If they're concerned that they'll need some more established help, they might be looking to move Wheeler for a similar or more experienced player.
I put it in one of the other threads as well. Clarke MacArthur was awarded $2.4M in his arbitration case and Atlanta walked away. I'm starting to think it would be wise if Dean waited on some of these arbitration cases to be decided. There may be some other players that are in this category coming soon.
