Default Who would you cut for Lecharles Bentley?

assuming hes 100% and being that he was just released how much would he be worth?

Mahan is a given, but it may mean letting somebody like farrior go.

max starks contract is worth more than what bently was scheduled to make but it is guaranteed

i think mahan + hartwig would probably amount to his asking price.

Mahan, because cutting someone vital to team success for a guy who could get injured hat easily again is something I wouldn't do.

our cap situation is such that in order to sign lecharles we would need to cut more than mahan.

we could do just about anything though if we convince hines to restructure and extend.

I don't understand why we didn't make any cuts already to clear up cap space! Mahan, Dookie and W. Reid should be done here, they should have been cut June 1st.

Any money saved from a release should go toward the D-line. The grass isn't any greener over Bentley's way. The team signed a very good center in Hartwig.

Foote's going to be given the chance to keep his starting job. He knows the defense and would be a very valuable backup if he loses his job to Timmons.

Dookie should be gone.

Ried will be gone.

Mahan may stick around one more year because cuting him would be a big cap hit on next season's cap from what I have heard.

I don't think Bentley is healthy enough to play center or gaurd right now. He hasn't played in a football game since 2005. He's nowhere near game shape, and he's probally lost a lot of the muscle mass he once had. That is probally why the Browns were going to use him as an insurance policy.

And what exactly did he expect the Browns to do, not find someone capable of playing center? Just wait until he got healthy, IF he got healthy?

And it probally didn't help his standing with the team that he did all his rehab in Arizona. When Winslow had to rehab his injuries, he did it in Cleveland. When Edwards had to rehab his knee injury, he did it in Cleveland.

If I were the Browns paying him $18M to rehab, I woulda made him do it in Cleveland where we could monitor him.

best of luck to you guys getting him, as I think he's on the downslide with all the injuries and such.

The thing about cutting Foote is that you lose a lot of depth at the ILB position. If Foote is gone that leaves Humpal as the first backup on the inside.

"all the injuries"?

hard to call catching the "cleveland clap" or "brown staph" an "injury".

anyways, i doubt we get him, BUT if no team takes a flyer and he is willing to play for mahan money just to stick it to the browns "i can see him in B & G".

as far as being on the downside, i think hes only 28 years old
