From the time the doors at each of the NFL’s 32 teams opened for business on Tuesday, free agency has been in full gear. From undrafted college players being courted and signed, veteran players being told in advance they would be cut on Thursday, and the rumors of which unrestricted free agents are going where starting Friday, the news has been frantic and non-stop.
Social media site Twitter has been a go-to staple for those who follow the league and the teams, thanks to the work of the Pro Football Writers of America.
The best way for me, and I recommend it to you, is by following lists put together by the PFWA on Twitter Now, the main feed (@PFWAwriters) is links to stories of note, but for those of you who are not aware, lists can be set up on Twitter accounts with specific individual accounts contained there. The PFWA has a master account list that you can follow if you are on Twitter (click Lists on @PFWAwriters and select All-PFWA-Members or any of the other lists (national writers and by each NFL division), or click this link: http://twitter.com/PFWAwriters/all-pfwa-members).
If you are not on Twitter, you can still keep up by going to the same web page referenced above: http://twitter.com/PFWAwriters/all-pfwa-members. There are over 220 PFWA members on Twitter, and the information you’ll learn will be dizzying in the next couple of weeks.
If you love the NFL, or are a fantasy football junkie, it is literally news as it happens during the day, in a lot of cases before it makes websites and TV. I also invite you to follow me on Twitter: (@BlogAndTackle).
