Weaver has had 2 or 3 "decent" games for him. If his name was Mario Williams he'd have the press all over him as well as the fans. Cut him, or restructure his contract, it's a money thing.
For the first time it is becoming a palatable money thing. Weaver will have a cap hit of $6.2 mil next year if he is on the team. He has $5.4 mil in unprorated signing bonus so there would be a small amount of cap relief if taken in one year or they could split it over two years as a June 1st cut. Hate seeing another $5.4 mil in dead money but the production needs to be upped.
