When do we get to start signing our own guys?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Assuming the vote goes through tomorrow, at what point can we start signing guys like Harper, Nicks, etc? Will it be tomorrow or closer to Saturaday?...

Crap, I figured we would get a few days to sign our guys before FA started, and FA is reported to start Saturday if everything goes as planned. This is killing me.

From what little I read they were pretty humble. Mainly watching that corner in which name I wont try to spell.

No need to at all. They'll spend 10 mill a season and he can only take out one offensive weapon. Drew has about 4 or 5 weapons on every play.

But it would be really bad news for Atlanta, since they basically only have Roddy White.

AGREED Oakland couldn't win with him.



Still, I don't want him in the division.

I'd be much more worried about Tampa adding 3 or 4 high quality free-agents at positions of need with the same money required to sign N.A.
