That's a good point, but ytou also have to look at Cap Space. Do you want to take away 2.1 mil in cap space this year or take away just 1.05 mil in cap space next year?
I say drop him if the Lions have a replacement that is better, even then why not keep him just in case of injury?
Truthfully I'd rather take away the cap space this year. We have re-signed all of our top need free agents and have enough left to sign our draft picks. Next year three of our four DE's on the roster will be free agents, as well as Holmes, Garcia, Bryson, Pinner, Backus, Joyce, "Dirty" Davis, Holt and a host of other lesser players. We will DEFINITELY need the $1.05 million next year more than we'll need the $2.1 million this year.
