I doubt that reporting and workout bonuses are going to hit the mill to 1.75 mill mark. You can argue that the numbers might be 100k higher but 1.75 mill is off the mark. Carr isn't going anywhere. The Tampa 2 can get by with corners who can't cover -- but it really thrives with guys that are great in coverage. Barber, Tillman -- those sort of guys could play in any defense, just like Carr. That's just not accurate. Cutting Connor saves us 3 mill dollars. Is anyone giving Sims a $3 mill deal next year? Highly doubt that. When we convert salary to bonus we routinely add an option year to allow the money to be spread over the full 5 year limit. So it is closer to 1.4 mill in that scenario. His deal, if we keep him at all, is prime for that sort of restructure as there is very little bonus money charged against the cap (2.25 mill). He may well get cut though as his remaining guarantee and bonuses are close to wash with his base. Believe what you believe, I expect we will see otherwise. I do appreciate the perspective you bring though - a far cry from the folks who hear "over the cap" and start flipping out.
