Okung will have to wait until free agency begins to talk to teams


In the two-page memo circulated earlier this week by the NFL to all 32 teams regarding the rules of the looming pre-free-agency negotiating period, only one sentence was emphasized with an underline: “If a player is self-represented, clubs are prohibited from discussions with the player during the negotiating period.”  

“This means that Seahawks tackle Russell Okung won’t be allowed to talk to other teams until the free agency period officially opens on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.”– Mike Florio reports.

Teams can’t talk to Okung during negotiating period, even though he’s his own agent
