    You're a lawyer correct?

    I know the NFL has taken anti poison pill measures, but is it still possible?

    yes

    after the Steve Hutchinson poison pill contract by Minnesota (which said he had to be the highest paid OL on his team and Seattle had a high priced OT), the NFL outlawed it and tightened up the rules with transition and franchise tags. But even though not formally a “poison pill,” a team can structure the financial terms of a contract (frront loading it) that makes it difficult for a team to match. But we have $80+m in cap space, so we can probably do what we want this year.

    Never mind them. Yes it has been brought up several times in other threads, not 90 though. But I do not recall a thread being made to address it as a stand alone thread.

    Witten, Cobb, Austin all had $5 million deals, I think, then what was left on Quinns deal though Miami ate that, so he may have been around the $5 million also.

    Doesn't cutting Crawford free up like $8 million or something absurd like that?

    Are you sure? The talking heads are saying if we give Dak 30+ we will be in cap hell. The transition tag would hurt us because that 200+ million offer sheet that New England will offer Cooper will break the bank.:oops::rolleyes: We will be ok the Joneses know what they are doing when it comes to the salary cap.

    Thats awesome news. Although its not ideal it gives us options. Id considering putting Coop or Jones on a first round tender. It would be great if someone bit on Jones and we could turn around and draft a CB with the pick he nets us.
