Sweet. I was worried about it getting locked in. If JJ being cut can really save in the mid 4 mil range, and Leinart 2m, has to be done, no?

I would expect JJ to be gone. Not sure about Leinart though, he can compete for the second spot still.

EDIT: Also, would cutting Kevin Walter put a lot of dead money in the salary for this coming year? I think there might be better options in free agency for around the same amount of money...

I take this to mean that with contracts for the 2012 league year right now - we are still over the new cap number for 2012.

I also take this as Mario does not count anything to the 2012 league year or any other player that will be a free agent tomorrow has any $$ included in the 4.7 mill over the cap figure.

So we are over the cap already and still need to sign a center (Myers) a guard (briesel) and others.

We are in deep dirt Francis.

I expect Walter to remain on roster with his great hands, precise route running and very good blocking. I'd still like to pick up 2 WRs in draft.

Best option would be to restructure Walter. He's a bit overpaid, but still a valuable cog to the team.

How are you going to cut Leinart when Schaub's health is still an issue? We don't know if he'll be ready to play week 1. We won't be going into the season with Tj & a rook as two of our three QBs.

Not at all. He stated Sanchez restructure wasn't taken into account.

In fact, he explicitly stated:

the Vikings will have more space as of Monday, due to the termination of the contracts of several players.

Termination is not the same as expiration. Mario is an expiring contract, but the Vikings terminated, that is released/waived, those players. The Texans have not terminated any contracts that I know of.

Quote:
The Vikings released left guard Steve Hutchinson, right guard Anthony Herrera and cornerback Cedric Griffin, saving more than $13 million for this year by jettisoning three players who've been in their starting lineup for the better part of the past five seasons or more.

Don't get me wrong, Walter is very good at what he does. However, with the money you could save from JJ and Walter combined you could get a really good player that can excel at both. Then you might also want to draft one.

I would like to see Walter restructure his deal though ideally, but I think he would have already if he was going to.

I'm not too high on UDFA WRs. In my dream, I see Manning bringing Reggie Wayne here for 2-3 years and we draft either Floyd or Wright. Floyd to replace AJ eventually or Wright as perfect slot who can also be a flanker.

I think a vet cheaper than Leinert can be signed to be 3rd string.

What I don't understand is how this team has had one year of success and are now in cap hell when teams that have been winning for 20 plus years are just fine.

If no one else will say it I will, Rick Smith is an awful GM. He had one good draft out of 6. This all falls on his shoulders and no one else's. If he could manage the cap better we wouldn't have to lose players that would keep us winning more than one season.

Our secondary is still a hot mess but somehow Phillips made it work last year. Do you realize how many secondary personnel we have drafted over the last 6 years and still the best we could come up with is someone elses CB, a tandem team to start opposite JJO, and moving a starting CB to safety?

Smiths drafts and personnel decisions have been not just awful but God awful.

You can't tell me someone in his position shouldnt have seen this coming sooner and made plans for this sort of thing well in advance.

The 2006 draft was a great one. (Rick wasn't here)

2009, Great draft (Rick gets credit

2011 Great draft (Wades draft)

Rick has been subpar, overall not terrible but certianly not what you're making him out to be.

By no means am I defending Rick's drafting capabilities, all I'm saying is look at the state of our franchise and makeup of our team. Rick Smith is the GM, so he owns that. A terrible GM doesn't put together a team like ours.

7 Troy Nolan Safety Arizona State (good value, back up safety)

2010

1 Kareem Jackson Cornerback Alabama (Starting to show his promise none of the CB's taken after him played better last year)
2 Ben Tate Running back Auburn (starting calibre RB)
3 Earl Mitchell Defensive tackle Arizona (Great Back up will be better at DE)
4 Darryl Sharpton Linebacker Miami (FL) (good value and great back up)
4 Garrett Graham Tight end Wisconsin (Still waiting, injuries have hurt him)
5 Sherrick McManis Cornerback Northwestern (appropriate value here)
6 Shelley Smith Offensive guard Colorado State (Has good potential, good value)
6 Trindon Holliday Wide receiver LSU (Was a risky pick)
7 Dorin Dickerson Tight end Pittsburgh (Good value just didn't seem to work out)

2011

1 J. J. Watt Defensive End Wisconsin (FREAK)
2 Brooks Reed Linebacker Arizona (LIGIT)
2 Brandon Harris Cornerback Miami (FL) (N/A)
4 Rashad Carmichael Cornerback Virginia Tech (N/A)
5 Shiloh Keo Safety Idaho (meh)
5 T. J. Yates Quarterback North Carolina (ummm YES!!!!)
7 Derek Newton Offensive tackle Arkansas State (good back up)
7 Cheta Ozougwu Defensive end Rice (meh)

Overall it seemed like the first few years was exactly like any rebuilding team, looking for projects and that diamond in the rough.
The last 3 years have all be good drafts though.

Considering he also brought in A.Smith, JJo, D.Manning, Schaub, W.Smith, S.Cody, J.Allen.
And found Foster.

Rick smith for me his one of the better GM in the league
