    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    You very well could be right. But the way the tweet (didn't read the full article) said, "How do you like him?", that, to me, means he's getting an initial question, not a confirmation from a previous conversation. And as for Bruce possibly wanting Doug to not spill the beans, not sure why it would have to be handled the way it did where he didn't find out till the next day. Seems a bit disrespectful to the SVP of Player Personnel, IMO. In any event, if they didn't really want the deal leaked till the new league year, they couldn't have done a worse job at it.. lol

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    In thinking about the Kim Martin article in regards to whole trade situation for Alex some more, I think it may have something to do with separation of duties. I can see Doug being involved with the scouts coming up with a list and then letting Bruce know that's who they think is best - at which point Bruce takes over and does his thing - which is negotiate with the Chiefs. The only thing that is surprising to me is the FO not at least keeping Doug in the loop on the result. He didn't need to be there for the negotiation itself, but to be left out knowing the result only to be informed of it the way it was stated in the article is kinda disrespectful, to me. Also shows a lack of trust... Anyway, just saw this nugget as well... Woulda thought Jay would have had some input on who he liked ahead of time but perhaps not...

    Dan Steinberg on point here... Can't say I'm surprised by what Kim Martin wrote in her piece...

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    IIRC, that was a PFF rating where he was leading the league on PA Passes a few weeks before the end of the season. He was surpassed by Mariota in the final couple of weeks

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    With Scot going to the stacked Browns FO now, I'm so damned envious of them. Cap space galore. Draft capital galore. I know they still have Hue as their HC but holy cow, they sure appear they are primed to make a big leap in the standings... And then... there's us. /sigh

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I don't see much drop off between the top rated QBs this year and ones that will be selected on day 2. Regardless of the Kirk situation, we need to grab a QB in the draft. I'd rather see the team pick up a BPA stud with our 1st pick and get a QB on day 2..
  7. the way i read it, it's 4m over the 2 years.. so 2 per... + the incentives to reach 7 (3.5 per)
  8. Only problem with this is the funds from a June 1 cut don't actually hit the cap for use until June 2 and I doubt Breeland would wait 2 and a half months for the Skins to sign him.. He'll have plenty of suitors.. Starting corners are hard to come by. My guess is he'll get signed by someone early once the FA bell rings on 3/14.
  9. That's correct. That's the part that would become dead cap if we were to cut him in any of those years. An outright cut would incur 9m in 2018. And I should edit my previous post about pickup up 14m in savings. That's only if it's a June 1 cut. If outright cut, the cap saving would only be 8m. I hope he's open to renegotiation and a lowering of his salary demands this offseason in order to sign others. Kinda doubt it though. Yep, that's what's called restructuring - where future salary is turned into signing bonus and pushes out cap consequences down the road. This was a typical Vinny move which we've gotten away from when Bruce came along (his only saving grace, IMO). Everything hinges on what we do with Kirk, as you know. We can be players for some higher end FAs if he goes, but barely a player if he signs - even if it's on a LTD structured in a way to get a low 2018 cap hit.. I'm on record for not wanting any tag. That said, not gonna turn this into a Kirk thread.
  10. There is no guaranteed money in the last two years of the deal. The cap numbers are $14.5 million in 2019 and $15.5 million in 2020. They could let him go prior to the 2019 season and incur a $6 million dead cap charge; the dead cap drops to $3 million in 2020 Didn't see the exact date from my research but that would be the 3rd day of the new league year and you're correct, his 2018 contract becomes fully guaranteed then. Decisions, decisions...
  11. I agree with the renegotiation tactic but it has to be agreed to. Not sure Norman will take a pay cut or add voidable years. The other option is a restructure but that's what got us into cap hell when Vinny was around. Personally, if Norman looks himself square in the mirror and thinks he played up to his 20m cap hit in 2017, he's gotta be fooling himself - regardless of the ribs and lung issues. Some here will point out his leadership and swagger he brings to the defense. Personally, I'd rather have less of that and more play making ability. He's getting long in the tooth as well for a CB. Darrell Green being the exception to the rule.
