Hardy and Lafell

67 posts in this topic

Are we going to have enough cap space to sign these guys next year? Well and maybe Byron Bell if he continues to get better?

I ain't gonn lie to ya son. There are a myriad of ways to gain cap space. So the answer is, yes, if we want,

Gettlemen says he wants big guys and TD makers. Hardy qualifies, Lafell, not so much. And Bell better improve like nobodies bidness if he wants another contract.

Hardy is the only player getting a bigish contract next year. Gettlemen will offer him a fair contract. Whether a flake like Hardy will accept it is anyones guess. I say, flake or not, he will want to stay.

Lafell may warrant more than the vet minimum, so this one is up in the air. Again, he will get a fair offer. If he thinks it is fair, he will stay. If he thinks he merits more money, he may test the FA market. I just don't see many teams trying to pry him away with a big money deal. He is good at what he does, but good does not warrant big money anymore.

Bell has almost no chance of being a starter after this year. He will get the vet minimum as depth.

And lastly, not another one of these crappy threads? Search is your friend. Or try actually reading some of the threads on cap space. jk, or am I ?

Why would it be a problem to fit LaFell and his veteran minimum under the cap? Ok, maybe not that little but I cannot see him making more tham $2-3M.

Hardy thinks he is the best DE every. Hate to lose him but he will get his payday elsewhere. Maybe, maybe we can frontload and keep him (hit the year before cams extention), but that is unlikly.

We are the team that finally decided to take a chance on him in the 6th... at that point guys start to get worried if they are even going to get drafted. Rivera (if I were to guess) motivated Hardy the past offseason to get his ass in the weight room to put on some serious beef, and it sure as hell paid dividends. If he has another good year we'll offer him a contract in the 8-11 mil range and he'd be crazy not to take it.

Lafell should be offered 3mil/year. I think that would be a fair amount.

The rate we're going we might just cut, Gross and CJ. And still be over the cap.

I don't mind releasing Gross. Sucks to see him go, but he's been overrated the past couple of years. His best days are behind him.

I would hate to lose Hardy, but we do have Alexander behind him who has looked pretty good.

Cams going into his 3rd year we have him through year 5 plus franchise tags if it gets to that

Would we really want to Franchise Cam? How would he react to it?

I think Cam could be seeing big bucks as soon as the end of 2013 going into 2014.
