Just recently they haven't signed Bryan Morgado, Matt Grimes, and Josef Terry. Perhaps they signed most of their earlier picks in years past, but most reports had the aforementioned players not seeking much more than slot. With how terrible the farm is and the complete lack of depth, quality prospects like these need to be signed. You realize how little they spend right? Near bottom of the barrel every year. Teams spend in 1 year on the draft what they spend in 2 combined.
