$1.3M against the 2013 cap. $4.something against the 2014 cap. $2.something dead money if he's cut in 2015...
Sorry, we should have been able to make that deal. Start Merci on the weakside. Start Connor on the strong side. Start Brooks inside. He can still rotate with Merci & Connor on 3rd down, it actually gives you the ability to disguise your 4th rusher on third downs.
Reed can line up at ILB & we can show a 3 man front; Connor, Watt, Antonio (inside the tackle). At the snap, Antonio can rush around & Reed shoot up the middle.... or Antonio can crash down on the Tackle & Guard & Reed can shoot around the outside.
