    If Sherm can command 14 million a year would you pay it?



    i dont know where you got 14 million a year when revis is only making 12 million.. but hypothetically speaking if sherm can command 14 million a year yeah i'll tell you exactly what i'd do.. id trade flynn and use the 6.25 million that he's scheduled to be paid to pay part of sherman's contract as he is 100 times more valuable to this team than flynn is.. take away that 6.25 million from 14 and it would be a 7.75 million dollar net cap hit. yuppp gladly.


    I think when Sherm becomes a free agent its certainly possible he will be pushing for the highest paid corner.
    Do we keep him? It would cost more us than Flynn. Or next great find up!

    This post seems weird in the context of all your other posts in this thread. If there is no market for Flynn, how do we pick up a 4-7th rounder? If we cut him, don't we still take a cap hit in both seasons? If paying him to sit on the bench is bad, it seems paying him to sit on the couch would be worse. JMHO


    Flynn's signing bonus is counting against the cap at a rate of $2 million per season. they are allowed to split whatever remains between 2 seasons, so no matter what, at the end of this year if he's gone, they take that $4 million cap hit. The only choice is do they make it $2 million per year or take it all in one year.

    The funny thing is that Flynn is a free agent in 2015. His deal here is for only 3 years (2 more after this year). His deal expires at the same time as a lot of the players the OP is worried about paying. The whole thread is ludicrous when you really think about the math, but that's not going to stop some people.

    What!!! You're saying people here have ludicrous long term ideas discussing conspiracys that would never happen in the real world????

    Say it ain't so Sam.
