    But apparently it takes a rocket scientist to realise it's a fiscal impossibility for the Titans to pay McNair what he wants, without releasing other veterans...

    Maybe we should cut Olson, Piller and Mawae and see how McNair would like to start behind an "all-rookie" O-line...

    That is exactly what I thought. Its obvious that Cook thought that the arbitraitors ruling was finally going to bring a resolution to this, and it turns out it hasnt. His frustration is starting to show.

    One of his problems is that he's done a lot of work on Steve this year, and unless he signs with Baltimore, he's not going to see a single penny for it. Bus Cook has absolutely zero incentive to rework Steve's deal with Tennessee. He also has zero incentive to let Steve take a physical, because if he fails, maybe Baltimore starts questioning whether they want him.

    I've always wondered how that worked. I assume the agent gets paid when the player does. This would mean Bus would get his cut of McNair's $10 mil if he was to stay. If he goes to Baltimore, he gets the same cut of $12 mil.

    One thing to remember, we don't know what McNair is scheduled to make in base in the Baltimore deal beyond '06. If the Titans were to match it, here's what would happen:

    Old cap dollars: $2.69 mil
    New cap dollars: $2.2 mil
    Base for '06: $1 mil

    Total for '06: $5.89 mil against the cap which frees up a whopping $17.56 mil this season.

    The problem is down the road if they were to release McNair. If it was done in '07, they'd have $19.56 mil on the cap. It makes it almost certain that McNair would remain in '07 where he'd count another $6-$7 mil on the cap and still leave around $14 mil or so on the books in '08 which is where the team is now with his cap number.

    I just don't see the Titans throwing that kind of money at McNair when he'll be the #2 going into '07.
