Keep the recieving corp.
keep the running back corp.
Definitely keep the safety corp.
Keep half the secondary(webster is webster)
Keep the linebacking corp including boley but restructure them(boley and blackburn are the leaders of the D).
Keep half the d line. Keep JPP, Canty,joseph(I know canty isn't JPP but the D line is just so much worse without him).
Tuck I feel should retire. I'd say we should cut him but the guy is the leader of the d line and I'm just worried what would happen without him.
Just look at the Ravens. Ray lewis is an average linebacker but when he's not there the whole D falls apart. I just feel Tuck brings something else to the team along with playing.
Osi? If we knew how to use him I'd restructure him. Just rotate him with Tuck when it's run or pass. Tuck can't pass rush but osi can at least but osi sucks against the run so there you go.
I view all of this as an opportunity rather than a problem. We get to right size ourselves on some guys who are paid way beyond their level of contribution. That gives JR the cash to reload.
No one remembers who came in second.
If we're gonna use Osi against the run then just cut him. Problem is the guy is very good when you know they're gonna pass. If they rotate Osi based on whether it's pass or run then I'd restructure. If not? Get him out of there.
Why do people think that a restructure is a pay cut?
they settle for less now , but when the year comes around to get their big money back ...
their skills are in decline and can wind up being cut without ever getting their payday.
that's why when you cut a player with a contract you still get the cap hit.....that rule is there
to help protect the player.
the cut player never sees the money......but it still counts against the cap (as a deterrent) .
at least that's my general understanding
