Rules For The 2011 League Year For Free Agents, Rookies

,

Tuesday, July 26, 2011, players can return to team facilities. Trades for players can also begin.

.

At 10:00 A.M. ET on Tuesday, teams can sign their 2011 draft picks and undrafted free agent rookies.

.

At 4:01 P.M. ET on Thursday, July 28, teams can cut players

.

Teams will not get a 72 hour grace period to sign their own free agents. The floodgates open Friday for all UFAs.

.

Veteran players signing contracts on or after July 29 will report to their new teams. However, they cannot participate in on-field activities until the 2011 league year begins. They can, however, sit in on meetings.

.

Rookies may participate in on-field activities prior to the start of the league year.

.

Teams like the Colts will have until September 20th to sign a Franchise Tagged player like Peyton Manning to an extension

So did I understand this correctly? I thought the free agents were going to be able to sign with their respective teams on Tuesday (tomorrow) and if nothing could be worked out they would be available on the open market a few days later. Oh well. I am still excited to see who we look at as far as undrafted free agents tomorrow.

Teams don’t have an exclusive 72-hour window to talk with their own free agents this week,

    • id agree with you if this same type of punishment was also coming for Snyder and Kraft, but me and you both know it’s not.  So the nfl doing this, it comes off more as hypocritical than correcting a mistake.     i agree, you are ABSOLUTELY right about Watson, by why doesn’t the nfl have the same focus on their owners?  I get it, they’re his bosses, but does that exclude sexual assault and other stuff these owners have been accused of?  I mean an owner just got caught tampering, trying to illegally gain an advantage, and also the nfl admitted that he mentioned paying his own coach to lose.  What was his punishment, couple of months, 1 million dollars, and a draft pick.  But Calvin Ridley gets suspended for an entire year for gambling $1500?  Wow
    • I'd be shocked if we kept three QBs on the 53
    • On any given team, the 3rd and 4th string guys are fighting for table scraps.      But this year on the Colts, it should be even harder to take care of our 3/4.    Because both our 1st and 2nd string are new to the team and the playbook.   So both Ryan and Foles need every rep they can get.   They won’t be giving up any of theirs.      So Ehlinger and Coan are going to have to make the best of a difficult situation.   It may not be fair, but in carefully scripted practices there's only so much to go around. 
    • I agree losing Hill is a huge loss. I do think they take a tiny step back, but they could also take a step forward.    Not a bad pass catching group at all...    RB - CEH is a good catching RB, not that he needs it though TE - Kelce - don't need to say anything here   WR - MVS - solid and quality X JuJu - likely does better with Mahomes over Big Ben...  Hardman - productive guy, and should take a step forward now that he's no longer in Hill's shadow Moore - rook, but I like his chances.   A lot of teams would like to have that group
    • Using unit totals of  RB - 60 TE - 55 WR - 135   Keeping things simple, and only including the top 4 TEs on the depth chart.   Note, most of the depth chart chatter has Ogletree over Woods at this point, and climbing..... citing Ogletree's hands and route running as being more advanced.    I'd also add that there's a good chance that Granson is again used in more of a TE/HB/slot hybrid role, than traditional TE. That doesn't guarantee anything though. We've heard reports of shovels in camp (Hybrid use) but also heard reports of corner routes.
