Player signings for the National Lacrosse League have been moving along at a steady pace in preparation for the 2014 season, but not everyone is locked up just yet. The Colorado Mammoth were the first to open training camp this past weekend and more teams are set to follow in the coming weekends. So using the NLL’s transaction page, along with news releases from teams over the last couple of weeks, here’s what ILIndoor has with regard to who has yet to sign. In mid-October, we provided a list of players’ status before the CBA was put in place. So take a look at the update to find out who is left to sign a deal. Those who have signed, or who have had a qualifying offer made to them by their respective teams, are not on this list.
