Players with fewer than four accrued seasons who received no Qualifying Offer or no minimum tender from their Old Club:
(The players in category No. 6 may be signed with no rights of any character held by the Old Club. There is no signing deadline applicable to these players)
For me, the keepers on the list are Bradshaw, Boss, Grant, Kiwanuka and Smith. Cofield is pretty much out the door. Bulluck is gone, as well. Some of the other names on the list you can make an argument one way or the other. I think Blackburn might return, given the short window before games start, and it would be nice to keep Boothe for depth.
