everyone is so uptight about budget stuff on RZ. There is a value to a roughly league average starter, even if you aren't going to go to the playoffs. If they don't use that money to try and leverage it for future draft picks or as trading chips what exactly are they going to use it on? Kiełbasa?
I'm basing that off an assumption that money can be saved to go over budget in future seasons... is that off-base?
