    Owners,

    We are now in Stage-7, the last and final stage before the 2013 NFL Draft. The FA negotiation rounds have ended and scouting is the only action that remains. To that effect, FA is now closed until after the NFL Draft.

    Please note that the league will complete a single round FA draft that will commence after the NFL Draft, details forthcoming.

    Kind of sucks there isn't a free agency recap screen or at least a league transactions. If I want to see who got the guys I didn't you have to hunt thru the other rosters.

    If we all update our team management thread this shouldn't be a problem. I plan on updating mine again tomorrow.

    Well, the Patriots did invite the said LB'er for a visit. The front office didn't have much hope in landing him. After showing him around a bit, he still didn't seem sold. Coach Cordell then had the LB'er visit him in his office the morning of his departure. Coach Cordell was accidently reviewing last years week 12 game tape. Coach left it playing while taking a private call in another office. After a 10 minute conversation Coach returns to his office. As the door creaked open and coach looked up in surprise. There was the said LB'er with a Patriots jersey on. Coach then sits down and reaches under desk. Pulling out a tray of Jell-O shots. After 4-5 a piece, Coach invites LB'er and his family to TGIFridays.

    And you paid him a lot. I was offering about half of what you did.

    He's good, and he's worth it (my rt tackle position gave up 8 sacks last year!). And I dont think I offered much more than market price for him either... He ended up being a really big upgrade to what I had at RT and was actually cheaper than what I was paying for former rt Clary. After cutting Clary it worked out nicely for the Bolts. Switched him from LT to RT and our OL is filling in nicely for year two.

    I agree with you that it was a little bit of a gamble trying to sign these guys without knowing their exact stats but this one paid off because he is exactly what I was looking for. Upper 80's pass block, I think 83 run block, and lower 80's Impact blocking!

    Once you advance to the next stage, is scouting still available or is this the final stage for it? Are you planning another early morning advance Sunday?

    The next stage is the draft, so we sit here until 5pm on Sunday. This stage-7 is the final week for scouting.
