He was working Music City in '98, I believe.
I was unaware of Adam Windsor's age when I signed him, which is admittedly my bad. If it's allowed, I'd like to drop him in favor of The Messiah rather than having Windsor on my roster without using him any further.
He's being held until the next dispersal draft. I caught that mistake of him not being in the rookie draft when I noticed after the fact that he was previously in an earlier rookie draft and then removed due to age, and figured that was the fairest way to remedy it.
Unfortunately there's no list of people previously removed due to age in 2017, 2016, etc., so this will occasionally happen.
Cool. I kept checking the rosters to make sure that no one had picked him up, because even though Moore's not a big name, he was big enough that he should never spend a lot of time on the FA List.
