(1) Players that are true unrestricted free agents and who sign with their new team during the unrestricted free agency period count.
(2) Players who were released by their former clubs do not count.
(3) Players who sign after June 1 that were not tendered offers by their former clubs also do not count.
So, it looks like Pitts falls into category (3) and does not count.
Grosman probably signed for the veteran minimum of $760K.
He did start the last 3 games, so maybe he earned some bonus for playing time???
Maybe we're in luck.
