Free agency pushed back

The NFL has extended the free agency period, moving it back three days instead of the month that had previously been talked about.

The move comes on the heals of the owners' meeting Thursday in which they voted not to cave into the players' salary demands.

Teams now have until 6 p.m. Sunday to be under the cap. But which cap is it going to be? Could be about $95 million if there is no new CBA. It could be $105 million with a new CBA in place.

That's quite a difference. You can see why NFL teams are in such a state of confusion right now.
