Loomis was smart to structure the contract the way he did. Although I'm sure he was trying to protect the team from Junior being a one-year wonder after 2013, not in case of something like this happening.
He still has like 16 million guaranteed, which we have to pay if he is cut... We can't do that...

I don't think it will come to that. It's hard to imagine the charges are that bad. But if they are, well, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.

I really want to see what happened here but my estimation of Galette has dropped quite a bit. And I wasn't even as high on him as a lot of people were last year.
I see a 15 mil cap hit this coming year.

???? you wouldn't be adding anything, just paying the guaranteed part of his salary that's already projected.

You all are far too concerned about the salary cap every offseason.

Yes. And 12.5 million of that is roster bonus. If he's not on the roster, he doesn't get the 12.5 million, and it doesn't count against our cap. We'd lose 750,000 in cap space this year (and some in future years, but I haven't look at that yet). But that's the only way it affects the team. Unless you are worried about Benson's money. (I'm not)
