Just wondering, can we sign our own free agents before the free agency signing period begins on Feb 27th??

I know we can't sign another teams free agent like Chris Canty from Dallas, but can we sign our own guys like McFadden, before then??

I believe so. I think we can sign our own people any time we'd like. The Rooney's just have a policy about doing it during the season.

If your next question is why haven't we signed McFadden yet, then I have no idea..., but I'm hopeful.

Today is the first day teams can release players. At anytime we can resign our own players.

OK, thanks. I was just confused because I was reading a post on Walter football where they said the Saints would cost themselves a draft pick by signing Vilma. I'm no expert in the NFLPA collective bargaining agreement. :noidea:

Vilma is probably a better fit for the Saints at weakside linebacker. Unfortunately, they can't re-sign him until the free-agency period begins, unless they want to cough up a first-round pick. http://www.walterfootball.com/freeagents2009ILB.php
