Like how they never even bothered offering Tate a deal so that they could pay Percy two million per catch last year? Or like how they cut Robinson too late for him to catch on anywhere else last year, or like how they cut one of their team captains one year after extending him to avoid giving him his roster bonus because they decided they liked a rental FA better?
And I'm not even remotely bagging on the Hawks at all. EVERY fan of every team is living in a glass house when throwing those stones.
Well, by the way, you are comparing apples and oranges. Re-doing a guy's deal =/= not offering Tate a deal. Robinson was sick and got a tryout with the Titans, but was well under his playing weight even then. He got back to his playing weight and, hey, look at that, he got a contract!
The cuts this past year are the cuts. I'm just talking about re-structures. When a guy has earned more than he's making, so far, they have worked with that guy ASAP. Clemons, Sherman, Baldwin, Thomas, etc.
You're trying to move the goalposts just enough to make a point that isn't quite what we're talking about. Nice try with the red herring.
