Fast and furious: The NFL is in for the ride of its life as the real fun begins in earnest
 
In a normal NFL offseason, teams have five months to stock their rosters for training camp.

This year, they'll have less than five days.

Welcome to Crazy Town, a bazaar of the bizarre.

It's two days before players are scheduled to report to training camp, and the New Orleans Saints still have nearly half of their roster unsigned.

The NFL offseason officially became the off-the-charts season when players signed off Monday on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. In the click of pen, the business of football accelerated from zero to ludicrous speed.

The next few days will be the most hectic in NFL history, and an unprecedented number of transactions will take place. Contracts for 564 free agents, 254 draft picks and at least that many undrafted rookies must be negotiated, agreed to and signed. You'll need a scoreboard to keep track of all the comings and goings.
