Sorry if this is a redundant thread, I looked and didn't see anything on the topic on the first page.

I keep reading that Rookies can be signed tomorrow, but can't find specifics on whether that means drafted rookies or all rookies, including the undrafted free agents? Anyone know what the deal is?

Also, who are we wanting to see them add from the UDFA pool? I haven't paid much attention this offseason.

The timeline given to Executive Committee and player representatives

Posted by Mike Florio on July 25, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

Everyone has a timeline, so we decided we should get one, too.

We got ours from a pretty good source. It’s the actual hard copy that was presented this morning to the NFLPA* Executive Committee and board of player representatives for consideration.

Titled “Article 11, Transition Rules for the 2011 League Year,” here’s what the document provides.

Today, the NFL will publish a Free Agency List.

On Tuesday, team facilities will open for voluntary training, conditioning, and classroom instruction.

On Tuesday, trades can begin.

At 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, teams may sign drafted rookies, undrafted rookies, and negotiate with (but not sign) their own unrestricted free agents, restricted free agents, exclusive-rights players, and franchise players.

Also, beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, teams may negotiate with, but not sign or give offer sheets to, other team’s unrestricted free agents, restricted free agents, and franchise players.

At 4:01 p.m. ET on Thursday, teams may waive or terminate player contracts.

At 6:00 p.m. ET on Friday, teams may renegotiate existing player contracts.

Also at 6:00 p.m. ET on Friday, teams sign their own unrestricted free agents, restricted free agents, exclusive-rights free agents, and franchise players.

Also at 6:00 p.m. ET on Friday, teams may sign unrestricted free agents from other teams, restricted free agents from other teams, and franchise players from other teams.

No payment of any kind can be made to any player until the CBA has been ratified by the players.

The 2011 league year will begin no later than August 4. When the 2011 league year begins, teams must be under the salary cap. (Specifically, their highest 51 cap numbers must fit under the cap.)

Thus, look for some teams to possibly go over the projected cap this week, and then to find a way to get under the cap before the official start of the league year.

The bold... is what I expect from Tanny, given the way he squeezes every bit of opportunity out of the way rules are written.

I've been saying this since 9 am this morning teams can work backwards and I think we all know Tanny will take advantage

I don't doubt that your correct. I'm just getting myself caught up. :D

Enough with this already. What exactly do you guys think we can accomplish by signing then cutting as opposed to cutting then signing? If anything the grace period levels the playing field for GMs who aren't as smart and prepared to move quickly on multiple fronts as we'd all like to hope Tannenbaum is.

I don't think we necessarily gain anything, but I can see Tanny grabbing up players and holding onto our cuts for as long as he is allowed to... before releasing them, if for no other reason to keep other teams from having their whole squad assembled until after we cut guys. Just seems like something he'd do. I'm not advocating it one way or the other.

That seems like something everybody would do. People make like Tannenbaum has these insane superpowers where every fluctuation of the price of tea in China turns into some arbitrage opportunity that he among all general managers is uniquely able to exploit.

I didn't make it out that he's the only one who could figure out how to exploit it, just that given what we've seen from him as GM he would exploit it.

It's not that he has superpowers, but let's call him what he is. He's an accountant with balls. He seems more willing to make the big move than most other GM's out there. The only real comparable ballsy guy is Snyder, but where Tanny has him beat is he's literally an accountant and can create things that seemingly aren't there where numbers are concerned. Snyder is a moron who throws piles of money around. Very little creativity. The best example being Haynesworth.

I have wished at times that the Jets had more of a "football guy" as a GM but right now I'm very happy to have who we have. Tanny lives for this.

John Clayton reports that NFL teams were granted the right to sign undrafted players Monday night. So dealings are underway.

I want Jeff Maehl. At worst he is training camp fodder at best he can be a slot WR in the NFL. Dude is quick as hell, he had a poor 40 time at the combine (4.62) but set a combine record at the three cone drill (6.42) was 1st at the 60 yard shuttle (10.87) and 2nd at the 20 yard shuttle (3.94). He's got a good vertical for a short guy at 33 inches and his hands are ridiculous. Through four years of watching him in college I don't think I ever remember him dropping a ball.

A quick google search seems to suggest he's not a WR, but a TE (or according to NFL Draft Scout, a FB).

Only thing I can tell you, it would seem he's very gritty.

Upon further looking, it's really f'n confusing because it appears they may have had two players with the same name, considering I keep finding completely different sh*t. WTF?

2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Wayne Daniels, DE, TCU

On TCU it usually takes some time for a defensive player to work his way into the starting lineup. That was the case with defensive end Wayne Daniels. Daniels was one of a few true freshman to see action in 2006, but his playing time was limited. The following year the 6-2, 250 pound Kilgore, Texas native redshirted. In 2008 Daniels was once again stuck behind some talented players on the depth chart and only tallied 11 tackles.

In 2009 Daniels finally stepped into a starting role at the defensive end spot and ranked second on the team with 5.5 sacks behind only Jerry Hughes. Daniels added 9.0 tackles-for-loss and 50 tackles. As a result Daniels earned Second-Team All-Mountain West Conference accolades. With Hughes off in the NFL, 2010 was supposed to be Daniels year. Early on it appeared to be the case as Daniels tallied 5.5 sacks in the four early season games, but ended his senior campaign with just one more sack. His 6.5 sacks still led the team and it was often Daniels who garnered most of the attention from the opposing offensive line.

Daniels will likely move to the outside linebacker position in the NFL. Ideally that would be as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but he could be an end in a 4-3 as a pass rushing specialist. The fact that he is generally not considered strong enough to be an end or fast enough to be a linebacker is hurting Daniels' draft stock and he will likely be a late round selection.

@NFLDraftInsider is putting out a lot of updates

i salute his effort but question some of his accuracy. Herzlich tweeted he's not a raven. let's hope the Wayne Daniels signing is real cause that's not a bad long shot OLB convert. very raw but who isn't at 3-4 OLB
