I wonder what he's seeking for a contract?

I would hope somewhere between 1 million or 2 million... which is pretty fair IMO and affordable. If we did sign him, maybe Lyman's injury would be a blessing in disguise. Brown does have gas left in his tank.

1 to 2 mil is not affordable for a team with only 1 mil in cap space. We need to restructure or trade Howard (or someone).

I like Brown. He'd be an excellent 3rd and capable 2nd WR!

But remember we were seriously considering signing Chad Brown JKool, so I think we had something planned for the extra cap space.

Good point, papz.

I wonder where it'll come from? What do you think?

Great another short receiver... Is Dante Hall up for free agency soon?

No clue lol... I would think it would have to come from Gandy's money somehow. Can't think of another way since Howard isn't going anywhere.

Gandy is a good call papz. I think we should get him to restructure. I doubt we'd get much more than 1 or 2 mil from his restructure. That doesn't get us much room for insurance if someone gets hurt.
