His cap hit would go to $3.83 for a savings of almost 6 mil. Same savings as cutting him and keep the player.
Please see above. You clearly just don't like Smith wanting to cut him in every thread. My proposal makes much more sense for the team.
Or maybe I watched teams (pats,colts,packers) block watt and work the secondary like old main st. JJ had what, half the teams sacks? Antonio is a solid player, dummerville is a all pro,pro bowl caliber player. Not only that,he's younger and he knocks the qb down. He improves your secondary big time. You take smith money and give it to the better player.
