New York Giants Re-Sign Mark Herzlich: The New York Giants re-signed linebacker Mark Herzlich on Friday. Terms of the deal are not known. Herzlich was eligible to be tendered as a restricted free agent by the Giants, but the team had not done so, suggesting that the team would rather have him hit the market as an unrestricted free agent rather than pay him the $1.43 million right-of-first-refusal tender.
Free Agency Really Begins Saturday: Although a team cannot officially sign a player from another team until 4:00PM ET on March 11, free agency really begins on Saturday at 4:00PM ET as teams are permitted to contact and enter into contract negotiations with certified agents of players who will become unrestricted free agents on other teams.
