Here's a look at the fantasy-relevant player moves from the 2002 offseason. Also, you will find a list of existing free agent skill players. But first, a word from the NFL rule book.

Unrestricted free agents (UFAs) have logged four or more NFL seasons and are free to sign with any team unless given a franchise or transition tag. Restricted free agents (RFAs) have three years of pro experience. The player's current team has a right of first refusal on offers from other teams. If the team chooses to let a restricted free agent leave by opting to not match an offer, the team will receive draft-choice compensation from the player's new team.
