Bills | Moulds asks for his release
Mon, 13 Mar 2006 16:25:54 -0800

Leo Roth, of the Democrat and Chronicle, reports Buffalo Bills WR Eric Moulds, who has been asked to take a substantial cut in pay, wants the team to release him from the final two years of his contract so he can sign with another team. "Let him go, it's only fair," Greg Johnson, Moulds' personal advisor, said today after talking with his client. "If they're not going to pay what we feel is fair-market value, he should be allowed to go somewhere where he could maybe get it." Moulds is scheduled to count $10.8 million against the salary cap and he's due to earn $7.1 million in cash (salary and bonus) for the upcoming season.

10 years in the league, 816 yards last year, but wants 7 million next year, at least that is what he is scheduled to make.

Mould is scheduled to earn $7.1 million in 2006. He has refused multiple requests to restructure his deal.



So what haven't the Bills cut him?



Spite.



Oh, they'll never admit it. "Our intention remains to keep Eric as a part of our team," G.M. Marv Levy said on Monday.



But we know what's happening, Marv. We know. The idea is to hang onto Moulds' rights for now, while all of the other guys eat at the March big money trough. By the time the Bills cut him in July or August, and cut him they will, no one else will have enough cap space set aside to give him in 2006 what he could have gotten if on the open market right now.

lol: clever. Moulds will never $7.1 mil a year. I think Givens will get a bigger contract then him and that won't be in the $6 mil a year range.

He was set to be released during the season when he complained about not getting the ball enough
