    Not a lot of value in cutting him, doesn't seem like. I don't know. It's hard to imagine a player just fall off the map like that but he sure did. I guess we'll see what the club decides to do with him.

    Is he the most hated guy on the team now? Seems like it.

    He's still a young guy and still of value when healthy. I'd let him test the market and try to resign him with stipulations.

    I do not want Austin on this team in any way shape or form next year. I don't even want him back if he would accept the vet min. Make him a June 1st cut. He is nothing but an injury prone player who has lost a step. You can't rely on him for anything other than to pull a hamstring and be out 6-8 games. He is a progress stopper.

    There are probably two dozen Austins either in the league or about to be and with good hamstrings. Time to move on from him.

    Garrett, your the biggest problem in his decline... man, he saved your crappy play-calling in KC... you think you got him to ever play to his potential..

    He needs to be cut simple as that... Draft another mid round WR to take his place!

    It costs us less than $400K to keep him as the 5th WR. My inclination is to draft 7 Pass Rushers and a Guard.

    Cutting Austin frees up $5.5mil in cap space...

    If Garrett actually believes what he is saying about Miles then Garrett is a bigger fool than I thought. And that is saying a lot. Miles' release can't come soon enough. Along with Garrett's release. Please get rid of both of these chumps: Garrett and Miles.

    Amen. He cannot get out of town quick enough as far as I'm concerned. And I hope Ware is right behind him.
    It doesnt mean I dont appreciate what either guy did in Dallas. Its just time to move on.
