    Is it just me or do they seem a lot more active in the UDFA market this year compared to past ones?

     

     



    nah they usually get 12-20 UDFA guys every year. Them and TB always sign the most UDFA guys, most likely why the also find the most that end up o the team too

     

     



    Dude what are you talking about.

     

     

    2009 I think they signed (4)

    2010 I thin they signed (7)

    2012 I think they signed (7)

    2011 I think they signed (12)

    2008 I think they signed (13)

     

    They always used to be one of the last teams you found out about with the UDFAs as well.

    You might be right. I'm probably thinking about the FA signings after the draft too when I pulled that number together in my head but usually they are pretty active after the draft

    This list could still grow as there are guys who usually wait until the dust settles,and then there are guys who decide to reneg because the competition is too stiff and there a better opportunity at team B's roster.

    TJ Moe 26 bench reps he's a strong kid. He must be good at fighting off defenders.

     



    welker 2.0, stronger

     

    Bredbruu They have completely revamped the WR corps! Boyce,Moe,Dobson and Thompkins not bad for a three day rebuilding job! All of these guys had one thing in common 3 cone times were good to exceptional. Jones,Jenkins,and the rest of the questionable WR on the team prior to the draft better bring their A game to OTA's and camp! first one drops an easy pass is probably going bye-bye!

    I wonder if some of that money that they did not spend in FA that everyone was whining about is being used to sweeten the deals and lure for some of these prioty UDFA signings

     

     

    most likely not. UDFA contracts are rarely above round 7 contracts and never above round 4 contracts. Round 4 contracts are usually the one's that start counting against the 51 contracts counted in camp

     

     



    I don't think teams are allowed to sweeten UDFA deals any more under the new CBA. Everyone gets the same deal.

    Re: UDFA

    On average, about 450 rookies end up making either a 53 man roster or a practice squad each year, so almost as many undrafted rookies end up sticking on the 53-man or practice squad rosters as drafted rookies. 

    Muz, I do think the CBA allows them to pay practice squad players more than the minimum required weekly practice squad salary.  I'm not sure it allows signing bonuses, though.

    2013 Patriots Undrafted Free Agent Signings   TJ Moe

    WIll T.J. Moe make this Patriots roster?

     




    my draft systems involves coin tosses and intensive analysis of first and last names. The easier it is to market a player's name, the better the prospects

    Hopefully TJ will get his "Moe-Jo" on......

    T.J. Moe is a really good prospect, I had him getting drafted, can't believe our good fortune in signing him.  He had the best combine of any receiver.

    Cory Grissom was also on my big board at DT, he has potential to replace Love or Deaderick should they decide to walk after next season.

    Kendrell Thompkins at WR was also up there, as were corners Stephon Morris and Brandon Jones.

    Josh Kline the guard out of Kent State has really good measurables, his agility drills at the pro day would have landed him in the top ten at the combine. Kanorris Davis has some intriguing measurables and was actually an undersized linebacker but projects as a safety at the next level.  All in all a good free agent hall.

    I am pretty sure it didn't change - last year we signed Demps as a UDFA and gave him 15K as a signing bonus plus I believe a partial or full first year guarantee. And the two DLs we just signed this off season were UDFAs. And we were in a bidding war for Armstead. Teams can do whatever they want in terms of bonuses and guarantees for UDFAs as with their draftees - just cannot exceed the rookie pool or the salary cap. So there is bidding wars for the prime UDFAs. As for practice squad - we frequently pay players above the minimum, often quite a bit above, to convince them not to bolt for another team.

    Re: UDFA

    You can sign UDRFAs to any base salary you want, but their salary (above the rookie minimum) counts against the rookie cap, so that limits what teams have available to pay.  There is a limit on the signing bonus you can give undrafted rookies.  It was $75K the first year of the CBA, but it increases every year at the same rate as the whole rookie pool.  

    One quirk of the CBA is that for drafted rookies their entire salary counts against the rookie cap while for undrafted rookies only the portion of the salary above minimum counts against the rookie cap.
