A sign and trade would allow us to go over the cap and not have to renounce our own free agents, therefore we keep there bird rights, which would, if we wanted to, to re-sign them even if we are over the cap. It would also gives us the exceptions to use.

Again, the MLE is for teams over the cap or right at it......when free agency starts. It's not like teams under the cap can sign free agents and then also use the MLE. One or the other.
