Unrestricted free agents may entertain offers to play from any and all other teams and to make their own contractual decisions. Unrestricted free agents may sign with any club up until and including the first scheduled day of NFL training camp in July. After that, the unrestricted free agent’s rights revert to his prior club if it has made him an offer of 110 percent of last year’s salary by June 1. His old club may resign him up until the Tuesday after the 10th week of the season. If he is not resigned, he must sit out that season. If the player was not offered a contract by June 1, he can be signed anywhere at any time throughout the season. Unrestricted free agents are players who have completed four or more seasons and have an expired contract.
