I am not vouching for the validity of the story, but .com doesn't usually put it up until the contract has been filed with the league office. This usually takes a little time, and depends on when the player can actually get the contract signed and returned. This is why we hear things as "official" on nfl.com, on the radio, ESPN and other sites before you read it on .com.
Whether this is real, the rumored portis signing is real or whether they are in talks with multiple guys, it's all just fodder until we get to at least mini camps and more likely, training camp and actually see who's getting what kind of reps. Until then, any signings are best to be thought of as "another arm" until we are told or see for ourselves otherwise.
We should have at LEAST 3 quarterbacks going into camp, and I believe the first voluntary workout/minicamp is April 15. I would think they'd want to have another guy signed by then to get him as much off season time as possible.
