Nakamura Pay Cut

Yea this is surprising. But i trust Gettleman. Naka was pretty much the scapegoat for the start of our losing streak. Pretty decent special teamer and heady player, but damn please don't put him in crucial situations or regular situations for that matter.

This is a good example of why I come to the Huddle. I wanted him cut in spite of it all but after hearing the pros and cons; I can see the logic.

To be clear, this doesn't guarantee he makes the roster.

I think you guys are way too hard on Nak. The play that lost us the ATL game he went for the pick in front of White and misjudged it. I really appreciate that he tried to make a play on the ball, sometimes ya get beat fellas

Yea you dont go for a pick in that situation. too risky.

Good. He doesn't deserve to get paid as a defensive starter, but as a POSSIBLE starter and a solid ST contributor? I'll take that.

I'm patiently waiting to see now if Anderson, Beason, DWill, and Gross restructure.

he's a scrub. pretty much getting paid like a scrub. won't be counting against the cap since i doubt that number puts him in the top 53.

he'll be fighting for a roster spot in training camp and it will be a sad commentary on the state of the secondary if he makes the final 53.

Not really a big deal but for accuracy sake he will def. be a top 51 cap hit(the bottom 2 don't affect us).

Surprised he wasn't just cut outright, but I'm thinking Gettleman is bringing in some safety help either thru the draft of FA so, having him around as competition/special teams could be worse.

Cut him and you have to replace him.

Just as easy to take him to camp and let him sink or swim there.

Guy is smart. Just not athletic enough for the position.

He's worth keeping for ST play IMO.

meh, he cost us on ST this year as well...

I think at this point he is camp fodder

Good ST and situational defensive player, makes sense to keep him around for the right price.

I'd agree.

i doubt that we go into training camp with his number being among the top. at least two draft picks will have cap numbers higher than him and we'll probably have a FA pick up or two that will likely have a higher number.
