im pretty sure theres ways JR could convert cap hits into guaranteed money and free up tons of space. he might just be saving that card for last as insurance...thats what id assume dallas is doing, converting the bigger cap hits into guaranteed money like a signing bonus type deal. like with eli, whatever he's making this year against the cap, couldnt JR just guarantee it and pay it all off this year in guarantees, which would then create more cap space?? if dallas can keep doing it and freeing up all that space why cant we?
We've done that multiple times the past couple of seasons, it's why the team has so little cap space now, it's why Antrel Rolle currently counts 9mil against the cap, but the team can't cut him b/c almost all of that money is garunteed. At some point, you have to bite the bullet and cut some bloated salaries.
