I also question whether it would be wise to have Antonio carrying $6+mm cap hits for the next two years when we have Watt, Cushing and Jackson to re-sign.
With Watt on the d-line we are probably going to have to go bargain basement at the other two positions in order to have a prudent and balanced allocation of the cap.
