If he's not willing to do that, then I think they have to cut him. 4.5 million could go a long way though. Some other WRs that will be free agents:
Or maybe target a new NT like Henry Melton or Alan Branch. Either way, I'm sure that money could be put to better use.
Good thinking, I'd like to pick up a level two corner or safety as a vet backup. Not '13 draft but soon after we need to pick guys to eventually replace Manning and Joseph.
