    The NFL states that free agency opens at Friday, 12:01am EST.
    Its thursday
    HOW THE **** DID THIS HAPPEN???

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3936198
    The Miami Dolphins reached an agreement with former New York Giants and Oakland Raiders safety Gibril Wilson on Thursday. Terms weren't available, but according to a source, he agreed to a five-year deal.

    How are you even allowed to negotiate with other teams, let alone agree to contracts before free agency has even begun? How is this FAIR?!?!?!?

    :icon_twisted::icon_twisted::icon_twisted::icon_twisted::icon_twisted::icon_twisted:

    Look I'm not going uber insane on losing out on Wilson but serious how the hell did this happen and how is this not being prosecuted?

    i'm guessing 'cause los raiders already released him and that made him just another dude look'in for work. i think when a team releases you they give up their rights.
    i'm totally guess'in though, so someone who actually knows will hopefully chime on in...

    Because he was released
    We did the same thing last year with Cyclops

    When a player is released, he is allowed to sign when ever he wants. FA is for people whose deals expired
