2012 NFL Free Agency Open Thread: Megatron Gets Paid

I wondered if Calvin Johnson had some interest in hitting the market next year as an unrestricted free agent, but I'm sure the Lions had no interest in that one. If he did have any second thoughts, a nine figure contract ($130+ million) changed his mind. Calvin Johnson Gets $132 Million From Lions; Richest Deal In NFL History - SBNation.com

What else is going on in free agency?

Chargers Free Agency 2012: Robert Meachem Agrees To 4-Year Deal - SBNation.com. I like this move for the Chargers. His stats should get a little bump with more playing time, and Philip Rivers will help him look good.

The Buccaneers keep spending on where they needed help, their offensive line and in the secondary:

Eric Wright Joins Bucs On 5-Year Deal - SBNation.com.

Meanwhile in Seattle: Matt Flynn's First Free Agent Visit Will Be In Seattle - SBNation.com. But not before they meet with Chad Henne.

And I'm not sure why the Vikings are interested in TE John Carlson. But, inexplicably, he's being pursued by multiple teams.

The Bears are talking to CB Kelvin Hayden, who might be a good signing if he's healthy. And they've signed their second special teams free agent, Falcons KR Eric Weems. Which is a sign they're expected to lose Pro Bowl special teams player Corey Graham.

What other free agent news have I missed?
