I really want to see p-rob play his natural man coverage this year behind a potentially solid 3-4 pass rush, I think he and Harper significantly improve in Rob Ryan's scheme
I agree. I wasn't ragging on Harper other than the money he's costing. He is what he is....I was mainly posting to draw attention to that article.I don't really know how much the team is over the cap now, especially if it is rising to 123 mil. I think they are presently about 12 million over...definitely could be wrong about that, though.
But when you look at some of the cap savings if some of the higher priced older guys were cut it doesn't appear nearly as dire. Let's you know if just three guys leave or else do a major reconstruction the team can get into positive cap territory just with those three.
If Tripp is right with his numbers and I'm close to right about what I think they are over, then if Vilma, Harper and Smith were cut outright we'd be about 9.5 million under the cap. Now I'm not advocating the release of these guys but it does make for interesting speculation, doesn't it? What I am advocating though is all three need to take some major pay cuts or leave.
