We apparently have no cap space, he just signed an unproven Tackle to a "small wealth" contract and we are currently losing several players that helped get us to the playoffs in the first place with no likelihood of signing replacements that'll move the needle in any way. So far we lost a $16.5M OLB that we have 1 that is on the team better than him anyway (TJ) and his $15.5M cost savings replacement on roster (Highsmith). A slot Corner, who I love, but is far more jack of all than a stud at any one thing whose replacement was signed to a deal that will probably see him re-upped as our starting LCB next year. Let's see what the contract is. A solid, not great RT who's replacement was already on roster and got paid really well for his skill level. Our starting NT who will play 30% of the snaps and will be 34 making way more than we should have paid. Guys.....we are jumping off bridges yet. Im not saying we are better with out them, but you can pretty much argue we are not giant leaps worse.... Edited March 16, 2021 by Dcash4 Added names for clarity. Didn't want someone to think I was saying Highsmith was better than Bud 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
