osi is only 1mill, his contract was front loaded.

The issue is if you outright cut them you lose the players and still take a lot of cap hit anyway...

With over twenty players on FA this year, we'll see just what kind of a dancer JR can be.

We cant keep up with what many teams with worse Olines are going to be willing to pay.

Well, Diehl, Webster, and Boley are all in the last year of their deals, so you'd only take the bonus money as a cap hit... We'd save all their base salaries.

I think Canty will get restructured, not cut.
