Free Agency Moves Thread 2 (Updated: 3/3/2010)

Because you asked so nicely DrewK here's the new stuff. 

Now that the off-season is upon us free agency will be heating up big time. Players will be getting franchised, some will be extended and others cut. If you hear of any big signings or releases add them here in a comment and I'll update the thread. Try to keep any discussion of free agency moves (trades, signigns, etc.) here. Rec it up so we can keep the conversation going.
