    Many of you out there follow the cap space and salaries quite closely. We are 9m under the cap now but how much cap space will be cleared when some of the players on our current roster (and there will be some shockers) start to get cut?
    Obviously some d-linemen or 2 will be cut. A reciever or 2 will be cut. Emmitt Smith SHOULD be cut and I guess a o-lineman will be slashed.
    Does anybody see any significant cap savings that would help us sign more free agents?

    The should approach Starks about restructuring into an incentive contract. IE, you actually play in a game, we will pay you

    That dline, oline, or WR that are on the cut block right now really wont make much space to our cap space since most are paid the minimum anyways. Plus I doubt we cut anyone till after the draft maybe we cut a few guys after the end of march mini camp, but thats a big maybe.

    I doubt Green cuts smith IMO.

    I might be Calvin Pace who is unemployed after all is said and done. That would be strange but I get this sense he has to play himslef out of this huge doghouse just to get a shot at being a backup .

    "Strange" is a word that hardly does justice.

    Cutting a first rounder after one year and accelerating his bonus.

    Yoiu've got to be kidding! Where's the saving?

    I don't know if there would be cap savings on it. Maybe I am reading into it but Jurecki was pretty much going off about it and listening to him you get the sense Pace may be struggling just to make the team.

    I think it is way too early to throw in the towel but the emphasis being put on it by MJ is a bit unusual.

    I think Ryanwb gets cut. His production has fallen way off.

    Yeah, Ever since he hit 6000 posts he's been coasting. Good thing the posters pro bowl is a popularity contest cause Ryans numbers just don't warrant the attention.

    Where are you getting this from?

    I think Green sees a chance to motivate if he is saying any of these things, but Cut? come on.

    A better chance it snows in Phoenix in July.

    You dont cut a 2nd year player with a 1st round contract. That would be plain dumb!

    Getting cut is motivational. Poole got cut 4 times and it motivated him to make a game winning catch against Minnesota.

    I think he was just speculating.

    Calvin Pace was the 1st player in NFL history to start all 16 games at DE and only record 1 sack. He's a bust. We all knew it on draft day, some people tried the homer rout and pretended he wasn't.

    He sticks as a backup this year but I think he won't see 2005.

    So the guy does something NO other NFL player has ever done and you want to cut him (-:

    I assume by taking off plays Jurecki is referring to all theplays where he got velcroed to the LT, it certainly wasn't like Simeon running out of the way of blockers on run plays or running straight up the field on pass plays now and then. but obviously Rice put up a LOT more pass rush and caused a lot fumbles and we saw none of that from Pace.

    I'd be amazed if we cut him, I think it's motivational.

    I think Pace just got confused by the term, "left tackle." Apparenty he thought he was supposed to tackle the tackle, not the guy with the ball. Part of Greens new strategy is to refer to opposing lineman as, "left and right runpastme."

    First off he didnt start all 16 games. He did play all 16 games but he didnt start all of them. If I remember correctly, Johnson started in his place the last few weeks of the season and Wakefield started at the other DE.

    Second, wow it must have been a bad year to pick d-line man. It is too bad they were all busts:

    Robertson: sacks 1.5 Games 16
    J. Sullivan: Sacks 1 Games 15
    Kennedy: Sacks 0 Games 13
    T. Warren Sacks 1 Games 16** Pace wasnt the only one
    Haynes Sacks 2 Games 16
    McDougle Sacks 0 Games 8



    We should try and pick one of these players up since they were all busts and will probably be cut!
    :rolleyes:
