Given the current labor situation, free agency has been one big question mark. And it’s not just the “when” but the “how.” That was crystallized yesterday (sorry, I was out covering the charity golf tournament and couldn’t get to writing about it then) when the NFL put out a statement saying the league is looking into “a wide range” of rules for everything once the league year does start, including what players would hit the open market.
“Our goal has at all times been the same — to operate under a negotiated set of procedures that are agreed to by the clubs and the NFLPA,” was the released statement from league spokesman Greg Aiello. “The current litigation has created a significant amount of uncertainty, and we are therefore considering a wide range of alternatives depending on developments.”
That’s why it’s impossible, other than in general terms, to talk much about who the Cards will target. I know people want to know some names — or at least, guesstimate on them — but you can’t. Because you don’t know — and can’t know — who will be available.
