I was watching the Seahawks game on 5 January 2019 during the playoffs and the kicker got injured. If the Seahawks won that game, could they sign a new player to replace him or is the signing period complete after a certain point in the season?

  • During the 2014 season, Ben Tate was a free agent signed to the Steelers on December 30th. How is that possible if there is a deadline or signing period? – user16112 Jan 9 at 17:12

    I believe @Ginge is confusing the deadlines for signing players that the clubs have the rights to (but no contract, such as LeVeon Bell and the Steelers) with the signing of free agents (where there are no time limits). – Jon Custer Jan 9 at 21:54
