    Starkiller is it possible to keep him this year under his current contract and not gut the team. Who could restructure and whats going on with Sirmon.

    What's McNair going to do, get all pumped up and try to run Haynesworth over? Wouldn't surprise me if he is hurt half the year anyway.

    Sirmon is the only quality player they'd have to cut to keep McNair (though they could trade Volek just because they don't need him). Dump Sirmon, Nickey and Wade to save about $3M in real cap room. Renegotiate Bulluck to save $3M more. That's probably all they'd have to do, though they could renegotiate with Kinney and Hentrich for another $1M in cap relief.

    I think we'll have to free up about $3M more to sign the rookies, $2M more for free space before the season (maybe a bit less), and $1M for Mac's bonus if they keep him.

    Looking at it that way, it looks as if it is a good decision to release Mcnair

    Thanks Starkiller you are always very helpful on the cap situations. If we keep him on current contract we have no dead monet for him going forward it would all come off the books at the end of this year?

    Whether we keep him or cut/trade him, there's no dead money past this year. That would be true for any player in the last year of their contract (such as Sirmon).
