thats exactly what i was thinking. it would be cheaper to keep him and atleast try to get something out of him. we will be in no position to pay the amortized portion of those bonuses and have them accelerated towards next years cap.

the good thing is we were smart enough to give him 10-1 guaranteed, coming off injury.
