Good call. It makes sense. The Bonus $ doesn't count against the cap.

Hey JBG, Mike, and Faith, Gibril Wilson was cut because he refused to restructure his contract. I know with Tommy Kelly, he restructured to where he wouldn't lose any money and some of what he owed was changed into bonus money instead of salary cap money. They wanted to do the same with Wilson, but he refused because there were other players that weren't playing as well that were not asked to do such a thing and he thought it was BS to have to do such a thing when he was one of the ones playing well.

Well that was just flat out stupid and ignorant. I guess he didn't want to be a Raider anyways. I was also stunned at Kalimba Edwards getting cut because he was decent, but Trevor Scott showed equal potential so it made sense to me. Ronald Curry wanted out for sure; Michael Huff said that he expected to be cut at the end of the season but I guess wasn't because Wilson was and then Cornell Green expected to be cut after his domestic violence charge but wasn't. I was excited that Kwame Harris was out since he was the league's leader in penalties and sacks allowed with Green right behind him at #2. Anyways, if Bonus money doesn't count against the cap and he wouldn't have lost any money then I find it hard that he made such a big deal out of it but if he doesn't want to be a Raider, then I don't want him in silver and black.

whats up jbgirl?(LOL)one of the main issues that RF1, was saying was that wilson protested,well, talked crap, alot of crap because d hall, was released. so, he was released as well. it does not mean you have to keep hush hush around the RAIDER org. but when you start to go outside of the org,and talking "too much" crap, you are distancing yourself out of the leauge! stay cool, i've always said =)
