I think releasing him isnt an option ATM..due to his contract.


If im wrong there.. and we could release him right now with no penalties.. then I still think its a bad move.

there is room on the PUP and there isnt much point in releasing him as long as there is SOME small inkling of a chance that he could possibly at some time maybe recover.... like 1%..

1% is better than releasing him and having 0% though.

lets put it like this he is on his last chance. He might even be asked to re-structure his deal to make it more team friendly but at this point we are not in a situation where we need the cap room and he doesn't have a big cap hit so there isn't much risk. If he can't play at least 9 games next season then he needs to go and we need to find a long term solution. I think by the time the draft rolls around we should know enough and will probably draft someone to compete with him anyways.

What could there possibly be to restructure? Isn't he going into the last year of his rookie contract (and without playing a single down, makes me want to cry when i think of it) and aren't last years generally pretty cheap? Either that or ridiculously expensive once they get that FAT CASH on their second contract.

It seems to me like we've already lost a pile on this guy and if we keep him one more season just to see if maybe, just maybe this terrible run of luck is over we risk losing what? A pile of money + 2 bits for this season? Let him hang around if for no other reason than morbid curiosity. I want to see what a TE who's been out three years plays like. I want to see if it's possible for a player to play all the way through his rookie deal without ever seeing the field. Humor me.

If he actually gets healthy they'll probably just stick the minimum tender on him and give him a chance. If he blows it...he's cut. Shouldn't be an issue as long as we don't pass on a good TE thinking he will be the savior.

His bonus is paid and he gets it cut or on the IR, regardless. He is only banging the cap for $380,000 this year in base salary so he is worth keeping to see if he can make the roster healthy next year. It's really not costing much money or a roster spot so it just makes sense to hang on to him and try it again next year.
