I hate to see Anderson go bc he is a solid player but I like that Gettleman is setting the tone for this team. Average outside linebackers aren't going to be paid like great ones. He's talked about setting a standard for what each position will be paid...and he's backing that up. Hurney paid "core" guys tons of money no matter what position they played.

Good decision, frees up some money and doesn't have a place since cutting/trading Beason isn't realistic with his bonus....

With Beason and Davis, I'm not sure that I agree with this...

Darin Gantt probably has a smug response about this.

Best of luck James in wherever you land, you were one of the few guys who seemed to give his all in the shitstorm that was the 2010 season and we could always count on you to be on the field.

Hurney's "core" is getting whittled away.

According to Spotrac, his cap hit was $4.2 million.

if this number is true it was a good move if we use this money to land a above average cb or S

Makes sense of the Panthers working out the OLB from Mizzou

It makes perfect sense. Been discussed before on here a while back. Beason's contract would have been the better one to get off the books but because of the structure it was damn near impossible. Somebody had to go and he had one of the highest cap hits and if we are moving beason to the outside he was quite expendable.

Now just go re-sign Jason Phillips for depth and I am happy.

This does not make LB a need, he was the 4th best LB on the team.


Makes me think we are targeting a free agent...

yup, I think we'll add one or two through FA and a late round draft pick.
Beason is coming off another injury and we're holding our breath every time TD make a tackle.
Have no depth behind the starting three. We'd be in trouble if one of them go down.

Yas blogged that this only frees up 200k unless they designate him a June 1 release
