Default DAL WR Miles Austin potential cap casualty Per Schefter

Rotoworld Football ‏@Rotoworld_FB
Report: Miles Austin could be a cap casualty http://dlvr.it/304R6V


Quote:
ESPN's Adam Schefter considers Miles Austin a "potential salary cap casualty" in the "coming days."
Releasing Austin would save the Cowboys $5 million versus the cap. Dallas was expected to approach Austin about a restructured contract after the season. With Schefter's report coming at this point in time, it's fair to wonder if Austin turned down a proposed pay cut. Austin is still an effective No. 2 and slot receiver, but lower-leg injuries have sapped his explosion and vertical speed.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
Cowboys would save $3.6 million against their salary cap if they released WR Miles Austin. The team is roughly $18 million over the cap.

I think Miles would be a good addition here. Maybe not a replacement for Andre, but definitely a piece that could help us now as opposed to waiting for a rookie to develop.

Mister NFL Owners,

After very careful consideration, sirs, I've come to the conclusion that your new salary cap system sucks.

Signed,

Fans of teams with owners willing to pay to win.

I like it when people point to a player who will be a cap casualty and say he'd be great on our team....which is barely under the cap, as well.

To be honest, I'm looking at Miles as an underappreciated asset. Hopefully we can land him for somewhere around $4M. I don't know where we're going to find $4M. However, after reading some news the last few days, it appears that other teams will be looking at Austin & I don't think it would be to our benefit to get into a bidding war.

Since we are struggling with the cap, I'm looking for cheap.

cheap, cheap, cheap.

I would take him here in a heartbeat, not for his current money, but I would definitely figure something out.

All Rick Smith has to do is tell Austin's agent that he'll have Matt Schaub throwing to him and Gary Kubiak calling the plays...oh wait, that means one wild card win and then an ouster in the divisional round.

Well, Romo isn't getting his WRs to the playoffs at all, so maybe he'd go for that sales pitch!

I remember when Atlanta was thinking the same thing. Then something funny happened. They realized just because you never won a play off game with the current head coach & the current QB doesn't mean they can't win in the play offs. It just meant they hadn't until then.

HC & QB. You agreed that it all starts with them.

Put Austin on the Falcons...or put him on the Texans.

Which team would use him better???
