[Note by Kurupt, 02/27/09 1:09 AM EST ] Rumblers, please follow this link for the final open thread of the night. The thread you see is thread one; thread two is here, thread three is here.Thanks for coming by! [End Note]
Welcome to the start of the NFL Free Agent signing period at Buffalo Rumblings!
Before we get into signings and re-signings from around the rest of the league, let's quickly recap the busy Thursday of the Buffalo Bills:
- OG Derrick Dockery and TE Robert Royal were released
- OT Kirk Chambers and FB Corey McIntyre were re-signed
- A dozen restricted and exclusive rights free agents were tendered or re-signed
- The team hosted free agent CB Drayton Florence and LB Jamie Winborn
Please use those specific threads to discuss those topics. This thread is for all of the news that's bound to roll in late tonight as the free agent signing period opens at midnight.
I would like us all to post ANY FA moves you find here. If something comes up Bills-related - i.e. a team signing or a popular target comes off the market - please discuss those here as well until one of the site's main authors can address it on the front page. Last year was just a tad bit wild with all of the posts we had everywhere!
Let's have some fun with this, folks. It's going to be a long night, but it's also going to be an eventful one. Strap on your thinking caps, get excited and GO BILLS!
Editor's Note, by Brian Galliford: I'd like extend a public thanks to WABillsFan for offering to run this open thread for the start of the NFL's 2009 free agent signing period. Equal thanks go out to co-bloggers such as jri111 and Kurupt, whose night prowling makes my life infinitely easier. I may be 23, but I'm 93 at heart, and value sleep as highly as Buffalo values the money it promised Derrick Dockery. End Note
