Question

Maybe someone could clarify this for me: didn't Wheeler achieve his UFA status because he went so long (4 years?) without being signed to a pro contract? If this is the case, can anyone say whether Phoenix made any attempt to sign him in previous years? If not, I wonder why people would frown upon a player taking advantage of this rare situation, given that it was brought about, at least in part, by Phoenix's not making a serious attempt to sign him earlier.
