The way his contract is structured, it's a 1-year deal. We'd take a hit if we cut him this year but if we cut him next year, we gain cap space.

He's coming in as a back-up and because of his high football intelligence, as another coach in the QB room. He's a guy that can help get Savage ready or even help TJ/Case, if they need it. He's a guy that's been around and seen several systems.

4 million out of 130-140 million is really not that much. IIRC, he counts about as much against the cap as Jake Locker does.
