    Why did they have to resign him to add him to their gleague affiliate? Didn’t they already have the ability to do that after waiving him earlier in the week.

      Only thing I can think of is that the first deal wasn’t an Exhibit 10 contract, so they wanted to make sure he got his Exhibit 10 bonus. Odd either way though.
