Big Name Offseason Changes

Whether through free agency or trades, this offseason contained big-name switches that may alter the landscape of the 2015 NFL season..

Buffalo and Philadelphia swapped big-name players, with the Bills acquiring running back Le Sean Mc Coy -- the Eagles' all-time leading rusher -- in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso. Miami brought in four time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who spent his first five seasons in Detroit.

"I love a challenge and coming to the AFC East will be a challenge," says Suh. "I am absolutely excited about the opportunity with the Miami Dolphins. This team has a great nucleus and I cannot wait to get to work."

Other familiar faces have joined new teams, including quarterbacks Sam Bradford (Philadelphia), Matt Cassel (Buffalo), Nick Foles (St. Louis) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (New York Jets), wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (Cleveland), Andre Johnson (Indianapolis), Jeremy Maclin (Kansas City), Brandon Marshall (New York Jets) and Mike Wallace (Minnesota), tight ends Jordan Cameron (Miami), Charles Clay (Buffalo), Jimmy Graham (Seattle) and Julius Thomas (Jacksonville), running backs Reggie Bush (San Francisco), Frank Gore (Indianapolis), Darren Mc Fadden (Dallas) and De Marco Murray (Philadelphia), defensive backs Brandon Browner (New Orleans), Antonio Cromartie (New York Jets), Darrelle Revis (New York Jets), Antrel Rolle (Chicago), Cary Williams (Seattle) and TRamon Williams (Cleveland) and defensive tackles Haloti Ngata (Detroit) and Vince Wilfork (Houston).
