Mr. Scot

Shadow Free Agency

33 posts in this topic

Thought of it, but "the team is in contact with free agent X" doesnt really scream 'breaking news' to me. Especially not seeing that we can't sign anyone till 4pm Tuesday.

That said, I'll probably still watch the wires for news (just for the heck of it).

Notsomuch that, but I wonder if there will be early agreements, or will there be more bidding wars in the 3 day window until Tuesday's Happy Hour vigil.

No precedents available by which to set expectations.

Who knows what'll happen?

(I guess we will, in about 6 or 7 minutes) :unsure:

Yea, Dunta could sign at any time though, because he was released as opposed to his contract running out.

Some CB news: Mike Jenkins is getting some interest early.from other teams.

Also, KC signing Robinson won't stop them from pursuing Sean Smith.

There was some talk about the NFL televising a free agent signing event, like they do in college. If they do, it would get better ratings than any first round, NBA playoff game.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
