    Titans declined a club 2007-2008 option ...

    (Rotoworld) Titans declined a club 2007-2008 option on LB Peter Sirmon's contract.Impact: He remains under contract for 2006 at this point.

    I'm kind of surprised that Volek restructured

    He didnt have that great a year in 2005. And maybe he heard from his agent there wasnt going to be a whole lot of market for him. Especially with the uncertainty regarding free agency.

    They are saying on 106.7 that Volek was not restructured, that he will remain under his current contract which keeps him here 2 more years.

    Also, McNair was not restructured, they just paid his 1 million dollars instead of giving him the 50 mill bonus extension, and keeping him under contract. It just gives them 2 more months to restructure, or cut him. He currently will count 23 mill against the cap, and would count 13 mill if cut.

    We still haven't gotten any official definitions of what they did. Both had their option bonuses declined. We don't know what else.

    Simon couldn't have done a straight restructure afterwards because his deal has just 1 year left now. He probably had to either take a paycut or signed a new deal.

    Volek has 2 years left now, but I can't see him having taken a straight paycut. He could have renegotiated to save a few hundred thou.

    Biding his time in as a backup in the AFL until some brilliant GM recognized his brilliant athleticism!
