I mispoke. The fact remains, that we did not sign Ed Reed for a $1M less (for 2013) than the Lions signed Quin.
Signing Reed (in lieu of Quin) has little to do with saving cap space this year, or "saving money for Cushing" next year either. Reed's cap number is more than Quins in both years.
Yes, he can be cut for the 2015 season if needed to pay Watt, or if he decides to retire, or if flat out can't play.
