Winners and losers of free agency Day 2

The second day of NFL free agency went quietly, at least compared to the first day. But there are always highs and lows to hash through, and by god, we're going to hash through them.

Best signing

I like the idea of a playmaking cornerback behind a pass rush that will force quarterbacks off their rhythm. That's why Sean Smith could have a monster season with the Oakland Raiders, who already added pass-rusher Bruce Irvin to pair with budding superstar Khalil Mack. Smith has never run up big interception totals, but he's often around the ball. He has been credited with 53 pass breakups over the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins, and he'll have a chance for plenty more with the Raiders.
