NFL Free Agency

Category : Quick Tips

The NFL Free Agency is a period of time (beginning March 3) in which ‘free agents’ can move from team to team without compensation. This period officially finishes on April 21. A ‘free agent’ (by NFLPA definition) is “a player who is not under contract and is free to negotiate and sign a Player Contract with any NFL Club, without Draft Choice Compensation or any Right of First Refusal.”

A player can be a ‘restricted’ or ‘unrestricted’ free agent. Players become ‘restricted’ free agents when they have accrued 3 years (and their contract expires). Unrestricted free agency happens when the players has accrued 4 or more years and their contract has expired. The definition for ‘accrued’ by the NFL is “Six or more regular-season games on a club’s active/inactive, reserved-injured or physically unable to perform lists.
