NFL Free Agency Rules: Cleveland Browns Getting Ready

Time for the latest and greatest NFL Free Agency timeline as it appears more and more likely that the 130 day-old lockout is about to come to an end. This is fresh from my TV screen and NFL Network:

  • Tuesday, July 26 - Team Voluntary Conditioning
  • Tuesday, July 26, 10:00AM et - Drafted and Undrafted Rookies can sign
  • Thursday, July 28 - Players can be cut or waived by their teams
  • Friday, July 29 - Training Camps for 30 teams (including Browns) can start
  • Friday, July 29, 6:00PM et - Free Agency Opens
  • Sunday, July 31 - Jets and Texans begin Training Camp
While not officially, official, this seems to be the timeframe that everyone is pointing towards. Now the question will become who - if anyone - will the Cleveland Browns target once the doors open and teams can begin to sign free agents. While no signings can happen until Friday, it is assumed that teams and agents can begin to talk on Tuesday.
