According to Person we're keeping Williams...

2013 Cap hits

Cam+ Stewart+ Tolbert = roughly 11 mill

Rivera's 2nd favorite RB = 8 mill

Yeah, keeping Williams and not asking him to rip up his deal or be cut makes tons of sense.

if we keep williams, it has to be done.

I'm sure that there's some way it could be worked out so that williams is kept without much work on his contract, but it would bite us in the butt elsewhere. mathematics can not be defied. we have a cap and to keep him, esp. with that contract means sacrifices to other positions would have to be made and you have to ask...is it worth it to keep him? i say no...not at that price and with his reduced role and the other options available.

he is just too easily and cheaply replaceable.

CRA your missing the point completely.

Heres your options in their simplest form.

A. Cut him now and eat the 1.6 million and be done with it.

B. Cut him a June 1st cut and save 3.8 million this year but carry over 4.6 million in dead money next year.(this is stealing from paul(2014 cap) to pay peter(2013 cap).

C.Cut him next year as a non june 1st cut and be done with it completey and still save 3.8 million in 14.

D. Magically find a way to restructure him in spite of the immense difficulties because of the signing bonus Hurney gave him and keep him for another 2-3 years at a smaller cap hit.

B. Create some pretty significant cap space in 2013 AND 2014.

Use the room to get someone who can start at a real area of need. OL, DT, S, CB for example.....

Point is Williams' role is too small for his cap hitS. It cost us at other spots. We don't want Nakamura's starting in order to have great RB depth.

3/5 of our OL takes up the cap space of Williams' lunch money. It just is a bad deal for us.

B creates 4.6 million dead money in 14, thats 800k more than we are saving in 13. So have the cap room now and fug ourselves in the future is what you wanna do.

Pay him 9.6 million over the next 2 years(4.8 million per year in 13 and 14) to never play another down for us

If we are going the June 1st route to save money then its a million times better to do it next year.

The option I prefer

If we cut him in 14 we save 6 million in 14 and 7 million in 15. Thats 21 million in savings . 11.5 million per year savings in 2 years

The option you prefer

If we cut him now we save 3.8 million in 13 and 4.6 million in 14 and 10.2 million in 15 thats 18.6 million savings over 3 years. 6.2 million per year savings over 3 years

tl; dr save 21 million in cap hits thru 15 and get to keep him for 13. or save 18.6 million in cap hits through 2015 and he never plays another down.

Yeah, it creates dead money but it also creates ROOM....now and the future.

I'd rather have room to have a quality lineman or secondary player...whether he is on the roster or not we will pay Williams to essentially not play pending our roster is healthy. Not enough reps for you not to basically be paying him to sit.

I'm fine with it but we need to actually give him and Stew carries, properly utilized of course.

Our QB should never lead the team in rushing.

Ok so you would rather create 18 million in room over 3 years and lose him immediately than creating MORE ROOM (21 million) over that same time span all while getting 1 more year out of him.

I'd rather not have Nakamura's on the roster just so we have the luxury of only giving a VERY expensive RB 8 carries a game.

If you want to keep all these RBs....don't complain when this years version of Nakamura cost us time after time.

Who said Williams role is gonna stay the same next year? Chud is gone, we are gonna run the ball more with our RBs. You cant determine the future off the past.
