Spotrac - Willie Snead
I love looking at overthecap, can always find the cap we are losing from stupid moves. Still paying Browner, solid move

You are right. That would have never happened if Jeff Ireland would have been around back then. Thanks for pointing out how much better the front office is today and how we can look forward favorably to the future!

I hope we can, I really do because this is still the present since we are still paying him. I can't look at it as in the past yet until his money is off the books. We are presently paying BB money

... for a mistake that was made in the past and is more than likely not going to happen in the future. They could have made matters worse by keeping him on while paying him base salary and roster bonuses over his guarantees. That would have eaten up more cap PLUS it would have wasted a roster spot with a penalty machine. As an alternative, I LOVE seeing that Browner "dead money" on the books.

Now, we know where Snead gets his blonde hair!

Looks like a happy family found their Ambassador of Kwan, the real-life Jerry Maguire...

Kinda makes you feel good that another 3X cast-off UDFA, finds gold with the Saints...

Maybe he breaks this jinx on recent Loomis Free Agent signings?!? Fingers Crossed!!!

Pat Kirwan talked about this very scenario yesterday on Movin' the Chains on NFL Radio. He said it is very common that players get frustrated with their agents trying to get so much out of a deal that they begin to lose track of what the player actually wants. At that point other agents start approaching the player and the player fires his agent to get the ball moving again.

Snead compares favorably to Colston. We can't guarantee a draft pick will produce and Thomas is the only receiver due a large contract. The man deserves to be paid. So pay the man.
