Re: Dominique Barber signed
Draft picks usually start signing several weeks before camp, with about half of them coming the week before camp. Remember that the month or so between the end of mini-camps and the beginning of training camp is the only period of the year during which many NFL people can take a vacation. As soon as the season ended everyone was preparing for free agency, the draft, then mini-camps. I wouldn't have been surprised after signing Colvin if we hadn't heard anything from Rick Smith for a couple of weeks.
