You get the extra season before you have to make that commitment and I'd rather take the risk of having to match a rookie max offer, with the smaller raises, then commit that much money before I was sure. If these guys level off this season, these teams could regret those signings for a long time. The only one I think I like is Buddy's.
Sounds good, but you may have to deal with a hold out, a Rich Paul client insisting on taking the QO, a player who's value increases, a player who gets out of sorts or plays selfishly, etc.
As a bonus, the team's that signed these players are under little pressure to trade them. They can take their time and find the right deal if they decide they really can't afford what they offered.
