For those of you who are asking about rookie free agents who have signed with NFC North teams, that information is starting to trickle out, mostly via local beat reporters who are sniffing them out one by one. Here are some links and highlights from what I've seen so far.
Chicago actually announced its list, which includes Bowling Green receiver Freddie Barnes. Some of you might know that Barnes caught 155 passes last season, including 17 for 219 yards in the Humanitarian Bowl.
John Niyo of the Detroit News has some of the Lions' signings.
Minnesota's list of 10 players is on the Star Tribune's Web site. But the highlight is a player not on the list, one who will apparently get a three-day tryout at the Vikings' rookie minicamp this weekend. Jacksonville State quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, once a blue-chip recruit who was kicked off LSU's team two years ago, reportedly will have a chance to be signed to the 80-man roster
