I'd take the full hit this year, save cap space for next.

beason was the better choice to keep. costs more to keep but also more expensive to unload and has a higher upside than anderson. also, from a teammate/leader standpoint, beason is more important.

Sucks. JA was another one of my favorite guys. Really good player who also is a really good dude off the field and always took time to engage fans. I don't really get cutting him, he wasn't making a ton of money and at the least would be a "4th starter" as depth. Man, these last few days have been depressing.

It's a future move I would guess. We can't afford to pay a "4th Starter" starters money for multiple future seasons with everything we need ot get. If Gettleman turns this space into a corner or tackle, it helps the team a lot more.

It does suck we had to cut him though because he was a nice guy and engaging. All the best to him, and hope he finds a good job somewhere else.

Gettleman obviously saw what I was trying to tell you folks last year. Anderson is a liability on the field. He is a step behind in coverage and will not take on blocks to help his teammates. Great move, he is not starter material.

He had the 9th highest cap hit on the team. A "4th starter" can't account for that kind of hit. Granted his dead money is still the 9th highest cap hit, but it was about the future as well.

Doesn't this give Beason leverage in not taking a pay cut?

Shouldn't we have done that first?

Either way, I don't have a problem with the move. What's it net us financially?

I think they just cut DJ Williams and might cut Dummervil, so it'd make sense (Although I think Dummervil may have played more end last season).
