NFLPA Telling Free Agents To Start Negotiating With Teams

Could free agency actually start this week?

The NFLPA certainly thinks it's a possibility.

NFLPA attorney Mark Levin sent a letter to all NFL players indicating that they believe the negotiation period has begun.

In a letter today to all NFL players, NFLPA attorney Mark Levin tells current free agents to have their agents immediately start contacting teams to shop their services. "unless and until that order is stayed, the clubs are NOT allowed to refuse to negotiate with you."

The NFL is hoping Judge Susan Nelson opts to keep the lockout in place, a ruling which could come down on Wednesday. If she doesn't, and the lockout remains lifted, then there could be some legs to this idea that free agency is starting immediately.

It seems that not many people are quite sure what's going on. The league is essentially operating as if the lockout is still in place until they hear from Judge Nelson. The NFLPA is operating as if the lockout has been lifted. It's a bizarre day to say the least.
