Undrafted free agent signings 2015: Teams begin bidding on NFL Draft leftovers

New, comments

The NFL Draft is almost over, but dozens of quality rookies still have yet to be picked up.

The 2015 NFL Draft has finished, but there is plenty of a good talent still available. Now begins the feeding frenzy that is undrafted rookie free agency, a period in which teams and overlooked players will be signing new contracts quickly in the minutes, hours and days after the close of the seventh round.

Becoming an undrafted rookie can actually be a benefit to players. As opposed to automatically relinquishing their rights to one team, players are free to negotiate and go wherever they are wanted. Savvy players may be able to target title contenders, or teams they know have greater needs at their positions.

Several all-time great players have come out of undrafted rookie free agency. Warren Moon, Kurt Warner, Tony Romo, Arian Foster and Antonio Gates are just a few of the names worth mentioning. Though UDFAs are often long shots to even make training camp, NFL teams do take the negotiation process seriously.

We'll be keeping track of all of the players signing new contracts. Be sure to keeping checking back in on this page to see who will become the NFL's unsung future stars.
