After all the waiting and discussion, there are only a few hours remaining until teams can actually start signing free agents to contracts (technically, that is when they can start negotiating, but we all know that deals are often worked out under the table well before then). We all have our own ideas of what we would like to see happen, just like we have certain draft prospects we prefer. But free agency is a much more fluid and unpredictable thing. Teams can go big or go home in free agency, depending on things like team needs, cap space, and what they are looking forward to in the draft. As we saw last year in the Nmadi Asomugha debacle, even the teams themselves aren't always sure what is really happening.
