    Read it somewhere yesterday during all the contract talks wanna say Wyatt reported or someone but yea dead money is what we still would have to pay him. It's his ghetto contract.

    We do not owe Amano 4 mil in dead money. The deal he signed was a 5 yr deal and had a signing bonus of 7.25mil his total guaranteed money on the contract was 10.34mil and the extra guaranteed amount came as guaranteed base salary in the first yr of his contract. So of the initial signing bonus we are still on the hool for 2.9 mil. But if he is cut we could designate him a June 1st cut which would spread the cap hit over 2 yrs. His 2013 salary is 3.685mil. So cutting him and designating him as a June 1st cut would save the Titans 2.2mil this yr.

    I think that Amano gets a chance to go to camp and he must greatly outplay any other backup G/C to keep his job. If he doesn't then he gets cut and it gives us 2.2mil to play with during the season.

    the 1.9 mil we save from cutting the last ranked C a year BEFORE he was severely injured is more than worth it.

    The money is even more dead if he's on our team so we might as well let him go...I'm sure we're just waiting til after we draft our guard to do it.

    I think Abe or Usi would be great additions. In the draft, if Jordan is gone by pick 10, then I hope we trade down, possibly with the Niners. Then take Demontre Moore late in the first and take Trufant with our next pick if he is there.

    Raiders free-agent DE Matt Shaughnessy is visiting Cardinals, then Titans on Friday and possibly Eagles if no other deal done.

    good deal if we can get him for fairly cheap. having him giving Wimbley breaks on run downs will be good. however, who on earth are we drafting? if it's Teo i'll puke.
