Ahman Green and Morlon Greenwood released. My spirit is crushed.
Mine is oddly lifted.
I'm teenking uv d positive u ponderin da evil.
u wonder why u life iz so miza-rabble.
Morlon izza rappa AKA De Ultimate. Maybe he and James Allen (Mersilis) can be a duet?
Well I do want to say thanks to Ahman. Not so much for his contribution on the field, but for being a part of the donor that got that lady into a home for herself and young son with Autism. Classy move, Mr. Green.
I guess this goes to show you how confident the staff is in Adibi and Diles. It's kind of exciting.
I was also a big supporter of Greenwood, but he really let me down this season. Addition by subtraction. Hello cap money
I feel like I just passed two kidney stones.
Its interesting to me that only these 2 were released right away. This tells me a few things:
1. They liked what they saw in Abidi
2. They are waiting to see what happens with DE over the FA period and draft before making a decision on Weaver
Very good news, we continue to trim the fat. Anyone know how much cap space this is going to clear and how long these contracts will be on the books?
Here's to no more batman talk or horrible Jamaican rapping!
I'm not sure if this is updated or not. Green restructured last season, right.
If I'm reading Kieth's cap page correctly we'll clear around 12.8 in cap space. Is this correct?
.....The happiness i feel at this moment is 2nd only to the birth of my children.
...now lets keep it moving with 1 Mr. Petey "toasties" Faggins & Anthony "do-nothing-for-alot" Weaver. If they made this happen i'd already be excited for next season...
Greenwoods contract expires in 09. He was scheduled to earn 6.3 million this year. I think we save about 5 million by cutting him with 1.5 million in dead money this year only
Green's contract ends in 2010, and he was scheduled to make 6.6 million. I think we save around 4 million by cutting him with around 2 million in dead money this season. I don't know how much his 2010 guaranteed money was supposed to be, but its got to be very small (his original contract only had like 6 or 7 million guaranteed and I think we've already paid close to that amount)
So who are they drafting or picking up behind Slaton now?
Green restructured, but only for last season and only his base salary. We will clear 12.8 in cap space but incur about 3.5 in dead money this season
Well, we still have Chris Brown......
Cool. I'm not real familiar with understanding cap issues.
Not bad considering we went from having double digits in dead money in 2007 to around 1 million before this I think.
Say what you want, but our cap management has been light years ahead of our first regime. Obviously.
Err, Chris Taylor?
