This isn't like the Devs last year...who had a reliable starter when not injured...and notice how important having guys in their system was.
All true, my gut feeling is that Holmgren has already decided to re-sign Niittymaki, unless something else comes up during the draft dealings. If not, we'll have a back up, whether Niitty or someone else, by July 2nd.
