Wonder about Reiter.The short answer to why Rams are dragging their feet on Reiter?
Because they think that they already have a better and more balanced run/pass option for Center on their current roster.
That’s it. Hope they’re right.
When does the signing period end so that player signing doesn’t affect comp picks?
April 27 if I am reading it right.
“In order for a player to eventually qualify as a compensatory pick, they must be signed by a new team by April 27. The player must also rank highly enough among their peers to be qualified.”
A lot of yrs after the initial phase, then you get a few bargains in a 2nd phase. We saw all that....but then teams tend to wait and see what positions are still a need post draft. Then this will pick up again.The lowered cap has a lot to do with so many quality players still out there. Teams are holding off and these guys are clinging to their pride. Just my .02.
I dont think so. The decreased cap just demands a little creativity, but seeing the money some of these guys are getting? Nah... I think it's like everything else, the Rams set the precedent and the league follows. May as well wait to sign after the comp pick calculation expires. No point in giving away a pick because you cant wait 2 weeks to sign a guy.The lowered cap has a lot to do with so many quality players still out there.
