Its almost midnight, and you know what that means... players who haven't been signed by their own teams become pumpkins!
No, not really. They actually become uber-millionaires.
This is the place to post any news you hear about in the early hours of free agency, just let it fly in the comments. Significant info will get put in the body of the post, and REALLY significant info will get its own place on the front page.
I know a lot of you are out there keeping track of things, so hop into the open thread and give everybody else a hand keeping up with the info!
See you in there!
- Redskins kick things off by out-Davising Al Davis himself. From Adam Schefter: "six-year, $54 million deal that includes $22.5 million guaranteed and $30 million in the first three seasons."-- This was a deal so big it took TWO agents to pull it off. You know that has to make Snyder happy, satisfying two agents at once like that. How fulfilling.
- New Denver head coach Josh McDaniels must have thought running back was his team's most pressing free-agent need. The Broncos have acquired two of them by agreeing to multiyear contracts with Correll Buckhalter (Philadelphia) and J.J. Arrington (Arizona) at the midnight opening of the signing period, FOXSports.com has learned. The deals will become official when both pass physical exams.[Update: looks like they are both being brought in for visits, no completely clear take on the contracts though. My speculation is that Arrington is just visiting, while Buckhalter has a contract offer that is contingent upon passing a physical on his visit. Good luck to both of them!]
