Gross may be next if he doesnt restructure
damn. Wow.
Makes sense, he wasn't all that great and cost a lot of money while we have good backups already.
I WAS PREDICTING THIS TO MY BUDDY DURING THE SEASON! RON IS NOT BIG ON ANDERSON AT HEART...JON BEASON WILL REPLACE HIM IN THE LINEUP
how much does he save us???
Saw this coming a mile away.
Wow, didn't see this one coming. Hope Beason will be at full health next season.

Yup, Im not surprised by this move at all. Hes nothing but someone who racks up a bunch of tackles after 4-5 yards gainer. Hes no Will Witherspoon or Thomas Davis.
Probably a good move. James Anderson is a smidge overrated by some of our fans. Hate to see him go though
Anyone know how much cap money this frees up?

Can we now talk Jarvis Jones at 14 if hes still on the board?

No

I can't find his contract details anywhere.

His Bonus was 4 million. So whatever is left of that will be accelerated.

According to Spotrac, his cap hit was $4.2 million.
This does not make LB a need, he was the 4th best LB on the team.


Makes me think we are targeting a free agent...

Another fuging LB in the first round?

I hate to see Anderson go bc he is a solid player but I like that Gettleman is setting the tone for this team. Average outside linebackers aren't going to be paid like great ones. He's talked about setting a standard for what each position will be paid...and he's backing that up. Hurney paid "core" guys tons of money no matter what position they played.
