    At the end of the day NFL contracts are not guaranteed and until they are cutting players before their contracts expire are part of the business.
    +1. But I think that cutting AB was a bad idea. $3.75M for a RB who's a leader like he is, is as tough as he is, and protects the QB like he does is is worth that money.

    And he was the last guy on this team that played with attitude and had a set of balls.

    I love AB but at some point all the foot operations are going to catch up with you. Perhaps the Giants bring him back with a cap friendly deal.

    To the original poster, you should be mad at the NFL and the artificial salary ceiling they created.

    As much as I loved watching AB play week in and week out, it simply comes down to......Keep AB or make room to sigh Cruz and Nicks. Im sorry but i rather sign both Cruz and Nicks and sacrifice AB. His foot injuries are soon to catch up to him.

    Nope, it keeps the league competitive. It's the team's job to stay within it.

    We don't really know if it was bad or not. There may have been medical issues. NFL RB's have about 5 yrs careers on avg. AB is there and pretty beat up. We all hate to lose guys, but sometimes its just time to say thank you and goodbye.

    Under the new cba don't all teams have to spend close to 100% of the salary cap? Thought I read that somewhere

    I'm disgusted that New Yorkers allow philly cheese steak to be called "philly cheese steak" in New York. They should call it "New York Cheese Steak" in New York. Also New England Clam chowder should be renamed the "Lower Manhattan Clam Chowder.

I think the biggest problem is guys being torn between wanting to stay with a great organization and getting a huge payday. Reese is using every trick in the book to keep talent on board. If we didn't have such a great organization, these guys would not have restructured.

    Changing personnel is part of the league now.
    As much as it hurts to say good bye, we will loose good players. Let's see what the off season brings before we hang anyone.
    Indeed, trying to balance the salary cap and hard decisions about personnel are part of the game and GMs earn their paycheck every year. I'm not angry at anyone in particular bro but I guess I'm disgusted about the salary cap hit this year because everyone saw it coming with lots of inflated deals and so many contracts than needed restructuring in consequence. I guess everybody ( players and FO ) accept the unwritten rules of the game and they play by them, well-aware of the risks and benefits of the business. I know this is a phase any team goes through every once in a while but it seems that I just can't get used to it even with all my years loving the game. Call me a romantic but thats just the way I'm wired.
