when does the FA Period start?

I have been a little preoccupied rooting the Princeton Community Lady Tigers on to state

It's suppose to start tomorrow at 4 but some teams have been illegally signing players to deals all weekend.

I agree 100% with you yesterday and today was for discussing the possibility of joining your team another team etc but not for you are confirmed going to that team this is stupid and why are the colts doing nothing here they need all the help they can get here.

Yeah, that's not true.  The legal tampering window allows a player and team to reach an agreement.  They simply cannot sign and execute the contract until Tuesday at 4pm.  The exact terms can already be worked out though.  The difference this year is that the terms of contracts (years, total dollar value, guaranteed money etc) are being released prior to the official signing. 

 

Now, if any player has already signed a contract, then that would be a violation.  However, agreeing to terms is not a violation.

    • Patience.  We might very well see Eason taking snaps toward the end of the season.  Right now JB is under a large contract and is the better backup option...to start a game.....in case Iron Man misses one.  So JB needs some reps now to be fresh enough able to come into a game or start.   I don't expect Eason to be activated on a game day until maybe mid-season.   Towards the end of the season, we'll begin to see more thought towards the future and Eason might get some work.
    • Well now, that was a massacre. After the Chargers game many predicted the Ravens to win. Instead we were shown a one sided dismantling of the NFL's top defense and and a well oiled Chiefs squad on both sides that toyed with Baltimore like a cat on a half-dead mouse. Yes it is early and the Chiefs have a tough schedule but if last night was the real Chiefs then perhaps the Miami Dolphins may have to step side and make room for two undefeated teams.   
    • I'm not a doctor BUT I do work in healthcare and take care of patients like this.  It really depends on the severity of the injury, where it is located, what nerve(s) are affected, and how long it went before getting the fasciotomy.  There is no "It will take this many weeks" because all situations are different.  It appears he had surgery less than 24 hours after the injury, which is excellent.  This means it didn't go the typical days to a week or two that I'm used to seeing with some unrecoverable damage.  His age and fitness and nutrition level will probably help him as well.  I'm not sure how big the area was that was affected, but if it was his calf then that would be better than say the lower thigh near the knee.  The calf is a bigger meaty muscle and could absorb some swelling without affecting the nerves too much as compared to an area that doesn't have much "meat" on it like the knee.  But IDK where it was.  The main thing is getting the surgery as quickly as possible and relieving the pressure on the nerves and muscle tissue so that the compression doesn't further damage those tissues.  It appears he accomplished that.  Antibiotics are a must because of the high-risk for infection with this kind of surgery.  It CAN be a major complication.  Another major problem could be rhabdomyolysis which can injure the kidneys so they will need to monitor his blood.  Also, his tissue may not heal correctly meaning there could be severe scarring.  We will have to see on those things.   What happens from here is anybody's guess, but I would think if everything goes just right he could start light movements in about 2-3 weeks, with full bore contact in about 10-12 weeks.  Again, IF things go just right.  But he aint comin back by Week 8 IMHO.  Then again, I'm not a doctor.
    • Mo should keep starting and burton should earn his keep. If he shows to be better let him start but I don’t want Mo to be benched for him coming off injury and he hasn’t shown nothing up to this point. Mo is the better blocker and is competent as a pass catcher. Make trey earn his keep just don’t give it to him 
    • I'm going to respectfully disagree, unless you're saying that's your opinion.  But I don't think it's what the coaches would do.   You saw last season when Jacoby looked horrible, we had nothing to lose in that last game against the Jags.  Yet they wouldn't put Kelly in.   I'm one of those who wants to be proven otherwise, but I'm not sure Eason is better than Kelly.  If we're basing it on their college careers (which is all we know about Eason at this point), then Kelly is the better QB.  He may not have the measurables, but he's more mobile.
