I just wanted to point out the obvious. There's going to be a smorgasbord of FAs this year. This low of a cap must be really beginning to hamstring teams.

Adrian Wilson was cut, Winston, Aaron Ross, both Landrys, John Abraham, etc.

It's being said that James Harrison will be cut soon too.

With as many veteran DBs out there it might help us in re-signing Quin

Money isn't growing on trees.
The stupid agents are going to try to push to be the first ones to get what they can.
Let the desperate teams overpay.

Yep, but his agent tweeted a while ago saying nothing's getting done and will listen to 32 teams in a few hours

I must say, this new "legal tampering" window is ridiculous. Why even bother changing it from what it was? Tampering or not, it seemed just fine before this bullbutter

Default Re: 2013 NFL Free Agent Tracker

We might be entering an era of NFL where the outrageous contracts for even the best free agent candidates come to a screeching halt.

Is this the beginning of RESTRAINT in terms of spending?

At some point, even the few teams that right now have gobs of cap space are going to eat up that cap space and find themselves in our position within a few seasons. Everyone will eventually be forced to restrain from spending.

This is going to be very interesting. Plus, IIRC, from what dutchrudder has been saying, this is the first year that teams have a MINIMUM threshold they have to meet in terms of cap spending. You can't just roll over savings, you now have to pay a certain amount to players--a certain overall percentage.

So a lot of these free agents might not fit anywhere BUT those less-talented cellar dwellers who are required to spend a minimum amount to meet the new rules.

yeah you may remember me mentioning right after the new CBA was sign that huge contracts for FAs were on way out after this off season. We may have a team or two that dumps players after a SB run but for the most part NFL has put brakes on ridiculous contracts.

I think they want a National signing day event type thing. In the past there were a bunch of immediate announcements (teams had to "tamper" if your announcement is one min after midnight) so this is their solution. A 3 day Free Agent Kabuki dance.

Yeah, but the last minute memo with restrictions the NFL sent out had teams thumbin their butt wondering what they could or couldn't do. I don't think it panned out the way they wanted it
