re-building a team is a process. at the end of this year we have too many other holes to fill. we already have one rookie at cb and it wouldn't make any sense to trade an experienced pro-bowl corner who we have on a cheap contract for another year just to try and "get something for him" while we can. players leave via fa, it happens. you can't trade away every good player a year before their contract is up. shaub was the exception, not the rule. the most likely scenario (assuming we don't sign him to a long term contract) is to draft a corner and let him learn for a season (just like deangelo did when he got drafted) then let him leave as a fa.

deangelo will be traded. you don't let a premier player leave your team without receiving some sort of compensation. i don't know whether or not he will be traded this offseason. i would expect him to be traded after next season, he will be tagged, and we will get a 1st and 3rd for him.

here's the deal, normally you'd be correct. but when a player opt's out of a remaining part of their contract, you can't tag them as a franchise player. so if deangelo voids the 2009 season thats currently on his contract, he's gone. don't you remember why we couldn't franchise patrick kerney?

they can still be franchised. we didn't franchise kerney because he was coming off of an injury, so we would've had to give him compensation of the top 5 de's in the league, of which he is not worth.

while i completely agree that kerney wasn't worth franchising, you are wrong. if a player cannot be franchised if they've voided any part of their contract. do some research my man.

more then likely yes, after all crumpler and bp are not seeing eye to eye.

alge really doesn't have a future here anyway. we would have been better off keeping eric beverly if the only purpose of a te is to block in the running game and catch an ocassional short pass.

hall and crumpler can both head on out the door. both looked a lot better in 05, crumpler had a few big games last year and otherwise was miserable, and he hasn't had any big games this year. hall just sucks against any real #1 receiver other than steve smith.

hall ain't even fared that well against smith recently either. i seem to remember a stick, it was shi tty on one end,..guess who got that end?

teams can officially designate franchise and transition players between feb 8, 2006 and feb 22, 2006.

march 1 is the deadline for clubs to submit qualifying offers to their rfas whose contracts have expired and to whom they desire to retain a right of first refusal/draft compensation.

free agency officially begins on march 2. for rfas, the period officially ends on april 20. the deadline for old clubs to exercise the right of first refusal to rfas is april 27. for ufas (including franchise players and transition players), who have been given a tender offer from their prior team, the period officially ends on july 22 or the first day of training camp -- whichever is later.

under the old cba, a team had until march 17 to work out a long term deal with its franchise player. if the team signed the franchise player between march 18 and july 14, the tag would have stayed with that player for the length of his contract, which meant that the team could not name another franchise payer until that player's contract was terminated. the updated cba pushed that date back until july 22, the same as the free agency deadline. however, there remains a caveat: the club may not sign the tagged player to a long-term contract after july 14. that is, the team has until july 14 to sign the tagged player to a long-term contract; afterwards the player may sign only a one-year contract with his prior team, and the contract may not be extended until after the last regular season game.

a prior team has until june 1 to tender an ufa or a rfa a qualifying offer (worth at least 110% of the salary of the final year of the contract with the prior team). in the case of ufas, if such an offer is made, the player has until july 22 to sign with a different club. if he doesn't, then the only team that the player can sign with after july 22, is the prior club. in the case of rfas, if such a june 1 tender is made, the player can only sign with the the prior club. if no june 1 tender is made for a rfa (or the tender is rescinded by the prior club before july 22), then the player becomes an ufa. in the case of both ufas and rfas, if the player does not sign with the prior team by the first tuesday following week 10 of the regular nfl season, then the player shall be prohibited from playing in the nfl for the remainder of that season.

deadline for old clubs to withdraw an original qualifying offer to a rfa and still retain exclusive negotiating rights by substituting tender of 110% of previous year s salary is june 15.

wow! that's a lot to digest! if all of this still seems confusing, relax. we have a series of faqs that may better help you understand how free agency works in the nfl.

kerney opted out on mar. 2nd
