Surely . But my gut says you might not be.

If the reports we're hearing about 'meco & Jacoby are sound, then there's something stirring. If it's just to sign Mario, then I agree. That might be that "at all cost" clause that's been discussed.

If not, it's going to be interesting.

Hope this doesn't come across as cruel, but this is the most exciting off season to date, or is it just me?

Default Re: Jerome Solomon reporting Demeco and Jacoby are supposedly being cut tomorrow

If it only saves 900k this year (Ryans)...maybe it saves more in later years. If FO was "embarrassed" to ask Winston to take a pay cut then they would be "really embarrassed" to ask Ryans. Very interesting night to say the least. I think if they cut Ryans he would not get anywhere the same amount of cash from any other team considering his injury. If this goes down Rick needs a rap or mafia type nickname. This FO has never ever been so aggressive in terms of cutting players (starters under 30).

Your friend probably tuned into 610 when they had Solomon on and listened in mid-conversation. Barry Warner threw out the suggestion of cutting Demeco instead of Winston and Solomon echoed the words "cut Demeco" quite a bit after that. He wasn't saying they should but ran with that scenario instead of letting go of Winston.

Lat year was like that first line of coke exciting because it was so compressed due to the lockout.

Cutting Demeco would actually save $2.1 mil on the cap. And, if they called it a post June 1st cut, it would save about $4.5 million on this year's cap.

Default Re: Jerome Solomon reporting Demeco and Jacoby are supposedly being cut tomorrow

When they cut Winston, it made perfect sense that the next one to be chopped would be Demeco.

It proves that they do not pay for what a player did before, as in some kind of reward. You are paid for what you are expected to do in the future. If you get injured, and that injury diminishes those future expectations, expect to get cut.

I don't know when the NFL ever transitioned from "what have you done for me lately" to some kind of "let's reward you for what you used to be".

Way too much misplaced loyalty if you ask me. There's just no place for it in a salary-cap.

Wouldn't they have to wait until June 1st to see the savings on the cap? What would that accomplish?
