08:03 AM ET 06.23 | The languorous lockout will stand in stark contrast to the mad dash to fill out rosters. As momentum continues toward a new collective bargaining agreement between NFL owners and the league's players, general managers and agents are bracing for a frenetic free-agency signing period that could resemble the rush at a midnight opening of an electronics store when the latest high-tech gadget becomes available. "It's going to be insane," said a prominent agent who has several high-level free-agent players. ... The immediate frenzy to sign free agents could be like nothing we've seen because of the condensed period teams will have to shape their rosters before training camps are scheduled to open in late July or early August.

I fully expect the Redskins to win July like they usually win April. And it will have even less impact on their record as usual.

Roger Goodell is insane.

I see they are using the same picture of Goodell. His lip's are puckered that way from kissing the owners azzez!

I'd like to see one of him getting his job done instead of just standing there preaching.

Isn't Drew Rosenhaus still representing TO as well as Plax now? I can't wait to hear him talk about their prowess in order to scheist them on someone. I do enjoy a good snake oil vendor.

Now I know why Rodger Goodells picture is on every other truth and rumors thread. He is the one responsible for all the rumors.

Rosenhaus is the best in that department... Scott Boras, too.

Well...if both sides were able to reach an agreement we wouldnt have this problem now would we?

Nope. This story is one big tease, for sure.

God is just tidying up all the loose ends. Osama bin Laden is dead. Whitey Bulger is captured. The Bruins won the Stanley Cup. The NFL Lockout will be settled. Oprah has gone off the air.

Now, remember that the world is scheduled to end in October. Right after the Cubs win the World Series.

Dont care, just end the lockout.. I need my football fix!

Why are the owners sharing any of the $$$....aren't they taking all the financial risk and paying the players a high enough salary???

The owners don't get concussions, although many of them act like they have.

Rosenhaus & Boras - twin sons of different snakes.

Just look at the next post after yours (aabner thompson) for another type of snake oil vendor. Why can't SI keep that crap off of the message boards?

Shoeless? We got an e-mail at work yesterday about "proper foot attire." It's a safety thing, but, like, we work in an office building. The prohibition against "frontless, backless or sideless" footwear would seem to be discriminating against women, since most of the guys here don't wear heels too often.
