The 2018 NFL season and free agency does not officially open until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, but a slew of moves have already been reported. A number which included quarterback movement.

With that, here’s a complete list of recent QB movement in the NFL:

Kirk Cousins
The most coveted quarterback on the market in Cousins plans to sign a massive deal with the Minnesota Vikings. The length is three years for a whopping $84 million. It’s all fully guaranteed, too.

Sam Bradford
Once a speculated thrower for the Bills in 2018, Bradford landed a solid deal with the Arizona Cardinals. He’ll reportedly sign a one-year deal for some decent change, $20 million with $15 million guaranteed. His deal has an added one-year option added as well.

Case Keenum
The first free agent domino to fall on Monday, Keenum signed on with the Denver Broncos after a bunch of speculation that Cousins would land with his former team, the Vikings.

Teddy Bridgewater
Once viewed as a player ready to breakout to NFL stardom, a brutal knee injury put his career on hold. He’ll fully be back in 2017, but with the New York Jets on a one-year deal. Your typical “prove it” deal, it would appear.

Josh McCown
It could be quite the battle for playing time with the Jets. In 2017, the Jets were “tanking.” Except they didn’t, en route to a 5-11 finish. McCown played well enough to get them there. He’ll battle with Bridgewater and perhaps a rookie as New York will draft sixth-overall.

Drew Brees
As expected, Brees ain’t going no where. The Saints re-signed Brees to a two-year, $50 million deal. He actually signed his deal unlikely the others, since it was with his current team.

Mike Glennon
After signing Bradford, who has a laundry list of injury history, the Cardinals decided to grab Glennon as an insurance policy.

Chase Daniel
A candidate for someone to sit behind a rookie quarterback drafted by the Bills. But now he won’t, because he’s going to exactly that for the Bears and Mitchell Trubisky after landed a two-year deal there.

So, who’s left?

Nick Foles (via trade), AJ McCarron, Matt Moore, Chad Henne, Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert, EJ Manuel, Brock Osweiler, Jay Cutler, Colin Kaepernick.
