There are so many ways to lighten the load that a teams salary cap hold, such as front loading a contract with guaranteed money. Mario Williams may make 13m per year but his cap number could come in somewhere around 8m or perhaps even less. I think there are several high priced vets that will be cut which will free up even more, not sure if that number is already figured into the 30-35m we are under? Vets like Scott, Ball, Hall among others will not be resigned. If I were in charge I'd cut Leroy Harris and put Amano back at guard where he obviously has had success and I'd venture to say he'd be an above average guard once again. Harris is a bust, it's because of his failure that we've had such turmoil on the inside. He was drafted to play center, like he did in College but it's apparent that he's just not very good, so they kick him to guard and he sucks there as well... anyone know how many holding penalties he had this year? The only option they had was to try to make Amano a center and we've all seen what happened there, yikes. Cut Harris, move Amano back to guard, be rid of Scott who was average, at best, when we signed him years ago, now he blows. Sign a guard in free agency and draft a center and guard this year. Hell maybe even Velasco can get a shot at a starting guard spot. The class of free agent centers is pathetic, minus Myers but I'm almost positive he'll resign with the Texans. Hardwick is way overrated and he is probably going to retire anyway. I think David Molk or Phillip Blake could start in their rookie seasons for us, Blake is entering the league at the age of 26 which is a negative, but he's a solid player nonetheless. Forget the whole notion of classifying SS and FS, in this day and age both safeties should be free safeties. The safety we replace Hope with should be fast, more like a big corner but he must be able to cover first and foremost. So I'd forget Barron, Harrison Smith... the big slower safeties. Rambling now but I can't wait to see what the F.O.'s plan is, keeping my fingers crossed for either Mario, Nicks or Myers however.
