The Effectiveness of the NFL’s Three-Day Unrestricted Free Agent Negotiating Window

That is a good question: “If teams and players were unable to reach agreements on various terms of a prospective contract, what is the point of negotiating?”

There was a lot of action that occurred immediately after the unrestricted free agent signing period opened up this year. I think the 3 day negotiation period does make it hard to avoid “tampering” but it also gives the players and the agents more time to consider their options with different teams and make smarter choices in regards to where they will sign for the upcoming season. From a Media standpoint the negotiation period does lead to a lot of speculation in regards to where players may sign, but contract details are omitted for obvious reasons.
