Source: Free agency could start at midnight
As the league scrambles to process the meaning of the union’s decision to decertify, a high-level source with one team tells PFT that the league is preparing for the possibility that free agency could begin soon.
As in at midnight.
Per the source, the league is bracing for the possibility of a ruling from Judge David Doty that would force the doors to remain open, compelling the league to allow player movement and trades as soon as 12:01 a.m. Saturday.
Thus, by tomorrow at this time, Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha could (key word . . . “could”) have a new team.
Though no one knows for sure whether that will happen, there’s a fear/belief that it could, and teams are preparing for the possibility.
Holy crap, this could get very interesting.
