    Gotcha... good morning. Ok. We're not quite there... (calm down Ewker) ...
    for the sake of argument... McNair has been released. What do you do with that extra money? Half or so of that 24,25 Million on the cap can still be spent?
    Ok, what do you do with 10+ million dollars in FA with no McNair...?

    Might as start talking about it because every day it looks more and more as if it could happen. Sure, it's out there... but is it as out there as you may of thought even a month ago? What do you do with more cap room, no vet qb, a Volek and a ... screw him (MM)... he doesn't count. I'd rather play Gunny at qb. Arghhh!!! I wish I would have gone to bed instead of hearing about this.
    :sleepy: :( :geek:

    Use the money to pay down the cap in future seasons. Extend contracts this year and throw in likely to be earned incentives that will save cap room in the future.

    If we got $10 mill, I'd sign a MLB, Ty law if he isnt too expensive, save the rest for extensions/rookie pool.

    Is there anyone worth extending on the roster? 20-30 guys have one or two years experience and let's face it, there are not (m)any Pro Bowl guys in that group. I know you're gonna probably say Hanesworth....I find it amazing that we cut/did not re-sign alot of good players (Kearse, Mason, Rolle, and now probably Mcnair) to keep an underachiever like Fat Albert. Seems ironic to me....wait, its pretty sad actually.

    Sometimes a player can't be released, say they just signed a 5 year contract with a 20m bonus (Thigpen) if the player is released then all the bonus money comes into the current year and blows up the CAP. Titan could not have released Haynesworth as I am pretty certain it would have been a huge CAP hit.

    Kearse was let go so the Titans could sign Carter and Hopkins if I remember correctly. Mason and Rolle were FA losses if I remember correctly and McMVP is still a Titan he just don't get to play any reindeer games till he signs a new contract.

    Albert is on his rookie contract still, cutting him wouldnt have made much affect towards either rolle/mason/kearse.

    Plus he is the best DT we have by far.

    Haynesworth was a mid lst rounder so his bonus would have been a good one probably 1m+ per year of the contract.

    I think he has extended but I am not positive.

    I agree FA, when he plays, is a force. Won't ever forget that Unnecessary Roughness call he got for spiking Zeroue in the squeeler backfield. WTF Fat Albert got called for tackling a squeeler too hard - its an injustice!

    I'd like to sign law if he'd come down to 6 or 7 million instead of 10. If we got him locked in for two or three years, Pac Man and Hill would be real vets by the time he was gone, and we'd have a seriously solid secondary.

    I'm sure we could find a few players to restructure and resign as SK suggested too...
