good on the Giants! You would think this kind of info would make it very awkward for other teams tomorrow if players decide to show up before the Judge makes her decision.

Giants let players work out at facility

According to JLC the NFLPA is telling Agents that Free Agency is open and they should start contacting teams now. Another twist.

Teams aren't responding to agents' calls. I think that could change tomorrow night

Congratulations owners. Not only did you fumble in the court of public opinion while in the red zone but the players just took that fumble all the way to the house.

Hopefully in Elba. Man that joke would have been funnier if you asked me where Snyder was but it still works.

If I'm a GM right now I'd tell my owner to let free agency happen. I'm sure a lot of teams would not want to go into the draft without free agency. The owners can have their appeal after the draft.

If I'm a GM right now I'm making gentlemen's agreements on the down-low or at least letting the free agents that I like know that I am very ($$$) interested.

Maybe it's not as much a risk now but apparently the league was going to go HARD after teams that did under the table deals during the lockout, and maybe with the Lockout lifted it gives them a little more leeway. However it's still a risk.

Re: Judge grants motion, lifts lockout; owners' appeal coming

I had not thought much about this, but the undrafted college players could also file a suit against the NFL owners as well, if the lockout continues to long after the draft. . This whole anti-trust route some the players are taking in court could gain some traction and has to be scaring the owners a bit. It kind of smells rotten to me that some college players will drafted on Thursday and the others will be told to pound sand. PLus throw in all of the veteran unrestricted Free agent NFL players and that is a sh*tload of players. The owners need to be careful not expose themselves in attempt to grab more money. Reward to risk is starting to run high.

Re: Judge grants motion, lifts lockout; owners' appeal coming

One more question for any and everyone: Is it possible that the NFL goes to Congress and somehow circumvents the judicial branch?

Well it seem that there is still uncertainty in regards to free agency. I still can't believe that teams are passing up the opportunity to temporarily have free agency.

Are they still under 2010 rules or can they pick up any free agent? Would tenders and franchise tags still apply? These things have to be sorted out before they can actually start the league year...
