    Starting David Diehl, could it be a salary issue?

    I don't know anything about Locklear's contract. However, I don't think he was brought here to be a starter. And that means, he probably has some escalation factors in his contract regarding the number of snaps he takes, how many games he starts, etc.

    I think this could this be a salary cap issue. What do you think?
    the "realist" is a lazy piece of crap that works on his tan while sipping a margarita,
    the pessimist changes the sails while complaining about the lazy piece of crap,
    and the optimist changes the sails while hoping the lazy piece of crap will start to do his share of the work.

    False. I mean, Victor Cruz last year was in a similar position and he performed well enough into a starting role. What would it be any different for Locklear?

    Locklear was an NFL vet who had a pretty big contract earlier in his career if I believe. He and his agent could command a better contract than Cruz at that time last year.

    Only a one year contract; there doesn't appear to be any frills:
    4/11/2012: Signed a one-year, $890,000 contract. The deal included a $65,000 signing bonus. 2012: $825,000, 2013: Free Agent

    There is no way Reese and the front office (and frankly the coaches going along with it) would sacrifice on the field performance to save a few $$ in incentives. C'mon now, that's a ridiculous theory.

    Having said that, has there been any official word that Locklear has been given back his starting role that he earned for Sunday's game?

    I agree, I doubt any team would put a lesser talented player on the field and jeopardize the outcome of a game just to save a few bucks...

    Locklear makes $890K total this year.

    What if it would put us over the cap? Would Reese go over the cap?

    I've been scouring sports news trying to find this out.

    How would it put them over the cap? His salary has already been accounted for.
