What is the difference between a signed UDFA and a mini-camp invitee? Example: Justin Veltung (mini-camp) vs Matt Austin (signed contract)???

A minicamp invitee is just that, someone invited to come and work out at minicamp. If they like them, they'll sign them. If not, they'll waive goodbye. Simples.

Love your username, btw.

Signed UDFAs will get a little money in the form of a bonus. Their contracts, however, usually aren't guaranteed and can be terminated at any time. NFL teams have a pool of money they're allowed to allocate to UDFAs as signing bonuses (in recent years, I heard it was $75,000 total). In 2011, for example, the Seahawks gave the biggest chunk of their signing bonus allotment to Doug Baldwin ($17.5K), Jeron Johnson ($15K) and Pierre Allen ($10K).

Mini-camp invites are like pure tryouts. It's like going out for your high school team.

One has a contract. The other does not.
