1.keep Shaub /Clowney/ 1st pick
2.pick #33 rookie QB that BOB likes
The new coach has not even seen a TEXAN QB throw the ball. Shaub/Case/or T.J.Yates.
Theres my $1.25
We're not "giving" Schaub $10M to go away. That money was given to him 2 years ago, we just have to account for it on the books. If we keep him through the remainder of his contract we're scheduled to account for it in $3.5M increments this year, 2015, & 2016. Cutting him forces us to accelerate how & when we account for it.
If he stays, we'll be giving him $10M of new money to "hopefully" perform better than last year. Given his performance over the last 18 months, it's highly unlikely that he'll perform to the standard $10M suggests. It really wouldn't be "smart" to give him $10M after what he did last season.
Of course some QBs performed just as bad & will be getting more.... Ryan, Romo, Eli, Flacco..... Ben, but that's another story.
