Put how ever you want. 1 player is coming up to contract time and the other has a cheap 2-3 year deal.
Seem like this is more of a money choice then a football choice.
So to clarify you think this is a masterful plan to convince Martin to sign for less next offseason and then put him back as the starter? If we plan on letting him walk why not let Martin(if he truly is the better option)play the year out and then let him walk if we can't afford him? To avoid backlash from the fan base??
If Hurney has done anything since being here, its been finding away to pay of all of our players who produce.
If you really feel that way this is more than an indictment against Hurney, it also says very bad things about Rivera too.
