Can't give you specifics on this deal. But split one-year deals are commonly used with first and second-year players (or even vets), where they are signed for a minimum salary. But their contract is significantly dropped..........many times to 1/2 of the minimum.........if they end up on IR. Many times, these contract also only count ~1/2 the overall contract against the cap

Powe: "We're coming together"

NT Jerrell Powe talks about ending minicamp early, having David Quessenberry out at practice, getting on the same page before training camp, and more.

Pretty good read on Powe. Came out of high school with ADD & undiagnosed dyslexia. But ranked by Rivals as the #3 high school prospect in the country. Had a 3 year battle to get into college, playing his first game in 2008. Second team All-Eastern Conference in 2009 and 2010.

Photo shows he's stout but not a fatty as shown in post #4. Seems to have had a pretty good training camp and will be our starter until Nix returns. May prove to be a solid player for a two man rotation with Nix.

Thanks for the fix. I'm not a subscriber - I originally got there via Goggle. So perhaps a typo did creep in during the cut and paste operation. I, still, read the hardcopy of the paper. Not often, but occasionally, the Chron has something worthwhile.

Powe had a promising game. Lost discipline a few times, but better than the JAG I thought he might be.

Unless he explains it as something else, I'm pretty sure he's implying that JD and Watt played like 'men' and the other members of the defense were the 'women', ie useless or less-than-effective.

If thunderkyss meant otherwise, then fine, but otherwise it came across as a dumb sexist comment.

I guess I'm dumb & sexist, because that's exactly what I meant.

Until I see women playing this game at an all-pro level, I'll continue to be dumb & sexist.
