Makes sense, he wasn't all that great and cost a lot of money while we have good backups already.


Yup, Im not surprised by this move at all. Hes nothing but someone who racks up a bunch of tackles after 4-5 yards gainer. Hes no Will Witherspoon or Thomas Davis.

Probably a good move. James Anderson is a smidge overrated by some of our fans. Hate to see him go though

Anyone know how much cap money this frees up?

Can we now talk Jarvis Jones at 14 if hes still on the board?

I can't find his contract details anywhere.

His Bonus was 4 million. So whatever is left of that will be accelerated.

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...

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.
