Free Agency 2022, Pt 1/?

Happy Saturday, all, presuming you've climbed out of your post-Thanksgiving stupor. There's a lot to talk about, and no, I don't mean the USC-Notre Dame rivalry game (kicks at 4:30 p.m. our time), or the improving fortunes of the San Francisco 49ers or the Golden State Warriors.
