how much does his release cost the team in dead money / cap space? how does this affect us for the coming offseason? im not terribly familiar with cap calculations. i can compare figures after they've been calculated but the calculation still gets me
Add to his question does it save anything this year?
When healthy Cam can do things no one else can. Problem is we expect him to do those things every time he touches the ball and that is not realistic. He's never had a great line, or great receivers. We have been in cap hell ever since he's been here and are still in cap hell but making progress.
Cam is not healthy at the moment so we shouldn't expect superman for the first few games. If he can play reasonably well and we get a few wins that should shut up the critics. We need at least one more year to get things right with the cap and then I think we begin to surround Cam with better talent. In my opinion the sky is still the limit for this great young talent and I am damn proud to have him as our starting QB.
