    He'll be 29 this season, he still has 2-3 good years left in him. I'd sign him for sure.

    Can't do anything about dead money or bonuses already paid but their salaries won't have to be paid if they are not with us.

    Salaries the next 3 years 2014-2016.

    Griffin $6.2M, $6.3M, $6.5M

    Wimbley $6M, $6.5M, $7M

    That's an average cost in salary of $12.8M a year over the next 3 years. Money that could be better spent.

    That might be why griff is playing better he knows we might release him after the year is over and will have to sign with a new team.

    Man we gotta make sure we keep both Pollard & Gregg Williams around. Hope they don't feel they can take off for more money. Wilson is a pricey backup but he's already been very valuable on special teams and in coverage. I'm for keeping all of these guys. We can dump Wimbley's salary and also David Stewart's. Time for a new T IMO.
