The first six days of free agency have seen a dizzying pace of activity throughout the NFL. As for the Patriots, they’ve said goodbye to a pair of high-profile receivers and added two others, and also made some interesting moves on the defensive side of the ball.

NFL free agency opens Tuesday afternoon at 4 -- not counting the weird negotiating/tampering window this weekend -- which will bring with it a blizzard of rumors, half-truths and hearsay that will likely snap Twitter in half before things are done.
