But you can't provide any examples where that philosophy has hurt us.
We don't make a habit of paying for people who are no longer here. There was no dead money for players no longer on the roster in 2013.
Unless you're talking about paying Antonio Smith $8M in the last year of his contract & Wade Smith $5M in the last year of his when their salaries were much lower in the first years.....
But since you point to Gosder Cherilus' contract as a model of success, which is structured the exact same way.... that can't be what you're saying.
