That's only relevant as far as cap number goes.
We can offer three people a $9M contract as long as we can get their cap numbers below $9M.
Like Glover Quin. He signed a 5 years $23M contract. $5M signing bonus. With a $1M salary, his cap hit for 2013 was only $2M.
We can sign 4 guys to contracts like that with $9M....
Then we can & will cut Schaub.
ANYBODY but Glover Quin! A open space in the defense is better than he, because others will fill in to do the job Quin was supposed to do. His mere presence on the field throws away games.
ROSENCOPTER, but not Glover Quin!
