    I’m starting to wonder if they’ll only carry 13 guys during the regular season for tax purposes and just call up a player from Canton if somebody gets hurt.

  2. what salary cap exception was used to resign dellavedova. ?mini MLE

    • Chuck Myron

      Delly signed his qualifying offer, so they didn’t have to use the mini-MLE. They had his Early Bird rights, so they technically used the Early Bird exception to bring him back.
