Signed a 3 year $10.5M deal with $3M guaranteed and a $1.5M signing bonus.

2011: $2M salary l $500K bonus
2012: $3M salary l $500K bonus
2013: $4M salary l $500K bonus

After the signing bonus there's an extra $1.5M that's guaranteed. Likely some of that was in his first year's salary. But WORST case scenario his contract reads "$1.5M of 2012 salary is guaranteed". So if we cut him, we owe him that plus the $1M unallocated signing bonus for a total of $2.5M.

That's still a $1M cap savings worst case scenario. If we do lose him do need to sign a WR and a PR. So that factors into the cost benefit thought process.

Best case scenario, $1.5M of his 2011 salary was fully guaranteed. In that event we'd only be on the hook for $1M this season and that'd be a $2.5M savings in 2012 and definitely would help more in 2013.

True... I bet the front office waits until the draft. If we draft a good WR we may cut him then. That would honestly be the smart move. Unless we're going after Wayne or another FA WR.

In every organization there are people like Jacoby Jones. They are worthless and fail time after time.

However, the higher ups just like the guy for reasons no one else can figure out. Meanwhile, good productive people become budget cut casualties.

The garbage guy still survives cut after cut and the rest of the employees just scratch their heads.

This is a sad reality in today's world. Sometimes being a failure does pay.

Finally, someone backing things up with facts.

No way could we sign a #3 receiver AND a punt returner of his caliber for $2.5mm. I'd rather keep him and not have to worry about replacements. I'm more concerned about finding an OLB to replace Mario, as well as keeping our OL as intact as possible.

100 percent spot on. And it doesn't just apply to just sports. I have witnessed that in action at more than one place I have worked. I have seen solid, productive, contributors get laid off while lazy, "likeable" people are saved. It's one of the reasons why I'm sick of office politics and want to run my own business. But that's another story.
