Signing Ike would be great but how can they even being talking?
They cannot sign anyone at this moment - if the emergency stay entered by the 8th Circuit is not extended free agency could start by the end of next week
But my guess is there will be a FA period prior to whenever the season starts - we all know agents and teams are talking now, just as there are talks prior to the official start date for free agency and someone signs a new deal within 6 hours of when the FA signing period opens for business in a normal year
