    What do you mean Titans not honoring a re-structure? They paid Byard 8 more million in guaranteed money last yr… Byard was happy to make that money and avoid being cut last yr. He and the Titans were fully aware of what this would do to the future cap…

    Sucks to see him go, but just ain’t got the cash for that.

    the bigger issue I have is how willing the titans are for that dead cap space just for a small amount of usable cap space.

    how long does the dead cap stick around? Is it just the next year?

    The majority should come off at the end of the 2023 league year. For it to affect next season it would have to be post June 1.

    Yeah, I was just confused about what was done with his restructure. For some reason I was thinking it pushed money back and then the team decided not to pay. My bad.

    It could also be hogwash and not a conversation the Titans have had with Byard.

    Byard is one of the best Titans all time. Don’t want to see him go and not sure it’s worth it with so much dead cap.

    But he deserves to end his career on contenders and we need to spend that kind of money on a corner instead of a safety in the secondary.

    Pretty sure restructures are in the player's best interest anyway. They get guaranteed money upfront and usually a longer "term". Whether they get cut or not, they still get paid, and I'm pretty sure they get more than what the pre-restructure was.

    Finically, it would actually be best-case-scenario if Byard was cut. Someone else would pay him a fair salary and the Titans would still owe him the dead money. I don't think it makes sense for any player to reject a restructure (unless it's a pay cut of course).
