When will cowboys start signing guys that are UDFA?
Anytime after the draft as far as I know....
What's everyone pet cat list looking like?
Chris Polk would be a nice RB to pick up:
A competitive, productive, upright, strong-bodied runner, Polk wears on defenses and is one of the best receiving backs in the country. Has the size, instincts, stamina and versatility to handle a starting workload, but has to earn trust as a pass protector.
What's the deal with Polk at his hip issue??
The UDFA is a one-hour frenzy of signing, began the moment the last pick went off the board. I posted a good truncated story on this on fan zone a few hours ago.
We have $75,000 in bonuses total which go quick. Agents have a few breaths to take the deal or leave it for their client.
All hands and phones on deck at Valley Ranch at the moment. Craziness. .. We'll give you a $5K bonus for your player, but we have another guy on line to give it to, we need to know in about five minutes. That's what's going on right now.
With the new limit on bonuses, plus the 90-man roster extension, lots of players will get no bonus or maybe $500. I guess we try to figure local guys that might take no bonus just to drive a few miles and play for us.
QB: GJ Kinne, Patrick Witt
WR: Marquis Maze, Chris Owusu
TE: DeAngelo Peterson, Brian Linthicum
OL: James Brown, Garth Gerhart, Quentin Saulsberry, Michael Brewster, Ronald Leary
DL: Loni Fangupo, Brett Roy, Nicholas Jean-Baptiste
LB: Donte Paige-Moss, Jerry Franklin
CB: Leonard Johnson, Coryell Judie, Cliff Harris
P: Shawn Powell, Kyle Martens
I don't know of any hip injury unless you mean tight hips which sounds like an evaluation term, not an injury term.
The best site the last few years for UDFA signings around the league:
Nice... thanks for linking that!
Focus O Line and DB from that list
That low bonus limit really sucks; hurts the kids that need the most help.
Wonder who put that in the CBA?
The owners. You can never have enough in laws and friends on the pay roll.
They have a few listed already, but none of the names we've seen floated around here.
Janzen Jackson, S got picked up by the Giants
Micah Pellerin, CB by the Colts
