The conclusion of the NFL draft is a good time to assess where each team stands in their offseason transactions. While there are still quality free agents and more moves to be made before the 2020 season kicks off , here's a look at how every team has fared thus far.

Find out how every NFL team's offseason grades out right here. Now that we're in the dog days of the NFL offseason , we here at CBSSports.com have been taking the time to look at what every team has done to improve their rosters and given a grade for each of them.

The jury’s still out on practically all of the big moves from the 2020 NFL offseason, but that won’t stop us from issuing some initial grades based on the first month of the campaign. Here are some knee-jerk reviews.

Buffalo Bills trade a first-round pick and three other picks for WR Stefon Diggs

The Bills are 3-0 and quarterback Josh Allen has turned a corner in Year 3, thanks in part to the addition of Diggs. That said, it was a steep price to pay for a veteran wideout. And it’s worth noting that Justin Jefferson, who was essentially drafted by the Minnesota Vikings to replace Diggs, is off to a super-strong start after a breakout Week 3 performance.

Bill Belichick praises 'underrated' Russell Wilson: 'I don't really see anybody better than this player'

  Bill Belichick praises 'underrated' Russell Wilson: 'I don't really see anybody better than this player' Belichick is absolutely right that Wilson does not get the credit he deserves from most fans and media. Too often, Mr. Unlimited is left out of conversations about the best quarterback in the NFL."Honestly, I think he’s in a way underrated by the media or the fans, I don’t know," Belichick said. "But I don’t really see anybody better than this player.

Which NFL team made the biggest offseason upgrades? Mike Clay explains how the offseason Teams have driven themselves mad trying to get Bill Belichick results out of former Belichick players The moves this organization made this offseason suggest it's trying to win now, even as it retools at

It's only the midpoint of the NFL season , but let's be honest: There are plenty of fan bases already looking ahead to the 2019 offseason . No offense intended there to any particular team nor certainly to the fact that surprise turnarounds are possible.

GRADE: B

Arizona Cardinals acquire WR DeAndre Hopkins for RB David Johnson and some draft capital

Arizona looks like a contender thanks partly to the presence of Hopkins, who’s on pace to catch an NFL-record 171 passes for 1,899 yards.

GRADE: A

Houston Texans acquire RB David Johnson and some draft capital for WR DeAndre Hopkins

This isn’t going well for Bill O’Brien. Johnson performed well in the opener, but the 0-3 Texans miss Johnson and the veteran back has just seven catches and is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry.

GRADE: F

Indianapolis Colts acquire DT DeForest Buckner for a first-round pick

Buckner is also getting paid huge money, but he’s been dominant as both a pass-rusher and a run defender for the league’s highest-rated defense. So far, he’s totally been worth sacrificing a first-rounder.

The NFL has mostly escaped that measure for now, considering the regular season for professional football doesn't begin until September , but they've not been And with the offseason scheduled to begin for several teams on April 6, the second major impact to the league is about to be felt.

GRADE: A

Miami Dolphins sign CB Byron Jones

Jones signed the most valuable contract on the 2020 free-agent market, which always seemed a bit odd considering he was a one-time Pro Bowler with two career interceptions. He was decent early on, but is now injured.

GRADE: C

Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign QB Tom Brady

The numbers aren’t particularly impressive for the 43-year-old Brady, but at least he makes far fewer mistakes than Jameis Winston. With Brady under center, the Bucs are contenders right now.

GRADE: B

Carolina Panthers sign QB Teddy Bridgewater

The jury’s still out, but Bridgewater hasn’t moved the needle much with the Carolina offense. His lack of playmaking ability could continue to be problematic.

Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol

  Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol The Miami Hurricanes improved to 3-0 with a big win over rival Florida State, 52-10. The Hurricanes' defense hauled in 3 interceptions and sacked Seminoles quarterbacks 6 times in the win, and quarterback D'Eriq King again led an explosive offense.

The 2019 NFL offseason has been, in a word, whacky! It’s been a long time since we saw so many Pro Bowl players get traded. A Super Bowl MVP has a new We already listed the 10 worst offseason moves of 2019, but one must look at the positive side as well. So many great moves in such little time.

GRADE: C

New England Patriots sign QB Cam Newton

After two injury-plagued seasons, this is as close to his 2015 MVP season as Newton has looked since…2015. Now, he’s still not changing games with his arm, but the Pats are utilizing his unique athletic ability and skillset- and they’re contending at 2-1. This might just work, and it’s damn cheap.

GRADE: A

Indianapolis Colts sign QB Philip Rivers

It’s been a mixed bag for Rivers in Indy, but he’s certainly more capable than Jacoby Brissett. It’s worth noting his numbers have improved each week.

GRADE: B

New York Giants sign CB James Bradberry

The Giants aren’t competitive, but that’s not really on Bradberry. The expensive free-agent addition has surrendered just 10 completions on 21 passes thrown his way. He’s a bright spot.

GRADE: B

NFL considering postseason bubble .
If something like the Titans’ situation happened in the playoffs, with dozens of COVID-19 cases, it’s hard to imagine a sensible way to work around it. Jones and Kaplan also make it seem like a Week 18 is inevitable at this point, with some games being pushed into early January. Once teams have already had their bye weeks it will be nearly impossible to move things around like the NFL did this past week, and one source said it’s a matter of when, not if, there becomes a Week 18.
