This is a condensed version of transactions that have been made by the organization since Kubiak was hired. In my opinion, Kubiak (and later Smith) has orchestrated a massive reconstruction of the mess he inherited last season. This staff has really come in here and put their stamp on the team, no doubt. For the sake of brevity, I removed quite a few transactions, but kept the ones I thought were meaningful.
