This was complete garbage... Basically speculating best scenario for every other team, and then juxtaposing it to the worst case scenario with the Panthers.
PFF has hated Cam for years b/c they can't comfortably fit him in their ranking system
There’s a lot in there, but your contract info in 100% wrong. After this year, Slye is an EFRA for two years and then a RFA in year 4. His salary for this year and 2020/2021 would be the league minimum not $3m+ per year. Slye isn’t Norwell so he’d get the 3rd tier RFA. Based on tables I just looked at, Slye’s 4 year cost would be $3.7m compared to Gano’s $17m for 4 years. Funny to try and somehow give Slye $10m over 3 years when a stud UDFA like Norwell only made $4.5m over 4 years with us.
Regardless of how Slye played or even Butker, we’re talking about a $13-14m savings over 4 years not $600k per year like you asserted.
