While there have been some different reports about his payouts, the total value of the contract is definitely 10.5 million over 3 years. 4 million this year makes sense given what we know, so saving 4 million in salary this year isn't unlikely.
I disagree. While the numbers have been very difficult to nail down regarding any bonus, and the timing of the guaranteed money, the things we have seen with relative consistency are:

Guaranteed Money - $3 Million
2012 Base Salary - $3 Million
2013 Base Salary - $4 Million

Again, none of these have been shown to be absolutely correct, but I do think they say your $4 Million saving number is in fact unlikely, and in fact, it isn't unlikely that the 2012 cap savings would be less than $3 Million.

Was it regarding the delays in signing our other FAs? I wasn't involved in any contract negotiations with anyone, but from what the reports/rumors were, we made offers to Brisiel and Myers and allowed them to find other offers if they could. We weren't waiting until Mario signed. At least that's my impression of what happened.

Maybe people thought we should have traded Mario at the beginning of the season. Yeah, we could have gotten something for him, but we were going to a new defense after coming off a horrendous season. They would have been vilified if they had gotten rid of him. At the time the team didn't know what they had in Barwin (going into his 3rd year and missed all of last season) or Reed (a rookie drafted in the 2nd round). They also didn't know if we'd have Cushing from 2009 or the one from 2010. Plus, Demeco was coming off a season ending injury himself.

What the fans here want is to have a GM that can accurately see the future. I realize they need to be able to do that to some extent, but to bash them for not getting rid of Mario is shortsighted.
MW was all about the $$$$. (Why else would he choose to play in Buffalo?)

Unfortunately the Texans didn't have the $$$$ to re-sign MW/Foster/Myers. So MW had to go.

Ok, say it is 3 million, that's a 1.5 million difference than cutting Winston. That 3 would have put them under the cap, given that we know they took on 750k more in dead money for trading Demeco, and signed another punter for 800k this year. And now that La Canfora posted our cap numbers, we know they have 3.6 million in free space, which means the Winston cut probably wasn't even necessary to get under the cap. It's more likely that they made the cut to free up money to sign Myers, but missed out on an opportunity to get something in return for Winston.
