    Mostly because I'm tired of people putting *****OFFICIAL****** next to the title to make it more important.

    I cannot wait to see how many contracts are ironed out in the first few hours, or minutes sometimes, as usual yet there's no tampering. I think 4 in the first hour is a good O/U number.

    So if a team announces a signing right away does that pretty much mean they tampered? Just curious. Seems like teams have have to chill for a couple of hours on announcements just for appearances sake.

    As for the "official" designation for threads: Doesn't bother me. It's a good means to limit the number of threads saying the same darn thing. I also get a chuckle out of it because think it tends to be done in part for satirical grandiosity/humor at times.

    Plus, "sanctioned" can also has a double meaning — "punished"; who knows, maybe this thread will end up being severely sanctioned by night's end?

    I would expect a few of these before the 4 pm start to free agency.

    According to Ryan Clark, Spygate is much worse than tampering so don't worry about it.

    Aren't all teams supposed to be under the cap by 4pm? The Cardinals are like 14 mil over.

    Free agent Brandon Lloyd has reportedly assured Patriots players his contract demands in New England will be "reasonable."The players have in turn relayed that message to management and management replied that's so two days ago. :D

    Re: Colston signs 5 year deal

    First reports 5 years close to $40M with $19M guaranteed. The devil is in the details, but that's for a 28 year old guy with 5 knee surgeries including microfracture on both knees so a little hard to correlate. But I'd think it would make Welker worth 4 x $8 with the similar guaranteed money.

    No sense having a FA tracker thread without a FA tracker, so here is one.

    2012 NFL Football Free Agents - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy Advice

    ProFootballWeekly.com - PFW's top 100 free agents

    And if it is a "sanctioned", who was it sanctioned by?:cool: I guess Ian can bless it which would make it then "sanctioned".:D

    Anyway let's have all, EXCEPT PATRIOT, FA signings discussed on this thread so there aren't zillion threads going about other players being signed by other teams.

    Maybe it will become the "official" thread later?

    You thought wrong. Each team has to be at or below the cap after 4PM today.

    I sanctimoniously sanctioned it to be more official than official.

    In terms of a zillion threads that depends on who the Patriots sign. A long snapper for competition is probably a single thread. Brandon Lloyd two or three for you to merge. Red Bryant four or five. Mario Williams dozens spanning weeks if not months.

    Is there an officially sanctioned thread for ONLY Patriots FA signings??

    Are we allowed to post non-FA activity prior to the deadline in this thread?

    so many rules...

    I suppose each signing by the Patriots will merit its own thread. From there half the people here can say it was great move, and the other half can blast it for being awful.

    If Marques Colston is off the Market we should now have a legit shot at Robert Meacham who has the outside Speed we NEED: Big WR too.

    Always liked Meachem. Not sure what kind of $$$ he wants.
