they'll probably end up re-signing him for the paycut agreed deal though

Nope, dead money from his previous contract limits that.

im looking at you Beason...

you to Gross

Beason SEEEEEEEEEEERIOUSLY needs to. Gross isn't worth what he's getting paid, and it's at the point now where it's too late if either did take a cut. We can't even afford Antoine Cason.

He's a DE.

He's taking a pay cut so that his team, which is very close to a SB, can bring in another guy to help them.

What motivation is there for Beason or Gross?

None for Gross.

Shouldn't of not cut JA....made DWill a June 1 and told Beason to take a paycut or join DWill. Even if a bluff, we could of made him call it. Gettlemen is taking the long approach out of these bad deals that are handicapping us. We could be getting out sooner....improving....even if there are more ideal scenarios. We still pay a price short term for waiting them all out

Definitely disappointed in Gross and Beason not restructuring their contracts. DWill's contract is a killer for us obviously but not sure what would help us there (I assumed we would try and trade one of him or Stewart at some point but that looks impossible with Stewart being hurt and Williams crazy Hurney contract). Charles Johnson although one of the few impact players we have on defense is overpaid as well IMO.

I understand the players point of view (no one wants to give up money) but I'd think the motivation is to look where they've been in their profession the last number of years and want to do something to help the team be better but $$$ is what it's all about on every side.

No one wants to trade for one of our RBs...everyone else thinks we are retarded.

You can pay him what was agreed but structure it differently to move cap hits around to counter the accelerated dead money. It's really not that hard.

It was pay cut or be cut... you ready to cut Gross?

If I'm Gross, I would rather be cut. He will end up with more guaranteed money than taking a pay cut.

Take into account while Dumerville didn't light it up last season, at least he was on the field. Beason has been getting full pay the last 2 years to basically do nothing but rehab. You'd think he'd at least take a paycut this year, kinda pisses me off.

....yea, when I dont work I dont get paid...

Gross already has most of that in the bank....how it impacts our cap space is different than what he is paid.

All about what we he can get now vs if he had to go elsewhere
