I don't pretend to know the particulars of the NFL CBA, but I hate to see this team let Mario walk for nothing in return. I think the guy can make a big impact on this team still and hopefully at the right price. We have some nice young talent, but they aren't exactly proven.
A couple things:
1. Free Agents- The money not spent on Mario will likely be allocated to other free agents.
2. Depending on how many FAs we sign relative to how many we lose, Mario loss could net us a 3rd round compensatory pick.
