The 2023 NFL free agency window has officially opened, as teams can now negotiate with free agents on new contracts. And while the new year officially begins Wednesday, teams can all but sign the dotted line on deals for the next 48 hours.

Because of that, Sactown Sports has decided to bring you the NFL free agent tracker, giving you updated information on all the moves around the NFL. The biggest moves of Day 1 have seen major shakeups in both the NFC & AFC, including with the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers shocked the league by signing defensive tackle Javon Hargrave Monday morning, agreeing to a 4 year, $84 million deal to come to The Bay. The Raiders have also been busy, signing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a long-term deal.
