Okay, someone will be a June 1st cut

There is no way in hell, that we can sign our bargain FA's, and our draft class which leads me to believe either someone will have to restructure, or have to get cut. Michael Brockers who was chosen with the 14th pick last year accounted for 1.7 million of the cap, with what we have left...I don't see us fitting everyone into the measly 3 million.

But who will it be?

Gross will restructure. Give it time. Gettlemen may also have another idea or two up his sleeve. All the draft picks will fit and we will bring back at least one out of munnerlyn and dwan.

If you say so it must be true

Williams.

Makes zero sense to cut him as a June 1 until the day after the draft. Always a 2% you can trade him.

Yup. I'm not cap expert but based on the numbers I've seen, cutting Williams or Beason right now actually costs us more money than keeping them. And designating them as early June 1 cuts does nothing until June anyway, so might as well keep them on the roster and see how the draft and cuts shake out. We may wait until June to actually cross that bridge.

Trading someone because of a stupid-money contract someone gave him, because you need to get under the cap or because you need to get spending under control gets you teams offering a 4th or 5th.

Trading someone because they no longer fit your offensive scheme or you've found his replacement gets you a 3rd or 4th.

Gross does not want to take a cut....

Cut Garry Williams and Hangartner.................about 3.2 million (that moves us to about 6.4 million below cap)

Re-sign Munnerlyn.....................1 million in 2013

You have $5 million, maybe more.

If Gross does not re-sign, pay him in 2013 and cut him in 2014.

Cut DWill on June 1 (Anderson already is) if necessary to sign picks

Williams wouldn't be a June 1 cut just as a means to create room like say Gamble was...more reasons to

Id assume if this was just a restructure it would already be done. It's already known he was asked to take a pay cut. Id say thats probably what we're waiting on, as the market begins to thin.

Restructuring only hurts us down the road, and Gettleman has been pretty apparently trying to address the issue this year and in the future.

You could argue Gross wouldn't want a simple restructure because he knows it may lower his future job security, but that isn't ideal because it only hurts us more when the time would come to cut him.

We're waiting on him to decide on a pay cut.

Fwiw I'd say he likely declined the pay cut. If he's sitting around trying to decide what he wants to do and we're forced to continue courting chumps like frank omiyale because of it while we wait then... Well..

I would think Gross would take a restructured deal, or at least i would think he has some sense of loyalty to the team that drafted him and kept him around these last 10+ years.

DWill I fro some reason in my gut do not see him leaving. Just a gut feeling. They seem to be trying to cut a lot of people that we were not expecting. We were all expecting Dwill and Gamble. But no Anderson.
