I just read in ST&NO that if your team makes the playoffs this year they don't have the opportunity to sign any free agents next year. This is assuming there's no barg. agreement which there doesn't seem to be one. If this is the case, my want for a berth this year is almost gone (good thing for the blood pressure). Call me crazy but with O-line issues among other things, I wouldn't mind McD having another complete,calm/normal, off-season to fill these wholes with ALL options available to see what he can do. This would potentially give us a much stronger team to make a stronger run next year. And although the Bolts don't sign many Free Agents it doesn't hurt that they wouldn't be allowed to. Not to mention them not receiving any "extra" checks from the top team markets because their a bottom quarter money maker. Does anybody know more about this lack of barg. agreement and what it really means this is manner?
