Another record falls

As of Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. ET, teams could talk to free agents, but not sign them.  As of Friday at 6:00 p.m. ET, the signings can begin.

This four-day launch to free agency has created an avalanche of interest in the NFL, with each day more intense than the one before it.

On Tuesday, the PFT single-day traffic record fell, with 3.889 million page views.  On Wednesday, the rubber band was stretched to 4.611 million.

On Thursday, the water crested at 5.288 million, with a staggering 838,000-plus unique visitors.

(The numbers seem even more impressive when reciting them like Dr. Emmett Brown realizing the specific amount of electricity necessary to activate a flux capacitor.)

Thanks to our NBC family for giving us the server space to handle the crush of traffic.  Here’s hoping that the hamsters have some kick left for Friday.

    Hope so, because it’s going to be broken again tomorrow.

    The last three days have been a lot of fun. Best thing is that camp begins with free agency and preseason a week or maybe two weeks after… none of the boring June stuff when nothing happens

    I account for about 567 of those views everyday. I’m still all giddy like a lil girl that I’m reading real football news.

    @zibikbeer …

    I’m giddy like a lil girl, too, but it’s not as funny coming from me 😉
