That’s what it is in the NFL. The 2008 season is underway. Trades and free-agent signings can now take place — goodbye Troy Williamson, hello sixth-round draft pick from Jacksonville — and you better believe executives and player agents around the NFL will be burning the midnight oil as free-agent visits get set up tonight.
Bears free agent receiver Bernard Berrian appears to be the Vikings’ top target and he’s expected to be in town tomorrow to meet with club officials. Berrian is going to get big bucks and it’s likely either going to come from the Tennessee Titans or the Vikings. Last year, those teams battled for the services of Kevin Curtis and Curtis took his receiving skills to Philadelphia.
