His NTC kicked in a hour ago.
Like that would stop trader Jim!
According to cap geek, Hansen has a modified NTC and Higgins has a limited NTC. Don't know the difference nor the specifics. If Jim wants them gone they will be gone.
He said Sunday that he does not anticipate moving anyone from the roster until after camp. Feels they have good competition for all spots with the existing players, new players, young kids and whoever they add at FA. Said he will worry about those that don't make the roster then and make decisions at that time. So it doesnt't look like he is set one way or the other at this point. Still open to deals but content to go to camp as it is and let the players earn a spot.
I like his attitude. I think if some young kids earn a spot he will be content to dump the older guys at that time. I already like how he is willing to let players go if he doesn't see a fit, Garrison, Dalpe, JS. Right or wrong he is decisive. One of my gripes with MG was his fear of losing a player on waivers that often saw him keeping lesser players on the roster and sending waiver eligible players down. Now to a point I get that as you need good asset management but he just seemed to be afraid of making a mistake.
Silly hour is almost upon us. Do I go to bed now so I am fresh for the day or just pull an all nighter? At my age I figure I only have 10-15 Free Agency Days left so how best to enjoy them is the challenge.
