Does anyone know ?
If we DO NOT sign Umberger, then we get a compensation pick, a 2nd rder (around 53 overall). If we sign him before that date, then all we get is the player, no pick. You only get the pick for losing the player. The unsigned player would either re-enter the draft or become a UFA depending on his circumstances. Umberger will be a UFA if unsigned by June 1st
