  1. Great info. Thanks Lyle.
    As an aside, Charlie McAvoy remains restricted at the end of this new contract.

    Arbitration may be a key factor once most of these bridge deals are up.

  2. Where high-profile RFAs are concerned, GMs have learned that you pay for promise – what’s to come – not for what’s been done in the past and then saddling themselves with high-priced over-the-hill has-beens. Baseball learned that lesson a long time ago to the point where older players signing new deals get a pittance in comparison to the up-and-comers. Football is much the same.
