    I share your concern, DOOMS, but I have to think he is too valuable to just let him walk, with no compensation.

    His cap hit to us would not be the same as his cap hit to other teams under his current salary would it. What is his base salary and what is his signing bonus proration.

    I mean, is it worth the 1.5 mill just so you could trade him later on.

    Would Jerry pay 1.5 million for a 4th round pick?

    I don't really know, but what is a draft pick worth?

    We may not have much of a choice. Personally I think the best we can hope for is some team offering a late pick to keep Glover from becoming a FA but teams are not going to invest high draft picks for a player who is getting up there in age and know Dallas can't afford to keep him given his role with the team. We have seen other team in this same boat and they do what has to be done because it is part of managing the cap.

    Glovers base salary is 4.5 million and you would have to trade him before the 1.5 mill bonus because you dont wanna pay 1.5 million then get rid of the guy (a 4th round pick is worth nowhere near that)


    So the team trading would have to be willing to take on 6 million dollar hit AND THE LAST YEAR OF HIS CONTRACT

    A team that really needs a tackle will give up a 5th so he won't hit the open market. Ellis will defintely bring in at leat a 3rd. Unlike Glover his contract is feasible. A 2nd round pick for Ellis is not unlikely either.

    I follow the Boys regularly and, well, I am not convinced he or Ellis will be released. Why would they? the Cap? Screw that! All we need is a FS, RT, and a kicker and we are off to the races. Let Ellis and Glover be part of a kick-*** rotation like we had in the 90s.

    Scouts, Inc. rates Glover a 79, Simon a 77. Simon is also 28 compared to Glovers 31. I would rather have Glover but your "jock strap" comment is way over the top at this stage of the 2 player's careers. At the end of the day Glover fate will be the the same as Simon's was in Philly- he will be released. Glover has no incentive at all to restructure unless he a) really wants to be here and b) we assure him he will. When you consider he's really ill suited to be a 3-4 NT why would this be the case for him or us?

    Glover has been a great player for us but it's best for both sides to move on. It's only logical he will refuse to restructure because he has to figure they'll be teams lining up to pay him. It's NFL 101.

    of course, they would fail the section on their homework that told them that we are going to have to release Glover b/c of his contract and when his roster bonus is due (prior to the end of the trading moratorium).

    Glover is a team player and a leader. Simon is not. Let me know when Scouts Inc starts to take that into account.

    Maybe we can trade Glover, Coakley and Reshard Lee and get a 3rd... ;)

    That means, "Francis can't walk", right?

    This will no doubt be the first in a long line of ******** threads suggesting we trade the likes of Glover and Ellis for high draft picks. I can't see us getting more than a 5th for Glover and I think it's extremely optimistic to envision getting a 2nd for Ellis. Again, a 4th or 5th looks more likely. In the case of Ellis, I actually wouldn't mind keeping him, rather than trading him. He's a solid vet, and I'm not sure that we can bank on Spears and Canty just yet.
