Teams can sign Undrafted Free Agents Tonight

Report: Teams can sign undrafted players now
Posted by Mike Florio on July 25, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT


After a day of conflicting timelines (thanks to some reports that were in conflict with reality), there’s a new conflict in the league’s timeline, thanks to the league.

John Clayton of ESPN reports that teams have received the ability to sign undrafted free agents on Monday night.

At some point on Monday afternoon, the league decided to permit the transactions, beginning tonight at 6:00 p.m. ET.

Previously, negotiations were permitted with undrafted players tonight, but no deals could be signed until Tuesday.

Got my fingers crossed for Mark Herzlich.

Edit: Herz is rumored to have signed with the Ravens.

Edit #2: Herz is disputing that rumor. We still have a chance.

UPDATED: Tom Kowalski of Mlive.com tells us that, per multiple source, teams cannot sign undrafted players tonight. Too bad Kowalski doesn’t work for ESPN, or it would be the latest episode of the recent ESPN-on-ESPN crime spree.

SECOND UPDATE: Mark Maske of the Washington Post confirms Kowalski, citing NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. So, basically, the Professor was a little nutty on this one. Teams can’t sign undrafted rookies yet. But they can, as the Professor would say, nego-see-ate with them.
