and w/ a 4th, we can find a starter on the ol if our own haven't developed.
seems there will be a lot of guys playing for the vet min this year.
Sur, we all like to sign as many players that we love to have, but there are still teams out there with a ton of cap space that we don't want to engage in a bidding wars with like the Browns, the Bengals, the Dolphins, to name a few.
What we have over them is the possibility to go all the way.
It does help us in term of adding LBTE incentives to make the contract more attractive while those teams have to up their ante straight away for FAs.
Still, we have to watch our wallet, so to speak.
