Well I could lie...but then I might as well be on another board

Meanwhile, Cam's brother Cecil (a Center) drafted by Hartford (Glanville)

Re: Which Undrafted Free Agents should we try to sign?

UFL can claim rights to FA's (some team had Jamarcus on their "roster") but by no means is anyone drafted by the UFL bound to participate in the league. I think this year they've made it more difficult to jump straight to the NFL as well.

I'd advise against these guys going due to possibility of getting picked up by NFL and uncertainty that they'll actually get paid with the UFL.

Watching a special on Mark Herzlich on NFL Network. Pretty remarkable. I hope we sign him.

The great story aside, this guy is a flat out beast. He should be at the seriously at top of our list, he can flat out play with a huge motor. We will have a hole ILB hopefully when he gets offered by half the league, he will take that into consideration.

Noel Devine is worth a peak at RB.

Re: Which Undrafted Free Agents should we try to sign?

I'm torn, I root for the players to win and the Lockout is lifted and players are practicing and teams are trading

Or I root for the owners who I think has a good argument in regards to the players not wanting to give and take in the talks and gave early to decertify so they could have "leverage" in the talks which is illegal.

What happens if the 8th Circuit decides the owners have an argument and up holds the lockout? Leverage given back to the owners and what? The "non-union" has to negotiate or does the court say "because we deem it illegal the union cannot decertify"? And the court tells the union to get back to negotiations?

Basically the owners lockedout because they feel the players decertified illegally, so what happens if the court agrees? Is the union put back in place by law and what about negotiations?

^ sorry again didn't mean to derail the thread but all I keep hearing is "I hope the 8th Circuit lifts the lockout." which essentially means the owners are going to have to give the players what they want.

Let's stay on topic we've got numerous threads covering the lockout.

Re: Which Undrafted Free Agents should we try to sign?

Yes sorry again. I was in the moment reading what other had said and after I entered the statement I realized I screwed up.

Back on track....

Did anyone see the NFL Network interview on the LB who was not drafted... I think it was Mark Herzlich - MLB- Boston College? It was a nice interview about him having a great season, then he finds out he has cancer, one of his friends/teamates usually leaves town every year and when he called he informed him that he would be staying at the school and going through chemo. His friend said he'd stay with him and make sure he drove him to every chemo meeting. The kid does seem kinda like a nice level headed kid. I'd have to imaging he lost some size due to the chemo but if he could bulk a little bit more up he might be a steal.

But.... can't the players if offered a job by the NFL leave for the NFL or do they have to wait till their season is over with the UFL? and on that note aren't the two seasons at different times?

Once they sign a contract with the UFL, they are comitted for the season (which ends in late November). So you'll probably see guys like Herzlich wait until the last possible minute to decide whether to sign with the UFL team that drafted them

Re: Which Undrafted Free Agents should we try to sign?

SS, do you know what is holding teams back on this guy, Herzlich? Still having treatments? Not all the way back? He was a bad man before all this happened. I would love to bring him in if there is...any chance of return to former...form
