Personnel File – 7/30

From St. Joseph, Missouri

In the last week the pace of personnel moves around the NFL has been staggering. Rookies, veterans, free agents, franchise players and the like have been dominating the transactions.

The Chiefs have joined that parade to the point where it’s darn near impossible to keep track of the comings and goings. It’s been an unprecedented week in player matters within the league as four months of an off-season were crammed into less than a week. On Friday, teams were officially able to sign free agents, whether their own or from other teams. But those free agents can’t get work on the practice field until Thursday, when the new league year will officially begin.

It’s all led to long hours, many phone calls and heaven know how many words in negotiations.

For your consideration and my sanity, I’m going to update the personnel moves every chance I get.

    If the new CBA pretty much specifies salary, length of contracts, etc., why is Justin Houston not in camp? Given his past behavioral problems, this may not be a good sign.
