Maybe thats what happened. I remember something from last year players who were mentioned to be playing for a UFL team all of a sudden were not and were assigned to an NFL team.

The CFL is different though right. Players can leave at any time?

I know no more than anyone else here. I guess teams are nervous about the cancer

Players under a CFL contract have a 6 week window (first 6 weeks of the calendar year usually) to sign with an NFL team. After that, they can't until the following year.

That's why you see such a run on CFL players signed around late January/early February

Nope. A contract is a contract. You sign a contract, you play for that team, unless that team deigns to set you free.

The Rock knows all......

If not for Herzlich is there speculation of what round he could have gone? His combine stuff didnt seem all that impressive.

I was thinking about Noel Devine. I feel like last year we would have wanted him, but since hes so small and cant really block he doesnt really make sense this year since we have no proven blocking back on a team with still a lot of questions at center guard and right tackle.

Herzlich could make it on the practice squad and develop into a great vet if he can stay healthy. He is a high reward pick up

Yeah I was surprised him, Devlin, and Herzlich (though I knew less about him I saw a lot of people projecting him as a 6th or 7th rounder) not getting picked up. I guess it was due to Devine's last season after coming back from the injury.


How did Fannin not get drafted by the Raiders in the 3rd round since he's BIG and FAST?

none of these guys declared for any sort of UFL draft therefore they are NOT locked into playing in the UFL

the draft on the UFL is more like a "rights to the player" draft should he decide to play in the league

Rookie free agents fit for the Redskins… « Riggo's Rag | A Washington Redskins Blog

I think we should keep an eye on Cooper if his ACL has fully healed could be a nice pick up.

Or a buyout. By the way I'd like to reinforce the idea that the team should really go after Scott Tolzien.

Tolzien's horrendous. Waste of a signing if you ask me.

For an UFDA? I assume you mean at the cost of signing Potts or Devlin and personally Tolzien is more attractive then the screener and the guy riding Flacco's coat tails.
