    Starting to feel like AJ Brown all over again. Jrob wants to be the Patriots South so bad. But instead of Brady on a team friendly deal we have tanne with the biggest cap hit in the NFL

    There are plenty of places to cut on to get Jeff his money. Dupree, Lewan, Cunningham, and Woods to start

    Only problem I have with that list is the OLine and WR group is terrible and sadly, those 2 are the best of those groups. But they're both way overpaid.

    I’d pay for Simmons as a top DL, he actually is a top DL and will get used.
    Not so much on AJ Brown for either, not top WR or getting used.

    If we dont find the money for Simmons, I will be highly disappointed. We need him anchoring that d-line for at least one post-rookie contract.

    Slightly cheaper. We do have an out of we want it but I don't see us using it. Maybe restructure/extension?

    I think both a restructure and extension.
    Now, the extension is a real possibility due to lack of another QB on the roster and QB FA available. The fact that there is no QB to replace him does play into THill’s hands in maximizing money.
