League offseason season kickoff

Post  Big_Pete on Fri Apr 29, 2011 12:24 am

Tomorrow we will find out about the league returning to normal operations.

more importanly it is likely that from sometime next week we will be able to sign and trade players.

The parameters are being finalised, but it looks likely that we will be playing under the 2010 rules.

Ie there will be no limit or floor on how much a team spends on players

and that players will require 6 accrued seasons to be eligible for free agency.

Normally we don't see much movement with RFAs, but it could be a little different this year.

Teams haven't been able to trade players during the draft and any pick compensation wouldn't happen until next year.

I could see three of the Giants RFAs attrecting attention from other teams - Steve Smith, Ahmad Bradshaw and Barry Cofield.
