The NFL Free Agency legal tampering period began Monday for NFL free agents to begin negotiations with teams. Several former Alabama Football players hit the market in free agency for the first time landing massive contracts with new franchises. Here is how the Alabama Football alumni fared in free agency and where they'll be playing in 2024.

Josh Jacobs - Packers

The former Alabama running back finally got the long-term deal he's been looking for, signing with the Packers on a four-year $48 million deal. The Packers will likely lose running back AJ Dillion in Free Agency while releasing Aaron Jones to make room for Jacobs. As the feature back, Jacobs will have a chance to help lead one of the league's youngest teams to the playoffs after an impressive 2023.

Xavier McKinney - Packers

The former Alabama Football safety left New York for the Packers signing a massive four-year $68 million deal with Green Bay. The deal makes McKinney the fourth highest-paid safety in the league behind former Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and two others. McKinney and the Giants had long disagreed on a long-term deal and now McKinney has it with the Packers. He'll team up with Josh Jacobs in hopes of helping an up-start Packers team with championship aspirations. McKinney will be coached by his former Alabama DB's coach Derrick Ansley who is on the Packers staff.

Mac Jones - Trade - Jaguars

The former Alabama Football standout will be heading home to Jacksonville after the Patriots traded him to the Jaguars. While Mac played poorly he was also done in by the dysfunction in New England spending time with a defensive coordinator as his offensive playcaller. Jones will look to rebuild his game behind Trevor Lawrence in hope of extending his time in the NFL.
