Expedited timetable comes into focus

If NFL players approve the 10-year proposed collective bargaining agreement later Monday, the league's transactional business will operate at warp speed, with the possibility of teams being allowed to sign their drafted players as soon as today.

Tentatively, here's how things would work: Teams could sign their draftees and rookie free agents beginning no later than Tuesday, with the possibility that the signing period could be moved up a day. 

Starting Tuesday, teams can also begin talking to unrestricted free agents, with the signing period beginning on Friday at 6 p.m.

Camps will open on Wednesday for 10 teams, then on Thursday for 10 other teams, on Friday for 10 more, and then on Sunday for the remaining two teams. It has not been announced which teams would open camps on which days.
