    So they cut him not to pay him? Pretty Dick. Thats bad precedent. That seems like it defeats the point of a contract. Imagine if the colts cut Manning last year to avoid paying a huge some and then signed him to a new backloaded contract.

    Does that mean Matt Wilhelm is moving up their depth chart? He was Hawks back up. I wouldn't mind Hawk coming here to compete for the starting job. He might be a slight upgrade.

    Well, if they thought that he wasn't giving them the production that warranted that pay, then that is part of the game and happens all the time. Kind of like us cutting LT because he wasn't giving us $6mil in production. That is why signing bonuses and roster bonuses are used. Most payers base salary is low, and it is a "roster bonus", basically just being on the team on a certain date, that make up the majority of their salary.

    So it was probably an issue where they released him to facilitate restructuring his contract.

    Report is that nick Barnett will likely be released. Another guy injured a few times but a hell of a player when healthy
