    LOL You poor thing.

    We cut Rob because even from the 35-yard line he's not booting balls back often enough. Only 1/3 of his kicks are touch backs, thats pretty lousy.

    We haven't signed a single FA over 28 years old. Who are these 30 year old bums you speak of?

    We have not cut Wimbley. The point of cutting Stewart is that he is not longer any good This is not the Marxist Football League. You do not pay players just because you have money. And you do not need to spend money just because you have it. Spend smart.

    I doubt we extend anyone right now, we're a team in transition, not the time to hand out money considering we have no idea how well those 2 will do under the new regime.

    Completely joking. Just wanted to see the reactions. While reading i remembered that Johnnys number is 2. I have no problem with the move

    We're overpaying Wimbley, so by your logic we should cut him too just because it's not smart money. But in reality, it is smart money to overpay Wimbley if we have no one else to play the position at his level.

    Now we may as well keep CJ and Kam.

    Ah man this one stings although I know it's the right move! Definitely one of the best kickers in NFL history. His accuracy % proves that.

    It's clear he's been on a decline though, must of us had been saying that the last 2 years. 36% touchback is lousy and he's been in the 20s of accuracy among kickers the last 2 years also.

    He's going to be hard to replace though. Can't always get lucky the way we did with him. We'll look to camp invites and pick the best of a competitive bunch.

    It saves the $ but we're unlikely to spend it anyways. Should keep us in good position down the line to keep guys like Casey, Brown, Morgan, Wright & Ayers.

    This move makes me think we will keep checking another year..There just aren't a ton of players out there worth big contracts so our team really cannot get better in 2014 by cutting him and spending that money on average bums.
