Day one of the NFL's free agent season was fairly quiet with none of the really big names finding new homes. The Cleveland Browns have made the biggest splash so far, singing offensive linemen LeCharles Bentley, Kevin Shaffer, and wide receiver Joe Jerevicius.

Bentley, as you can see above, is extremely proud of his ugly new uniform, showing if off like he was Johnny Weir with a new sequined jumper.

The Vikings also made a little bit of noise, which is not surprising, considering the, um, perks, that they can offer players. They resigned Koren Robinson and brought in kicker Ryan Longwell, linebacker Ben Leber, and running back Chester Taylor. The Ravens offered Chester a 5-year deal worth $17 million, but he opted instead to take the Vikings offer of 4 years, $14 million, and full access to Fred Smoot's library of nautical pornography and buoyant sex toys.

The big names like Edgerrin James, LaVar Arrington and Drew Brees remain available.

Edit: The Browns also signed today defensive tackle Ted Washington and punter Dave Zastudil. Geez.
