Probably zero action from TT pre draft.

I don't know...if we don't have a problem with McCain, which some on here have speculated, then pulling that tender was designed to free up money...and now. Otherwise, why not hold onto him until after the draft? You have a talented player fall to you in the middle rounds who makes McCain expendable, then you drop him, and free up that money to sign a post draft cut. If you get your needs filled, but don't add any pass rushers...then you keep him.

Releasing him now, in this way, tells me they wanted that money for something. Or there is some time factor here that would cement them into the offer? That part of the process I'm unclear on.

My hunch is they are even now talking to somebody pre draft...and they needed the money to do it. Who that might be? No clue.

we're talking about a LB/DE that is a spot player, pure back up. If he starts on this team then it's going no where. what's the big deal if they pull the deal off the table?

Not a starter, but a solid backup who flashed. Depth...that's the big deal. We are now woefully thin going into draft at that position, when we didn't need to be. Pick another DE in the draft, or an upgrade from post draft cuts? Then you can pull the offer...

That they pulled the offer made me think that they needed money now...

But another fan pointed out that the offer had yet to be signed, and if signed, would be locked in? My eyes glaze over when talking contracts and tenders, I admit, but now that I kinda see that, my other theory would be that McCain was giving up on a better offer, and maybe even intending to sign, and the Bolts pulled it back, and are trying to save a few more bucks.

What I mean is I hope the McCain situation hasn't come about thru poor managerial desicion making or even worse pride.

We're a winning team. Unless you want to count the 0-4 start against them.
