In response to rkarp's comment:
rental? BBand Kraft not only paid Hern million in bonus money that cant be recovered, he counts $4.5 this year and $7.5 next year against the cap... some one is dead. a young plyers career is in shambles and faces life in prison. he hurt his team with his actions, and his team mates as well there is no bright side, Rusty's trolling comment included...
THey already budgeted for the 4.5 this year, though. That was being budgeted for the second he singed his deal last year. Sure, his presence in potential gameplans is a loss, but it's not as disastrous (obviously) as you try to spin.
The key will be the cheaper, younger WRs we have in here now or what they do in FA (with the flat cap next year) in FA or a draft pick at WR next year, in order to offset the 7.5 mil in dead money next year.
After that, they'll void the deal for 2015 and beyond and will be fine. The cap should be raised in 2015, too.
It's funny how dramatic you are with our cap, but you downplay the disastrous cap position of the team you praised here for years now, the Jets.
Mark Sanchez, if cut, would have cost 8.25 million this year. But, they'll choose to play him as a lame duck QB this year and start all over again next year with Geno Smith at the helm. lol
The fact is, NE is so well managed by comparison to many teams, something as bad as this Hernandez situation, doesn't register as the disaster you are trying to spin it as.
7.5 million in dead money? I thought you told us all we were getting that back? What changed? Did I miss something?
