DT Colin Cole coming back

I don't mind that.

Cole didn't really wow me on the field, compared to the two rooks, but that's a lot to ask.

He ended up starting a lot of games, but only played about 30% of snaps. It's a place they could save a couple hundred thousand on a young guy like Gaydosh, and sure, that's still possible I guess.


Don't think he needed to really 'wow', just needed to not be Fua/McClain lol

I would not mind seeing Gaydosh getting some reps.  However, the Canadian rules distance the DT from the LOS more, so the DTs are like "Defensive Tacklebackers"  I am going to trademark that name.

 

In other words, he needs to learn the Sumo or GR approach to wrestling, not the WWF version.

I don't think I knew Cole was Canadian.

 

ManStrength, are those PFF's #s?

Two Canadian DT on one team?  This must be a 1st.

Not necessarily a savings with gay.

 

When qualified, a player with more than two years of NFL experience can earn his total minimum salary, but have a cap figure that reflects two years of experience – or in 2014, $570,000. The contract must be for only one year, and must not contain combined bonus money (signing, roster, workout) that exceeds $65,000.

For instance, Shayne Graham recently re-signed with the New Orleans Saints on a 1 year $955,000 contract. With more than two years of experience (12), and a 1 year contract, Graham qualfies for the cap hit benefit. His 2014 cap figure will be $570,000 in New Orleans.

Had he received a signing bonus of the maximum $65,000, he would have received a $1.02 million contract, with a $955,000 base salary, a $65,000 signing bonus, and a cap figure of $635,000 (570+65).

With plenty of veterans being released, or not signed back thus far in 2014, the use of the Minimum Salary Benefit Rule becomes useful both for older players looking for jobs, and teams looking to minimize their cap dollars.
