There is no simple answer based on the limited facts stated. It would depend on the State, the type of contract, and what the contract was about. The written but unsigned contract could still be the contract, if the parties proceeded as the contract were signed. If so, you have an implied contract. But, if the contract was for, say land for example, a different set of rules would apply. If it were an employment contract, yet another set of rules would apply.
