What to do with Matt Kalil

Because he is due $7m this year in salary.  The $14.7m is dead money, which is a sunk cost, nothing you can do about that.

People see cap hit of $12.2m vs dead money of $14.7m and think it would cost more to cut him but you have to look at the big picture.  A post June cut cut would allow us to spread that $14.7m over two years (4.9m this year, 9.8m next) so we wouldn't really lose cap space this year.  We would actually gain $7.3 ($12.2m-$4.9m).  We would still have to account for the other $9.8m next year.

Another way to look at it is to not even consider June 1st cuts and just look at the total cap hit of keeping a player vs letting them go.  For example, if we cut him this year we still have to account for $14.7m in dead money.  Wether you want to spread it out over two years or not doesn't change the total.  If you keep him for one more year it will cost you $12.2m this year in cap space and you will still have 9.8m in dead money next year for a total of $22m.

So, cut him now and you have to account for 14.7m over the next 1-2 years.

Cut him next year you have to account for $22m over the next 2-3 years.

 

 

Yep. People see dead cap and panic. Well I’d rather eat the almost $15m over the next two years than keep him eat almost $28m over the next two years.

Just laughing bro because NO player with any value, which (even though injured) Williams has because proficient tackles have GREAT value in this league, will sign a "prove it" deal.  An NFL player will have to be on his last rope to sign a "prove it" deal.

Eric Reid? If he doesn't count, Dontari Poe did that work the Falcons last season and it worked... 

Plus $7 million would have him be one of the to 10 highest paid right tackles, so it's not like it would be taking a big discount.

Why not see if he's healthy first? Even if it is as a back up he's better the Newhouse. We still need a back up. Moto at LT, Williams or somebody at RT. Kahlil backs up LT and move Moton to RT in emergency. Now, if Clark stays around then I would rethink this. He would be a good back up but would be cheap to offset the dead money of Kahlil?

Have you seen "Old Yeller?"

Look here sir, don't ever use Old Yellar in an analogy with Matt Kalil! Yellar fought off a bull, a bear, a wild boar and a rabid wolf in the line of duty. All he got in return was some table scraps and a bullet to the head for his efforts. I'd think he deserves a little more respect, particularly round here in the bible belt...

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).

Does it really matter what the cap numbers are?  We all know what Hurney does under pressure, he reaches in the draft, trades future assets and spends like a valley girl with daddy's credit card.

Cut him, who cares?  As soon as Hurney was brought back we knew the cap would be a disaster.

Just sit back and enjoy the influx of dumbassery and ineffectiveness inevitably headed our way with RonCo and Hurn-dawg.

This will be nails on a chalkboard bad.

Given his current status on IR, June 1 isn't going to change anything for 2019. He's going to hit our cap for over 12 million bucks unless he passes a physical or renegotiates. His 2019 salary is currently fully guaranteed for injury. The only gain is a roster spot which will add cap burden. Talk about it again spring of 2020.

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. 

I think you have to let him compete in training camp, before you cut him.  If he balls out, then I'd give him one more season.  There's a lot of ambiguity about his health.  If health really has been a determining factor the past two seasons then you have to see where you're at this year.  Plus I don't want him to get away with Sam Bradfording us.  I say throw him to the wolves....give him an extremely heavy workload and force his ass to earn some of that cheddar.

  He’s healthy and can and will be cut as soon as the new league year starts. He’s going to hit our books for 4.9M of dead money this year. 9.8M next year. That’s it. He was healthy last year and they still wouldn’t play him because of that injury guarantee. It makes no financial or common sense to give him another penny ever again.
