Since McKay took over, the Falcons have been slow to release information such as this. On the official site, McCrary is listed as being re-signed on February 16. This info was not released to anyone outside the front office until February 28, when it first showed up in the AJC. Pro Football Weekly had the Falcons postseason roster moves on their site early in January (I had a story run based off that info on 1/10), but the official site had nothing about it until 2/1. There are numerous more examples, but more often than not, the official site will release info such as this a week or two later than it occurs. During free agency, I suspect we'll know about signings within 48 hours, but talking about tendering RFAs is not probably high on their priority list of headlining moves, since we only have 2 guys.
I'm sure the Falcons have tendered the RFAs, but it just won't be known until free agency officially starts.
You are absolutely right, Pudge. But I also think that Mckay knew something that no one else did or does. At least not in terms of the public. I think that he knew that a deal, more than likely, will get done this time. Not to mention that ESPN showed a list of teams over the cap as of today and the Falcons were not on the list. I may be wrong but all the pieces seem to fit.
