What to do with Matt Kalil

Recommended Posts

His contract is awful, but I think it would be in the teams best interest to cut him now and absorb all the dead money in one season rather than putting a whole bunch of it on 2020.

trade his ass. Surely we are not the dumbest team in the league. Actually we may be because of him, but any mofo with that kind of contract and also the joke of not just fans, not just  the media..but even other damn players about being a turnstall is enough to get rid of his ass. 

 

I'll never forgive Ryan Kalil, as great as he was, for allowing/laughing behind the scenes this bull with his brother.

I would absolutely cut him with a post-June 1 designation as soon as the team is eligible to do that.

Yeah, there would be dead money for the next 3 years of about $5M per year, but there would also be cap-savings in the first year of over $7M and the next two years of $11M and $11.5M (base salary + roster + work-out bonuses).

Change all the locks in the facility.  Turn off the lights when he comes around.

And the roster spot is worth something-- I am not sure I want him as a reserve.  Clark was not good, but better than MK.

It’s spread over two years not 3. $7m in savings this year (you can use it on draft picks so we’d get most of it) and $6 in 2020. Also a big cash savings. Keeping him on the roster to avoid dead cap gets silly because you still net $7m less in cap because his cap numbers on the roster are higher.

Cut his ass. Paying him anymore new cash is a waste.

As someone to play in a few spots, as a backup, Clark might not be terrible.  He's not the answer as a consistent starter, and he's never going to look like more than an awkward stork coming out of his stance, but if he can just hold up for a half or a handful of plays here and there, he's worth it at a minimum salary.

Cut him. With that $7 Million Dollar savings, offer Daryl Williams a 1-year prove it deal if he doesn't get what he wants in Free Agency / won't sign long-term at a lower rate due to his injury.

2019 Offensive Line:
Moton
Van Roten / FA / Draft
Larsen / FA / Draft
Trai Turner
Daryl Williams

This would be my ideal situation. There is no reason to keep Matt Kalil, even with that contract. He would be riding the bench and taking up a roster spot. Open up a spot and cut our losses.

Can someone explain how we save $7M by cutting Kalil?  It's my understanding that his dead cap money for the next 2 years is rough. 

That being said, I'd prefer to cut him and then use Captain, Adams & Searcy's savings to offset the Kalil hit.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong on Spotrac, but I didn't think we "save" anything with him until 2021.
