Somebody help me out. I thought Free Agency doesn't open until tomorrow at midnight, but today this comes across the wire:
"Word around the league" is that the Jets have already negotiated a deal for free agent Alan Faneca that would guarantee him about $20 million.
Isn't that against the rules or tampering?
I know this news makes some of you happy, but it seems like a lot of guys are signed already.
I thought it was just guys who were released and they have a different set of rules.
Can somebody straighten me out here?
Is it a case of just not being able to sign contracts? If so, why haven't we heard about all the free agents visiting teams?
