The team spent about 1.5 million when it cut Keo the first time, because his rookie contract had that guaranteed money on it. Bullock is going to be the same way, and then instead of just continuing to pay him his 500k or whatever it is, you'll be hiring another guy to spend another 250k on for the rest of the season. That money could otherwise be rolled over to next year and spent on a team that has a chance of winning something.

Also, hanging on to Bullock and cutting him next year gives the team the option of making him a June 1st cut, and spreading out the caphit if needed.
While I understand what you're saying, I just cant stand the thought of having to watch fat Randy blowing games for the rest of the season.
