I have always been a strong believer that you cant keep both after this year. It would lock up to much cap space over the next couple of years. But I did some research and I can see a way we can keep both atleast for next year. IMO Hardy will be the better of the two going forward and if I had a choice would like to keep him long term. Well there is a way.
Johnsons contract is through to the 2016 season. For 2014 Johnsons cap figure will be 16.4 million which is a lot and his dead money if he was cut is 16.2 so he wont be going anywhere next season. But in 2015 is 17.4 his dead money 6 million. We could cut him or trade him and save 11.4 million in cap space. So all we have to do for Hardy is figure a way to squeeze him n next season where we don't take a major cap hit.
For Luke Beason is counting $8 million in cap money for 2014 so in 2015 we can just slide that to Luke so no issue there. We could keep this defense next season if Hardy would work with us his first season.
The only question now is how we fit Cams contract in there too.
So a lot of people on this board like to talk crap. Time to put some Pride on the line. For those interested I have came up with a Avatar Bet. Loser will have to use a Avatar of the wining side choice. So what are the details.
We will have a bet on which QB had a better game this coming sunday. It will be based on Passing/rushing/TDs/INT/fumbles and the winning team. Will post the point system on Tuesday and all who are interesting can make the bet.
Ok here is the deal.
1 point for every completion
5 points for every 10 passing yards
5 points for every 10 rushing yards
6 points for each TD rushing or passing
10 points to the winning QB
-3 for Fumbles, Int
-2 for a sack
If you agree to this let me know if you take the bet. Winners decide on losers Avatar.
