If the pass rush gets fixed, we don't need Jjo to play so well. McCain would even look better.
For a $10M cap hit we need him to look as good on the field as he does on paper. Especially knowing there are 22 corners playing better.
If we don't cut him, it would be in our best interest to renegotiate, kick some of that money down the line bringing his cap hit down to the $3M-$5M range, again providing cap relief while aligning his expected performance with his cap number.
