This is the way to go, IMO, except for cutting Brown. Except for the injury to Waddel, I would dump Gardner, too. Might still anyway since Fuller can fill in at CB depth as well as S, and I'd expect Finnegan to as well. Cutting Nickey Wade and Gardner would save, what, close to $2M? Add $2.4M for Sirmon and $3M for a Bulluck restructure and now you're around $7.4M with the amount we still have currently. That's enough money to sign the rookies, and then you can keep McNair at his current contract. The only thing you can't do realistically is sign Law. Do the rookies take $6M to sign? Leaving $1.4M. Law wants $10M guananteed? You would have to restructure Kinney and Hentrich to get that extra mil. $2.4M. Oh, and you'd have to cut Nash and Peyton probably, which is likely to happen anyway. Law would have to been signed to a 4-year deal to prorate anything close to $10M bonus and sign for the minimum. Even after doing all of that at $2.9-$3M, another cut or restructure would have to take place. But I'd do everything up until that point to keep McNair. We could always play the Ravens game and wait for them to cut Chris McAllister or get Ahmad Plummer for less. I hope the FO is thinking along these lines. Making the cuts to sign the rookies. Keep McNair. Screw the Ravens. Law would be a bonus if possible.
