how will it work in the summer of 2009? We have to offer a qualifying offer to Webs (and Frye and Jack), then they will be restricted FA. If we sign them to large amounts, then salary cap space will be tight. Can we first sign another FA, using whatever cap space there is, then match Webs on whatever RFA offer he got? My understanding is that there is a sequence that is important: first sign non-Blazer FAs, so that it stays within salary cap, then sign Blazer FAs or extend contracts, where the salary cap does not impose restrictions. Does this seem correct?
