The first week of NFL free agency isn't over yet, and it's already becoming difficult to keep track of who's coming and going.

Anquan Boldin's a 49er, Reggie Bush a Lion, Steven Jackson a Falcon, Greg Jennings a Viking and Wes Welker a Bronco.

Ryan Fitzpatrick's no longer a Bill, Dwight Freeney's out as a Colt, Mike Wallace as a Steeler and Nnamdi Asomugha as an Eagle.

That's just for starters.

Dozens of players have moved from one team to another in the past few weeks, from the days leading up to free agency and then during a feeding frenzy that began Tuesday -- when the free-agent season opened with a flourish.

Since the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl last month (that was only last month?), NFL player moves are being made fast and furiously.

Ray Lewis and Matt Birk retired after helping the Ravens to a second Super Bowl title, high-salaried players were released by teams in a rush to get under the salary cap, and agents met with team executives trying work out new deals for their clients.

Some players have found new homes, others are still looking.

And then there's defensive end Elvis Dumervil, formerly of the Broncos. Because his contract paperwork did not reach team headquarters in time to beat a Friday deadline, he was released. For now, there's no telling where he'll end up.

Here's a team-by-team glance of notable players who have either arrived or departed from NFL teams through noon Saturday, knowing full well there will be many more additions and subtractions in the coming weeks.
