    1. Gets arrested and brings negative attention the Cards
    2. Already paid $4M signing bonus - salary is fully guaranteed.
    3. Counts $3M against the cap which Cards cannot recover.
    4. Creates $2M in dead money in 2020.

    This is more than just cutting some dude with legal issues and finding a replacement. He's consuming cap space that can't be recovered. And, I agree with prior posts that the front office has to be somewhat accountable -- maybe for simply guaranteeing him so much money and signing a guy to a $1M base salary contract with a $4M bonus.

    This is all on the player. You cannot babysit these “men” who make dumb ass decisions.

    Exactly...

    This guy was a great signing on paper, young starter 5 tech DE whose previous team shifted to a 4-3 and was an odd man out. Kept his nose clean in SD and LA.

    As much venom as there is for SK, SK wasn't at the club (that we are aware of LOL) with him...100% on DP, it sucks we have to absorb the financial implications of his bad behavior.

    Our dead money is now roughly $34 million. That’s insanely bad roster management

    Keim's not on the hook for every individual poor decision by a guy off the field, but when we have to cut two guys on account of major legal issues, and the guy decided to drive drunk on 4th of July himself, it's time to start calling out judgement of character here.

    Our dead money is the equivalent of a top-level starter's signing bonus. That could be CJ Moseley or something. Instead? Rodney Gunter and a 3rd round draft pick are going to have to take every start.

    Yes Philon made bad decisions and is now out of work...at least temporarily. Front offices cannot babysit all the time but let's not act like Keim knew nothing and is clean.

    He almost certainly knew Philon likes the strip clubs. That would have been common knowledge. It is also an easy assumption Pgilon owns a gun or guns. There was a study 5+ years ago that showed 75%-80% NFL players own guns.

    I am also guessing Philon had some minor scraps with the law that were washed away and you would be surprised how even the incidents that never amount to charges are still out there in the background checks front offices perform. Guys are squeaky clean then are suddenly pulling guns on strippers.

    Keim had made yet another bad move and all those bad decisions plus his DUI and he still has a job. Sounds hypocritical.

    Keim getting blamed for a series of poor character decisions, and a bunch of wasted money.

    If I cost my company $34 million in poor hires I had to let go and then hired a guy who pulled a gun on strippers in his first month, I would lose my job.

    Does your company make as much money as the NFL and their respective franchises, is the loss of millions something which is not uncommon in your line of business in relation to the nature of the company which has disposable millions and the occupation of the employees to dismantle someone physically as part of a job description? Agree on Keim's track record on some picks but your analogy is a poor example putting him in your shoes unless your line of work coincides with pro football. We are in a rebuild mode and loss of money is usually reflected anyways in a massive rebuild were there is no guarantee template

    I have never seen so much speculation as what is speculated on this forum.

    How is Keim responsible? I'd understand if he signed a Ruben Foster and another incident happened but I don't believe there's a history with Philon.
