If Ellis is cut, do we have to pay his salary?

No we take a cap hit but we don't pay his salary.

I'd vote for anyone who sacked Drew this year. This year, that was a very good trick.

Which brings up a question.

If we cut him, his cap hit is 2 million.
If we keep him, his cap hit is 6 million.

So basically keeping him only costs us 4 million for 2012.

Thats not a ton of money for a "decent" DT, and the player we sign to replace him will be at least 4 million.

IMO its cheaper to keep him, this year.

I'm hoping that if Spags finds him to be someone he can work with in order to improve his overall game and productivity - they'll work out a restructured deal, which would keep him with the team f.e. for 3-4 years, but with a lower base salary ~ 3M.

I mean there are a lot of DTs on the FA market this year, and it is not guaranteed he would land another job with another team if he was to be released, so they might be able to strong-arm him into a favorable contract.

What do any of you think we could get if we trade Smith and Ellis, I could go for freeing up cap space and a few picks, he!! I'd throw Vilma in this also??

man one so-so year for ellis and everyone has him on the block. His first two years everyone was gaga over him. keep him

Smith was not his old self this year and while cutting him seem like the move we will not get that much cap relief till he signs else where and even then we are on the hook for the difference. proceed with caution.

trade will? have to be tied into a draft day deal imo or the takers will be looking for a cheap deal
