Joel Corry put together a list of key offseason dates, and David’s salary guarantee is one of them. Those kinds of clauses are fairly standard in big contracts, and David has certainly played well enough to warrant the Bucs hanging on to him. In fact, I’d argue that $6 million is significantly underpaying him. Decisions other teams are set to make are a little more intriguing, because they might push one or two…

Compensatory draft picks are added to the end of rounds, and awarded based on net free agency losses.
