NFL 2014: Same Faces, New Places


Whether through free agency or trades, this offseason contained big-name switches that may alter the landscape of the 2014 NFL season.

Denver brought in the Cowboys' all-time sack leader and seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker De Marcus Ware, who spent his first nine seasons in Dallas.

"The Broncos' mentality is a 'now' mentality," says Ware. "The time is now. Seeing what they're doing, I feel comfortable with what they're trying to mold."

Other familiar faces have joined new teams, including:

Wide receivers Eric DeckeR (New York Jets), De Sean Jackson (Washington) and Steve Smith (Baltimore), running backs Chris Johnson (New York Jets), Maurice Jones-Drew (Oakland) and Knowshon Moreno (Miami), cornerbacks Darrelle Revis (New England), Aqib Talib (Denver), and Alterraun Verner (Tampa Bay), safeties Jairus Byrd (New Orleans), Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia) and T.J. Ward (Denver) and defensive ends Jared Allen (Chicago) and Julius Peppers (Green Bay).

Here's notable NFL players who changed teams this past offseason:
