I don't understand why there are so many who are surprised at anything Ballard has done or hasn't done. He is doing exactly what he said he was going to do. He said he wasn't going to over spend for free agents and he was building through the draft. He hasn't varied from what he said he was going to do.
If anyone expected this team to be competitive enough this year then they are delusional. We don't even know how the coaching staff is going to do or if they are the right ones for the jobs. Everyone wanted a new coaching staff, well we have one now and it's a wait and see thing now. There is no high dollar free agent that is going to get us wins. Signing a free agent is the least of our problems at this time.
