Agent: Teams started calling Sunday night

So this will not stun you but some teams began calling agents about their free agent clients on Sunday night, one agent tells me.

Once it seemed a collective bargaining agreement was close to being done, teams started calling agents around the sport, and began talking deals. No one was wasting time.

My agent source said teams are in full negotating mode now with agents. He believes -- shocker -- numerous deals are already done.

The agent also said something interesting that teams were informing agents which of their clients was going to get cut so teams stayed under the salary cap.

Just the beginning of what's going to be a wild week.

Have heard  that CBS is trading Freeman to the Sci-Fy channel and Prisco to the show Pit Boss. Not sure if he will be a trainor or trainee.. Got to be a Trainor as the Pit Bulls are bigger then Petey.

I also have sources who tell me the players started getting ready for training camp.  Sources say that if the players are not ready they might get cut.  We might also see some team trade players in the next few weeks.

Definitely not surprised with this.  I'm sure that all teams have their list of key free agents they want to sign for this season.  I'm sure there were many that knew they had to strike as early as possible to secure their spot in line.  This will be a crazy week in the NFL that's for sure and I won't be surprised when we hear about some highly paid veteran folks getting cut.  Buckle in...

My sources tell me that Mike Freeman's sources are AP Wire reports and made up in his head.
