Every bit counts with the salary cap.
JP could probably find a job elsewhere in the league in this scenario because he doesn't miss - every snap is good.
Having said that, the chance anyone is going to cleanly beat JP is pretty remote for a guy on top of his game like JP is.
But how do we KNOW the new guy would be as good? Since we would have to cut JP before the season; before the kid had seen the real pressure.
Frankly a couple of million a year for perfect snaps and no worries there is a cheap price. Considering one bad snap can lose a game.
