You can not use that first money ($3.8 million) on anyone else. So pocketed. The rest was a mixed bag. They did go overslot on a couple of players, but under on several more. And I linked an article about one who was pissed and called the Pirates cheap because they would not budge from $8,000 under slot and go to slot ($130,000 instead of $138,000). He is likely going to college instead and went to the press pretty pissed off over the $8000 snub.
