NFL – Sign Em Up

by on July 29, 2008 updated July 29, 2008

 Things are heating up in the negotiation room as NFL teams get their draft picks on board and clean their rosters for training camp.

 Kansas City Chiefs – Signed Glenn Dorsey, their #1 pick, DL lineman from LSU

Oakland Raiders – Released LaMont Jordan after drafting Darren McFadden.

Arizona Cardinals – Signed #1 pick Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Atlanta Falcons – Signed Sam Baker, tackle from USC, their #1 pick

 Carolina Panthers – Signed Jonathan Stewart and Jeff Otah, both #1 choices.

 The trend nowadays is to get your picks signed and in camp. Too much investment is lost on both sides with long holdouts. A year lost in the NFL could be 20% of a players productive career. Gone are the days when both sides dug in heir heels and played possum. It’s all about the Benjamins.
