Gross or Williams is next. Something will happen.

Hope Gross restructures.



Yup, I agree.
Both may be gone. Never know.

I was one who opposed to cutting our own guys like Dwill, Beason, etc throughout the offseason, but now I wouldnt care who Gman gut. Im not going to be emotional and feel too attached to these players anymore. Do what's best for this franchise, and that is cutting who you have to to create space and fill positions where it's needed the most.

Keeping these guys with huge contracts will keep us 2-3 years away from being a Playoffs contender.

I can understand it, take the lumps now and start fresh going forward. I like that we don't pay premiums for mediocrity anymore.


So it is a business after all...no more of these then?

Gross has to be restructured. Our o-line will be too weak without him.
hey guys dae think we're gonna draft jarvis jones now

get back to me with your thoughts

Next order of business:

"Hello, Garry Williams? this is Dave Gettlemen..."
"Hello Jeff Hangartner? Dave Gettlemen here...."

Yeah, Jimmy Clausen, going need you to come in for a physical today
here's another article with cap info as well

Sucks. JA was another one of my favorite guys. Really good player who also is a really good dude off the field and always took time to engage fans. I don't really get cutting him, he wasn't making a ton of money and at the least would be a "4th starter" as depth. Man, these last few days have been depressing.
I'd take the full hit this year, save cap space for next.
Anderson's contract was 5 years, $22 million, $8.5 million guaranteed, signed in 2011.

team wants/needs to win this year. they need as much money as possible this year toget players who can help and fill holes.
he was a great person I hope he can take his Hurney money and go play somewhere else.
beason was the better choice to keep. costs more to keep but also more expensive to unload and has a higher upside than anderson. also, from a teammate/leader standpoint, beason is more important.

It's a future move I would guess. We can't afford to pay a "4th Starter" starters money for multiple future seasons with everything we need ot get. If Gettleman turns this space into a corner or tackle, it helps the team a lot more.


It does suck we had to cut him though because he was a nice guy and engaging. All the best to him, and hope he finds a good job somewhere else.
I bet he lands on Denver
Gettleman obviously saw what I was trying to tell you folks last year. Anderson is a liability on the field. He is a step behind in coverage and will not take on blocks to help his teammates. Great move, he is not starter material.

He had the 9th highest cap hit on the team. A "4th starter" can't account for that kind of hit. Granted his dead money is still the 9th highest cap hit, but it was about the future as well.
Doesn't this give Beason leverage in not taking a pay cut?

Shouldn't we have done that first?

Either way, I don't have a problem with the move. What's it net us financially?

I think they just cut DJ Williams and might cut Dummervil, so it'd make sense (Although I think Dummervil may have played more end last season).

Not with his injury history and how easy it is to replace LBers

Good move. We are fine at LB without him

Unless you are a season ticket holder, paying again for another 'lost' season.

I have two PSLs, section 342, want to buy them?
Listening to the moron frank garcia is clear we are clearing cap to start working on cams deal next year. June 1st cuts hurt us next year. We are going to have to take our medicine this year. Exactly the opposite of what he is saying is what were doing.

Beason better do what is needed of him. Especially given his injury history and that Jason Phillips is perfectly capable of starting and being a tackling machine
