It was a massive first day of the 'legal tampering' period of NFL Free Agency for the Green Bay Packers.

Fans rode the emotional rollercoaster, with a few big names getting cut from the roster, while the team inked big deals with a couple of premium free agents.

The Packers first signed running back Josh Jacobs, arguably the top name on the market for his position and followed that up by inking a deal with the top safety on the market in Xavier McKinney.
