One or two of these tryout players could be signed to the 90-man roster once the minicamp has concluded, but most will pack their bags and go home.

The team currently has 90 players on its roster — but new International Pathways Program player Chukwuebuka Godrick has a roster exemption. So officially, the roster now stands at 89 players; one other player may be added without waiving or releasing another one.

Accounting for all known transactions, we now estimate that the team has $1.5 million in salary-cap space.
