I don't think we're going to be able to find a trade partner. Teams are trying to shed cap space to get under the cap and go for the big dogs in free agency first. No point in trading for him and lose a draft pick when you know you can get him for less on the open market.

A great Saint. Quiet, humble, and just got the job done.

Good luck to you as well Darren.

You realize Jimmy Graham isn't the reason why we're making cuts right?

Probably not.

We haven't even started to restructure contracts yet and we're under the cap. If we wanted to keep Moore and Sproles, we could have worked something out to retain them. The fact of the matter is that Moore isn't worth 4+ million dollars any more and even though he was a fan favorite, it's a business. His production can be found at a cheaper rate elsewhere. As far as Sproles is concerned, since it appears we're going to focus more on a power running game with Ingram and Khiry, there's was going to be an odd man out between Thomas and Sproles... maybe even both.

I have a feeling we're going to make a big move in free agency.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

We started it last year on defense, and now this year on offense.

Man... Sad Friday night. I completely understand the moves, but losing Moore and Sproles makes my Friday beers a little less festive. We better not lose both Strief and DLP because this is a lot of change. Back to the topic though, perhaps a Dexter McCluster signing is in the cards to replace Sproles.

So much for that rumor that we were restructuring his contract.

I am sad about Lance, but I understand.

Sproles, well I am just not too sure about this at all.
