Trades and signings have consumed many football fans’ lives since the end of the NFL lockout. The bulk of the signings have been between teams and undrafted free agents (UDFAs). We covered the player/agent relationships for those drafted in Rounds 1-7 of the 2011 NFL Draft (and have done our best to update it based on players switching agents quite frequently). Now, we will take a stab at putting together a comprehensive list of UDFA signings along with the players’ agents of record. Major thanks to Neil Stratton of Inside The League for helping us put this list together. Call to agents: Make sure to send us your UDFAs who have signed so that we can keep this list up-to-date.
