We all know that the offseason is going to be slow. It’s an inevitability when all you hear from the executive end of season meetings is that there will be payroll cuts and the like, so we’re going to brace ourselves yet again for a long few months where there is very little news happening each day. It’ll be interesting what offers you do hear about and what gets leaked, but for now, don’t plan on hearing too much of the good stuff any time soon.
