I could see the agreement in principle when you are reading from rotoworld or other news sources. When it it on the official NFL site as a completed transaction
then I'd say it's officially in the books. Also sites like spotrac
usually can only have this info after it is officially reported.
I'm sure plenty of players can be on hold, so to speak, but usually those wouldn't have any news out. Elbert Mack comes to mind. "We'll get you back after we have our other free agents & draftees sorted out."
