Not happening. Until the CBA is signed there wont be any big player signings where actual money is spent.

So until the CBA is signed, don't gets your hopes up.

Love,

not a rule, not all teams will do, but ours will and JR has said publicly no new contracts until CBA is signed.

I thought there was no free agency until the CBA was sorted? Or if that's not the case you have to have had 6 years service to hit it, otherwise you are restricted?

From what I can see, is that players have to have had 6 years in the NFL before they become unrestricted (or until the CBA is signed which would dictate the new terms).

Due to this every single free agent we have is restricted, other than Thomas Davis.

Most teams will have the luxury of waiting but unfortunately some of the bigger market teams may end up snagging the top tier available talent for cheap as players who normally hold lots of negotiation advantage get nervous about getting muddled in the mix immediately following the CBA signing.

Has JR even said he would spend money to make this team better? I just dont see him spending much maybe 2-3 mid priced FA's at most

The way I understand it is this:

Free Agency doesn't open until the first week of March: So you cannot sign players until then, because their previous contract doesn't expire until then. (Remember all the midnight signings of previous years.)

The current CBA expires on or about the same date.

Therefore, there is no labor agreement in place between the union and the owners at the time the signings would normally take place. You would have a hard time "locking out" players you currently have under contract, while at the same time signing new players.
