Lost in Nnamdimania? Four signings we weren’t able to get to until now. Here’s a look at a quartet of underrated moves:

The best defensive tackle in free agency is staying in Seattle. There was some speculation that Brandon Mebane would leave, but the Seahawks got it done on Friday. The 26-year-old old has a bright future, and he’s only getting $25 million over the next five years. GLS MOVE RATING: 9/10

The Eagles are getting all of the attention for signing Nnamdi Asomugha and others, but they did lose a pretty good player today. Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley is off to Arizona, where he could fit in nicely in the 3-4 front the Cards use. No terms yet, but if he can stay healthy, Bradley will make the Arizona defense better. GLS MOVE RATING: 7/10

The Raiders have also reportedly signed a player who, if he’s healthy, can be a star. Former Ravens left tackle Jared Gaither would immediately improve Oakland’s line, but he’s had some attitude issues and missed last season due to a back injury. Still, the guy’s a monster and he’s only 25 years old. Unless he’s being drastically overpaid, this is a great signing. In fact, we had Gaither as our top-rated tackle on the free agent market. GLS MOVE RATING: 9/10

The Bengals made a half-decent move! Good for them! Cincy brought in former Cardinals guard Deuce Lutui, who is good enough to start and provide an upgrade in Cincinnati. He’s not exactly known as Mr. Consistent, but he’s still young (28) and he’ll make life slightly easier for Cedric Benson (or whoever). GLS MOVE RATING: 7/10
