It’s not as challenging as finding Carmen Sandiego, but the flurry of National Lacrosse League activity over the last week can be a bit confusing. To that end, we’ve updated the free agent tracker heading into the 2014 season. Using the NLL’s transactions page, along with news releases from the teams, here’s a list of the free agents and restricted free agents as of early this morning. In mid-October, we provided a list of players’ status before the CBA was put in place. There have been plenty of signings since, so today’s list is of the players who have yet to sign anything. Players that have signed, or have had qualifying offers made to them by their respective teams, are not on this list. Now, digest.
