship in 2017 and was selected as the coveted Super Bowl MVP. Adding Nick to our roster has made our team better." -- Jacksonville EVP of Football Operations TOM COUGHLIN

A number of other former Pro Bowlers will don a new uniform this season, including running backs FRANK GORE (Buffalo) and MARK INGRAM (Baltimore), wide receivers DESEAN JACKSON (Philadelphia) and GOLDEN TATE (New York Giants), tight end JARED COOK (New Orleans), offensive linemen TRENT BROWN (Oakland) and MITCH MORSE (Buffalo), defensive ends EZEKIEL ANSAH (Seattle), MICHAEL BENNETT (New England), FRANK CLARK (Kansas City) and TREY FLOWERS (Detroit), defensive tackles GERALD MCCOY (Carolina) and NDAMUKONG SUH (Tampa Bay), and linebackers KWON ALEXANDER (San Francisco), DEE FORD (San Francisco), C.J. MOSLEY (New York Jets) and TERRELL SUGGS (Arizona).
