Roughly about 11 mil I believe which puts us only 2 million over the cap if those 3 players are released

Then with loomis working his renegotiation magic it would free up quite a lot

Smith has a 10 mil cap hit this year

Vilma is 3.7 mil this year I think

Ellis is a free agent so he doesn't count unless re-signed

Right at 14 mil saved I think

The immediate cutting of Spags and Flajole a few days after Paytons return tells me that they want to get a new DC in there quickly and the remaining cuts will be on the new DC.

I think that would be the perfect way to clear up some of the salary cap mess, because i like Bunkley as our starting 3-4 NT and I also like Hicks as his backup, we would just have to find a 3rd and a RE which I am sure we will draft a number of defensive players who can work into the 3-4 system in the upcoming draft

Where do you all think Greg Romeus will fit into our 3-4 system or do you think he is on the outs as well. I know a couple of posters lobby for him and thought that he would grow into a solid contributor.

Romeus has to stay healthy before he can show anyone anything...

Romeus is an interesting case, IF he stays healthy he is a little bit of a tweener

Same physical build as Martez Wilson but a bit heavier

6"5 267lbs

I think he could do play both positions, as a stand up OLB or as a DE in certain situations, he has the size and speed to do both

One thing about him is injuries, I'm pulling for him to stay healthy, I think he could be incredible if he shook the injury bug

Re: _____________ doesn't fit a 3-4 scheme!!!!

I don't want them to re-sign Shanle nor do I think that they'll do it, but if he is re-signed to a 1-year deal for the vet minimum - I can live with that since he can be easily cut if they need the roster spot for someone else later on.

Anything above vet minimum is an overpay for Shanle's services IMO!
