I think several guys will be willing to restructure. Honestly the cap situation may be overblown on the Huddle. We were having these same kinds of posts a few years ago when we were way over, then Wharton restructured and we were like "Oh, ok."


You can't just restructure anyone though. It has to be someone who has a deal that's able to be restructured. What I mean by that is when you restructure any remaining signing bonus pro-rates immediately. That makes the chances of restructuring Beason and DeAngelo (the two biggest names thrown around) slim to none. I guess you could restructure Gamble or Gross, but are those guys we really should commit long-term to?

For the like 1,000th time, cutting Beason and DeAngelo does not save money. The only cuts we can make that save "significant" cap room are Gross and Gamble.....

To the OP's question.....no, Mike Wallace will get a contract that pays him an average of about 10-12 million per season....we can't afford that....


Williams saves money. Not all moves are made with only 2013 in mind.

I was referring to the idea of restructuring in order to sign Wallace, so my mind was only on 2013. Yes Williams saves money long-term, which is why I fully expect him to be somewhere else next year....

Gotcha. Yeah, we aren't getting a big game FA in 2013. We will have to work to create room for draft picks and mid tier FA bodies

This is the reason I think hiring Beane (if JR does that) is such a mistake. This team needs to draft better then just about everyone else the next two seasons to get where they want to. We need a talent evaluator, not a cap guys right hand man....

Well...luck always plays a factor. Can argue the degree but plenty of sure things aren't and gems are stumbled upon.

I think Rivera's draft classes where solid to date once you accept he had no choice but to attempt to make that DT run in 2011.

2010 was Hurney's class.

Everything else I personally believe was mainly Fox or Rivera.

Name the worst draft class of recent memory? Hunrey's IMO.

OT, DT not necessarily in that order. Then start looking for DB's.

I think we could have Jared Cook for a much more reasonable price than Wallace. Plus, a second good TE would vault our offense every bit as much as another receiver IMO.

Smitty is getting too old to keep thinking he can stay reliable. Health wise and productivity wise. It is a vertical passing/big play offense.

I agree on needing another TE though. We have been playing with fire far too long at WR.

Every single year people moan about the cap. Every single year we find a way to get under it and sign a couple of guys. Maybe not big names, but we find a way to get under it. Not worried.

Wallace is not the kind of person that we want on this locker room. He creates to much drama and our young team does not need that.

He would create 1/4 th the headaches Smitty does.....and Smitty is near perfect from what I hear here.

Mike Wallace just wants a contract. That is the drama with him. If Carolina could sign him....that drama is gone bc he has a deal here.
