As far as the cap goes, Byrd wouldn't have been that much more costly.

Like I said, it's done with. Worilds is who they decided to downs $10 million on. And, I hope that Worilds stays healthy enough to continue his "sack per game" pace.
You just said it yourself. Why pay big bucks for a FS when we can get one off the street who can contribute? Why pay the big bucks to one when we really need to keep our OLB (and get a good CB)?
