But honestly this is some good news  to start the off season. But 4 million for us still doesn't sound like a lot. Some saying invest in Hardy now. Which I agree we should or We just go ahead and use the extra 4 million and go ahead and dump Stewart and Dwill both. Here is the best solution. Keep Dwill and release Stewart and then sign Hardy to new contract and give Cam contract as well. Sign the guys we need and draft some good players and we are all set for the season. :thumbsu:

What are some of the dead money hits of some of our albatross contracts? Like you said signing GH back would be nice? But getting out from under those sooner would be a great feeling too.

I'll withold my excitement until i hear something from a legit source. i don't really trust schefter or espn.

 

it will be great if they aren't, once again, slinging poo to see if it sticks.

I can understand the thoughts of using the extra space to clear bad contracts... but I think the first priority should be to bring back Hardy because he's the best pass rusher we've got and he's just coming into his prime. 

 

But bottom line, I trust Gettleman to make the best use of this extra cap space for both our short term and long term best interests.

Wait.... Hardy is our best pass rusher. Really! How about CJ. I think he is a little better then Greg. I want go back into the reasons why. Been said quit a few times. GH is a good pass rusher. But I feel like CJ is a little better the Hardy.

fixed. I don't want other franchises with already a ton of cap space to splurge and become more relevant than they should.  4 mil is not so bad in that regard.

I would say Johnson is the best pass rusher we got and that Hardy greatly benefits from having CJ on the other side. Not to deminish Hardy because I love the Kraken. But to me CJ is our best End and its not even close.

 

Part of me wants us to use it to wrapped Hardy up.

Part of me wants to use it on WR/O-Line/Secondary help

Part of me wants to use it on a Combo of Locking up Cam long term/taking cap hits cutting dead weight.

 

Point is losing Hardy in my opinion (and its just that) is not the end of the world or even the worst thing that can happen to us this year. I would say not resigning Gross would be scarier.
