Kubiak loves Dreessen, but we couldn't afford to match his new contract.
We might even have to offer him a better contract since he's going home to Colorado.
He received a $2.5M signing bonus and a base salary of $1M this year.
We just don't have that much in cap room and extra budget for another TE.
We gave OD a $3M signing bonus just last year when we re-upped him.
Why would we want to cut him and waste even more investment money up front?
If we cut OD., we still don't have anybody to replace him when Graham gets injured.
