Guys & Gals ~ Many of you know far more about contracts, how they effect the cap, etc than I do so I wanted to pose the question as to whether or not it would be a good time to start seriously thinking about locking in a couple of our restricted free agents? I'm thinking Manny Sanders more than anyone else but McClendon has also played well, are there others? Maybe a three year deal for both guys at a decent but not ridiculous amount? I'm not sure how it works or where we should start. Or do we typically do this directly after the draft?

I'm not sure we have the funds to sign Manny long term right now. I would expect he would want 3-5 per right now and that would pretty much end our free agency period right there. We get 5 million after June 1....but we don't have it now and a lot of that is gonna be eaten up by the draft class.

Probably be better to wait till after the draft to see what we get
