No transactions allowed, but teams can talk to their players during extension

Roger Goodell

It’s about to get real quiet.

During the league’s seven day extension on CBA talks, there will be no player transactions.  Teams aren’t allowed to talk to prospective free agents or re-sign any of their own players.

With that said, the NFL confirmed that teams can speak with the agents of their own players.   So progress can be made over the next week towards re-signing players even if nothing can be announced.   (While that’s a nice bonus, we imagine most deals that were going to be completed before free agency were completed by Thursday night.)

Add it all up, and we’re headed for a very quiet week of NFL news.

Expect  ’round-the-clock updates on JaMarcus Russell’s home foreclosure.

    200 large? JaMarcus might have to sell his watch to make payment.

    Then it’s a good thing the far superior game of baseball is starting up. Or else I wouldn’t know what to do all day at the office.

    Well, the speculation begins on which one will get tampering charges leveled against them. Just carry on (business as usual) instead of trying to entrap someone.

    I guess when you’re a bengals fan, any season is better than football.

    At least we have the example of JaMarcus Russell to reassure us that all the revenue generated is being spent in a responsible manner.

    Bengalsown,

    If baseball is so much better than football why do you call yourself “bengalsown” and not “redsown”?

    Remember the year Dan Snyder signed Haynesworth at 10 minutes after the free agency period opened. He had to have been negotiating ahead of time. If there is an advantage to gain, I expect some agents to be talking dollars to some owners and there will be a lot of signings on the first day of free agency.

    Quiet week? Time to kick the draft coverage up a notch.
