Need help understanding LTIR.
So for example if I sign Corbin for 1 year and put him on LTIR, that year comes off my cap and I can sign somebody else to a 1-year deal.
What if I sign Corbin for 3 years? Do I put him on LTIR and still just 1 year comes off my cap (i.e. he counts as 2 instead of 3 and I get to sign a 1-year guy (or whatever cap room I have)?
I wouldn’t do that for a guy with a torn UCL, but just wondering for future instances.
Also, am I forced to sign him to a minimum of 1-year deal since I drafted him?
