IIRC, we had $11 million of cap space. We were expecting Reed to take about $6 million of that space this year. Along with Lechler's signing, THAT would leave us enough room for nothing but signing the rookies and vet-minimum contracts without someone re-structuring. But if we've got an extra $2.7 million, that means we might still be able to get one of the better free agents still on the market. (And of course, we can always restructure someone.)
I hope you're right....... It would be nice to plug a couple of more holds heading into the draft so we have more flexibility.
