The very reason we love SS89 is the very reason he will not be a part of this team in 2014. He is a no-frills, no bs in your face motherfather with a Napoleon complex that served him well at 28 but has run its course. Gettleman obviously offered him a low-ball contract which he refused (which as I said previously as heard on WFNZ he would) and so here we are. Steve has held his breath and Gettleman is not buying it.
A 35 YO WR with ever-diminishing skills with an ever-increasing salary cannot coexist in today's market if you want to win in the future.
If we were the Raiders with $60 mill in cap space this might go differently, but we are not.
Even with a sport that doesn't have a salary cap, Dale Murphy was cut loose.
I'll take "FA, DG and the 2014 NFL Draft for the Future" Alex.
