NFL Free Agency Rules Coming Into Focus

The latest, and I mean latest, timeline for what can happen when in the crazy world of the Post-Lockout NFL has been released.  Surely it will change, but it makes for fun writing today.  Here is it, straight off of my TV Screen and NFL Network:

  • Tuesday, July 26 - Team Voluntary Conditioning
  • Tuesday, July 26, 10:00AM et - Drafted and Undrafted Rookies can sign
  • Thursday, July 28 - Players can be cut or waived by their teams
  • Friday, July 29, 6:00PM et - Free Agency Opens
  • Sunday, July 31 - Jets and Texans begin Training Camp

My assumption would be that teams can begin talking to free agents immediately(Tuesday), but cannot make any signings or trades until Friday at 6:00PM et.

More to come!
