.....and its pretty affordable from my point of view. Beatty signed for 5 years and $38.74MM with a $12MM signing bonus. Now we don't know anything about the structure of the deal, but on the surface its just over $7MM/yr for a good starting LT. I think Volmer is another level up talent wise, but he has that chronic back should mitigate his demands down to where Beatty signed. If Volmer was willing to take that kind of deal, but with some injury protection for the team, they could probably get something done. BOTTOM LINE - I think this deal shows the effect of the large number of OLmen available in FA this class and the effect of flat cap on the general FA class. This is going to be a GREAT year to have some cap room to spend.
