He will restructure Drew, work some magic and get us under the cap again. We will find a big free agent or two and hope to god there are different people on staff who know how to get the right personnel . The cap doesnt worry me one bit.
Byrd, Unger, Browner, Ellerbie were supposed to be upgrades and we got them signed.
Agree. And actually Galette is the only real glaring mistake. Had he now shown what an ass he was he'd still be here, and likely be that solid pass rusher we so desperately needed this year.
I know its all ifs and buts now, but the plan was fairly solid going into 2015. Still had a few holes but no more than most teams.
