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.

That means 31 other teams have 7 more mil to spend.

 

4 million. Not 7.

    • I was very intrigued by him early on. The tape (highlights) look good, and at that size still seemed to have pull away speed. Then I looked into him more, and he has some very bad fumbling issues. If I am remembering right it is like once in every 34 carries on average.  Near the bottom in the entire RB draft class.
    • Honestly I claim no expertise regarding the draft and haven't gone to the trouble of creating a board or ranking players. But I think that guys in the top 50 are often from bigger schools and get more hype than other guys.  Plus there may be guys taken at some positions much sooner or later than previous years. In the past 2 drafts, no tight ends were drafted in the first round. And the last time 4 TEs were picked in the top 3 rounds was a decade ago. This year we could see 2 tight ends taken in the first round alone and another 2 or 3 in the second round.  On the other hand there is often a run of OTs taken in the first and this might be the first draft in a while where no OTs are taken in the top 20. We could get one of the top 10 tackles at 98 or 115 where other years they would be chosen much higher. Is that because they all suck or is it that there are more attractive guys at other positions?  You make a good point about trading up. Is it better to have 2 picks at 40 and 64 instead of one at 24. I think it depends on how we see our current projected starters.  If we think we have several holes to fill and these guys are going to be impact players than don't trade up. If you think that the guy at 64 would be a rotational guy but who we want at 24 is going to be a starter and really impact the team, you trade up. It depends on what we think we need and how the draft pans out.
