So say I do the auction, and then decide to drop them all at no penalty and clear up a good chunk of my income. Can I think go and pick them back up off free agency and only assign then the $5 FA salary?
The current rules state that you can't drop players until after auction. So the players on the roster are there until the season start. If you want to drop a guy after the auction, and they have 1 year left on their deal, the drop is free of charge (no penalty). That player would then go into waivers where he would sit for 3 days. At that time, any number of teams could make a claim on said player. When you drop a player, you are unable to make a waiver claim on that player, CBS doesn't allow it.
I like the questions, keep em' coming.
