    To be fair, reality kind of sucks.

    Why would you keep a player that is 33 yrs old, has not played a game in 2 years -2019 (Broken Let), 2020 (torn Pectoral Muscle). He as received 13.5 Million for those 2 years and is supposed to get 9mil this year. He will have lost a step for with his age. He is not worth retaining. The Cardinal will only have a Dead Cap hit of 1.5 mil but will have a cap gain of 7.5 Million.

    What part of "Keep him for the price of his dead cap hit" was vague?

    If he's going to cost you $1.5m either way then you tell him he can stay for $1.5m or get cut. You get a vet CB for absolutely no loss. And considering our CB room right now consists of Byron Murphy and Alford that seems like a smart move.

    Remember how many times he couldnt gain a damn yard on 3 and 1 & 2nd and 1. Thats when i started watch Travis Etienne and Najee Harris more.

    I see where you are going but you have to account under the cap for the $1.5M, which is the final tranche of his prorated bonus and is already in pocket. You either respect the contract as is or sign a new agreement but you can't circumvent the $1.5m in doing so.

    So signing him to a new 1-year contract (say $1m) is in fact a $2.5m charge against the cap in 2021.

    I guess since it's a speculating thing I'd say Zane.

    I can see Isabella, I can see others but Zane is the guy who very clearly cost us more than one win last year. I know the temptation if you can fix him you have a guy with a good leg, relatively young, for a bunch of years. If you let him go and someone else gets those years you feel stupid.

    But the #1 thing for a kicker is can you count on them to make kicks when you need them, and we can't with him.

    I agree. There are plenty of kickers out there with strong legs. With kickers, once a headcase, always a headcase. Time to move on from Zane. For me, more so than Isabella.

    I say we go ahead and cut the Cheese. I have never known him to do anything but stink up the place. We could certainly replace him during the draft, even as late as R5.
