yep. and i believe he will restructure to keep his job. some of these guys are taking big pay cuts. i don't know if it's job security but man, you're talking millions. i'd probably take the risk and get paid better elsewhere. there is no loyalty in playing for a team anymore. it's aaaaall business!
just ask p manning.

Most aren't losing money...they are just being paid differntly so it won't count against cap.

Palmer restructures...and now with the release of Eugene & Johnson, that should put us real close to the cap--maybe under?

Wimbley should restructure. I'm beginning to think this media news might be a little bit hype. I can see Wimbley signing at the last minute but not letting the media in on it until the very end. Everyone is restructuring and "buying in" to this team. It's starting to look like everyone believes in this team. Rebuilding phase or not--I'm kinda getting excited to see what they can do this year. They obviously believe this team is going in the right direction.

Curry should probably restructure too......and I hear he probably will--or at least is willing to.

And maybe McClain too.

The more guys restructure....the more we get under the cap....the more $$ we got to work with....the more FA's we can go after to make this team a competitor THIS year instead of next.

Let's see how many (and which) guys are willing to do that instead of just take their money and go home.
