Actually they reported on SportsCenter earlier this evening that the league has not given them permission to negotiate with anyone just yet.

This is a pretty unique situation in that when the top pick signs before the draft it usually happens late in the week and the second team does not have ample time to negotiate a contract with the guy they are looking at. Since this is the earliest a top pick has ever signed leading up to the draft the league is in the process of figuring out what to do.

Given how much hype and publicity the NFL gets for the draft and the ratings it brings the league probably wants to drag its feet a bit otherwise half of the first round will be signed to deals by the time Saturday afternoon rolls around.
