Default Re: Are the Texans trading for Dwayne Bowe?

For the capaologist around here, what cap relief, if any, is there when placing a player on IR.

Good point, not sure but I would think Cushing's pay would not count against the cap for the rest of the year. If we just wanted to trade for a player for the rest of this year and then let him go then no harm done. Of course I would not give much for a one year rental but if it helps us to the super bowl then a mid round would work for me.

Pretty much none. All guaranteed money and salary for the year count against the cap, any prorated signing bonuses also count against the cap. The only thing that may be affected are incentive bonuses that don't get earned for obvious reasons.

We lost Mario in Week 5 last year, and of course we didn't get 18 million dollars to play with. Too bad though, would be nice to have the room.

Man that blows, I thought if they have a chance of coming back then yes no releif, like PUP or something but when you lose them for the year and eliminate them from returning then you get releif, at least in my eyes that seems fair.

yeah... You may be right, that there are no reasonably-priced, studly ILBs or OTs on the open market right now. But I'd save up my picks just in case someone becomes available.

And Bowe would be getting starter's money... so do you guys seriously see him supplanting K.W. or A.J. as a starter?? Do you REALLY see that happening??

Bowe stats are equal to AJs so easily supplant Walter. He could supplant AJ when he retires or becomes a WR2. I think he would prolong Johnson's career as Bowe would take coverage from AJ more than anyone we have now.

I think if we were trading for Bowe, we would have pulled the trigger by now. They'd want him learning the offense as soon as possible

Are we talking about career, or this season? Andre is having a down season.

I personally think Bowe is talented & could possibly replace AJ, but I wouldn't bet on it. I wouldn't mind having him, then we'll be hoping that Aj returns to form, Posey develops into a true 1b, or Bowe develops into a true 1b... I like them odds.
