I def understand all of this but how often do we spread the wealth and pick up talent on either side of the ball? Its been a long time fellas... Im a die hard fan and I truly think our young corner talents will pan out, end of the season the D was great so I have hope but, injures plague every team, and def. us... but I feel what you 2 are saying, just hate to see him go, he has talent...


Well, new GM and hopefully he can steer the ship in the right direction.

That's true and I understand Anderson has talent. I like the guy, but it's the same thing with Williams and Stewart. Both guys are awesome people and have talent, but the team would probably have been better off if we had made the hard decision and let one of them go be awesome and talented elsewhere.

I just don't understand, could we not just trade Anderson? In the entire NFL, we couldn't find a team willing to trade


teams don't want average guys with non-average contracts.

anyway, no disrespect to Anderson with the JAG talk.

He was one of the good guys. Did his job. No trouble. Reached out to the fanbase. Hurney's fault IMO we lose a good one.

I can't think of the last time a 4-3 outside linebacker was traded. Just not a position that moves the needle a lot.

No one wants a part of that contract.

It's better to eat the dead money now. If we keep putting off debt then we'll continually be handcuffed. Gettlemen said he wanted to be "thoughtful" towards the future and not designating this as a June 1st cut falls in line with that mantra. I know we all want to be in win now mode, but in reality we made need one more year before we can get to that point. This year I'd be happy to have a winning record or sneak into the wild card, which is still possible.

Crazy move. Doesn't help us now. Might help us later.

With the recent transition to the pass-first NFL, teams run a base 4-3 or 3-4 defense less than ever. Teams need to put more corners on the field to cover 3 and 4 receiver sets. Cutting Anderson frees up some money to replace Gamble and Munnerlyn and I think it's a smart move.

So this may have already been answered, but can you cut a player NOW and designate him as a future (June 1st) cut?
