    Wiegert dead $$$ = $2.5 million. The exact amount of what he was scheduled to make in salary for '07.

    Not unexpected but our OTs going as of now are: Spencer (injured), Salaam, Winston, Bedell. That's a scary thought.

    Hmmm....makes one wonder why he was cut. He could've at least been used for depth.:drunk:

    I like the guy as a player, but I hope you're right. He's way to expensive for what we get out of him.

    I know he's old and "not good", but I wonder if Salaam will be asked back on the cheap...for depth, of course.

    Has Bedell ever gotten into a game? I remember seeing him on the sidelines a lot last season.

    I think he actually counted for $3.125 million against the cap. ($2.5 mil salary, $625,000 allocated bonus)

    So we would save $625,000 in cap room.

    We should give it to some hobo and have them be our punter. Couldn't be worse than Stanley.

    He came in for a few plays when Salaam got hurt during a game. I can't remember which one, but if I remember right he got abused pretty well while he was in there.

    This is the one of the sad parts to the game. Zach was/is an absolutely stand up guy, the kind that anyone would be proud to be on a team with.

    Thanks Zach for everything and best of luck to you in the future...this Texan fan will always by a Wiegert fan.
