Wildcat weekend in the National Football League is in the books. But the permutations of who has the ball, and where they’re carrying it, will continue to unfold over the next days, if not weeks.

Essentially, the market has been flooded with players.

Last Tuesday there were 2,880 players who could call NFL teams their homes. Today there are roughly 1,690. In other words, almost 30% of NFL rosters are looking for new employment.

That has put a lot of players’ dreams in limbo, and left a lot of teams scanning the waiver wires to upgrade perceived weaknesses. It will also leave a lot of players who are clinging to the bottom end of roster spots looking over their shoulders. This weekend is one of seismic shifts in the personal lives of players, and one of fine-tuning for management, as it prepares for the opening of the NFL season.
