      We continue to have periodic FA updates, but will no longer list potential prospects. Today’s list has been updated to reflect the latest changes, additions, subtractions, etc.

      Feel free to offer your own ideas about the draft, free agency, team cuts, and anything else related to these subjects. Too, we’d like to see your mocks if you are so inclined.
