Sporting Charts explains Free Agent - football

After the 2011 lock out there was free agency frenzy. This happened because owners and general managers were not able to talk to or negotiate with their players during the off-season. When the lockout ended teams only had days, instead of months to get offers sent out to these players to keep them with the team.
