    Ian Gold

    Why hasn't anybody signed Ian Gold yet? Last year he was one of the best LBers before his injury, he's young, sure he could miss the preseason with that injury but the long term benifits are great! He's fast, strong and a hard hitter, exactly what we need. He reminds me of Matt Blair, We need this guy!
    I may be an a$$, but at least I m a smart one

    Well, the main free agent signing period unofficially ended at the owners meetings. It's true that he could have been signed any time since then, but after the owner's meetings, most teams shift their focus from free agents to the draft. After the draft, the average dollars associated with veteran free agent contracts goes down, so it's probable that nobody will sign Gold until after April 25th.

    As to the question of why nobody signed him before the owners' meetings, well, I don't know. Maybe he was asking too much, and teams were willing to wait and bet they could get him at a cheaper price. Maybe the injury you speak of appears more serious. This is all conjecture, I don't really know the answer to that question.
