I'm a little confused why he might be available? Cleveland would cut him?

I'd be so pumped. Dude is a potential difference maker in the passing game. Was disappointed we passed on him in the draft.

It's all sounds very Cleveland-ish to me.

Looking at this, there are a lot of guys that could see their pay cut by ~25-50% on their next deal. Mostly looking at the defensive players:

M Dareus, DT - $14m 

E Griffen, DE - $14.5m

C Harris, CB - $12m

AJ Green, WR - $15m

Jimmy Smith, CB - $11m

D. McCourty, FS - $9.5m

A Talib, CB - $9.5m

N Suh, DT - $9m

E Ansah, DE - $9m

M. Bennett, DL - $8.5m

G. McCoy, DT - $8m

R. Quinn, DE - $8m

 

We could seriously have an entirely new DL for a little more than we are playing Lawrence. If we could get Quinn/Suh/McCoy/McCourty for under ~$25m/yr, that would completely free us to do whatever in the draft. Especially if we wanted to draft a 1st round WR and tag (tag and trade) Cooper this year.

I just wanted to note that, if we do finally splurge all this cap space we’ve been hoarding for a couple years, it may be an indictment of our 2017-19 draft picks and their collective chances to earn second contracts. You can make the case that Gallup is the only guy that “has to” get one

2017-2019 drafts wont need contracts for another 1-3 years.
