On The Verge – NFL Free-Agency

As it appears now, a new CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) is on the verge of happening – thus, ending the over 100 day NFL lockout. While, I hate to ‘jump the gun’ on hopes that an agreement could happen within the next 8 days or sooner – I am too excited at the though of football to control myself. Its no secret that Im an NFL addict and love following the game, statistics, transactions, and of course the Dallas Cowboys. So, with a deal likely to happen sooner rather than later, the next big topic will be Free-Agency. It surely will be a rapid process this year, and while the actual process is still under debate until a CBA is reached – Im basing this post on the idea that 4 years of services or more makes you a UFA (Unrestricted Free Agent). Here are some thoughts, ideas, and predictions on what may happen when the NFL year begins and player movement starts.
