    If we keep Favre, we won't have any money to sign Ray. We're 15 million over the projected cap.

If anything, we have a better chance at getting Ray if he leaves because he wouldn't be coming here on a discount. It's highly unlikely we'd have enough money to pay him even if Favre leaves, though.
      Absolutely. I think the major pull here is Rex, otherwise he's probably not that interested in us. He's already said that he isn't going to take a discount to play anywhere, so really I view it the opposite way. The only way we have a chance at Lewis is if we can get Favre and his albatross of a contract off our books.

      • Rex + a chance to play in the greatest city is what pulls him here not Farve. Ofcourse a chance to play with Farve is nice but hes more intrested in playing for Rex till he retires, Hope we scan get him to play here

        • We NEED Favre to retire. We need the cap space, plus I mean why would we keep him when he's obviously washed up. Like someone said ahead of me, if he was any other position he'd be gone. He needs to go now. We'll pick up the pieces, sign some FAs, and be better for it.

            I think his motives are # 1. $$, # 2. $$ and # 3 Rex

              Even after we cut Favre, we'll be 2 million over the cap. Cutting Barrett as I said before will get us about 2 million under. I wouldn't be holding my breath for any FA's, we're going to be lucky to sign all of our picks.

                I think we spent too much money on Pace last year.

                • Hopefully we can restructure some bonuses over the life of some contracts to save some money on the cap this year. Unfortunate our cap number is so high though. Hopefully there are some guys that come off soon because we have some young guys on rookie contracts we'll be hurting if we can't keep on to.

                    Somewhat agree, but he played really well for us, and I don't think we could have gotten him for any cheaper. God knows we would have been screwed if we had to play Gholston anymore.

                    Here's a good website (obviously not official, but it's pretty close, but one of the best compilations I have really seen.)

                    Hopefully we can restructure some guys as Derza said, it would be nice to bring in at least one solid guy other than a rookie. Although, it will be quite tough to get any of the big name guys.

                        • Apparently we're looking at OGs, so it looks like Moore is going to get cut. I'm pretty sure Barrett will get cut and Baker likely will as well. So after that... if Favre leaves, that'd leave us in a pretty solid position.

                            Yeah I actually was thinking the same thing the other day. Cutting more saves us like 5.5 million which is pretty solid, Baker's another 2 and Barrett's like 3.5. I'd imagine at the very least Barrett's gone, probably the other two also. Wouldn't be incredibly shocked to see Ellis or maybe even Bowens get the axe as they'd save us money, but I would be a little surprised. Hopefully Favre is gone. Who we cut could really have a big impact on what we draft...should be very interesting and open up a few more positions to look at.

                            • I dont wanna cut Ellis hes been here for a long time now and had a productive year last year. I think he still has atleast 2 years left in him

                              • I agree I'm just not so sure how he fits with Rex's scheme...probably well but maybe we want some youth at the position I dunno. He's one of the few guys that would save us money on the cap which is the only reason I bring it up.

                                Alright guys I'm looking to get a jersey but not sure who to go for. Out of the guys on the team now I've got a green Rhodes and a green Coles...all of my whites are from retired/traded guys so I'd probably like to go white. My leaning is Revis but...any other suggestions?
