I was looking at the free agent tracker last night and I was really surprised at some of the WRs that have be out right releases already this year... names like Chris Matthews, Diontae Spencer, Bryant Mitchell, and Duke Williams, all of them I have in my top 15 of league WRs... I could see not signing them yet, because there are a lot of top WRs hitting free agency this year, but to already cut them... dang...  Duke had over 1500 yards this year, led the league

Duke, Matthews, Spencer, and Mitchell are all signed to NFL futures deals and that is why their respective teams released them.

thanks for the info, I knew it was being talked about but didn't know it was already a done deal... but that brings ups another deal then, if they weren't going to be free agents this year, now they've been released, so if they get cut by the NFL they will come back as a free agent... probably doesn't effect a lot of players given the trend for 1 year deals as of late though...

more or less just 'thinking out loud' there, lol... newbie catching up to the pack...  Grin

No they were to become free-agents in February..this just is a courtesy move to allow them to sign earlier...though if they get released from their NFL deals or cut in camp..they become free to sign with whomever

In the CFL almost every team will release players on expiring deals prior to February if the have an NFL deal worked out in the hopes that the good faith shown might lead them back to them if the NFL doesn't work out.

The only CFL person released to pursue the NFL that was under contract for 2019 was Jordan Williams Lambert. He only gained his release because he grieved his contract terms with the CFL.

Pretty sure all new contracts that are signed have the same NFL window now.  Multi-year or not, they can still tryout for NFL teams during the window.  And should they get offered a contract, the CFL teams will release them.    Not sure what Lambert's issue was, but going forward, it should be open season in the window...

Yes going forward. He asked about specific players initially.

Duron Carter said he would retire if the new CBA isn't signed before free agency. What a goof.

Well I guess that he's retiring because they're not even negotiating until March.
