    x pro-rated; did not receive entire salary

    With this list, you can get a feel for who is under paid and who is over paid. So, using this list write in who you think gives the team value for the buck and those who don't. Remember, we are 13 million over the cap for 2013. Here's mine:

    1. Ben is the team, so he is safe in my book even though he didnt close out the season earning that money, he did pre-injury.

    2. Woodley. Wow. He didnt show up all season and to be the 2nd highest paid guy on the team (in base salary) just blows my mind. I almost would cut him if I were the GM. Do you give him another season? I guess you have to see if he can return back into a sack machine.

    3. Troy, James and Ike. James is the only one I would question here. He did seem to come together at the end, but at his age, what to do? I love the guy, but is his healthy playing days over?

    4.Willie Colon is good when he's playing but he's spent more time with the team doctor and trainer then with his team. Another tough decision.

    5. Timmons earned his money this year and he stay's put.

    6. From Miller down to Adrian Robinson I believe you bring back to camp.

    7. Unrestricted FA's...Who to offer

    A. Larry Foote - Yes...still adds value to the middle for 3 mil.
    B. Casey Hampton - No...Time to let the Steve McClendon experiment begin.
    C. Mike Wallace - No...would love to but no way to afford it.
    D. Mendy - No...the guy isnt right for this team
    E. Allen, Foster and Mundy all need to be re-signed
    F. K Lewis is awesome but he is going to command big bucks and I'm not sure we got the money
    G. Legs. - doesn't matter...can find his talent at his price all day long
    H. Batch - Sure, why not?
    I. Burress- See above
    J. Starks- Keep if we can keep it low, but he may be able to sign elsewhere for more
    K. Lefty - throw him away
    L. Warren and Kapinos - sign

    8. Restricted FA's

    Gotta try to keep all of them and it shouldnt be hard to do.

    The most undervalued guys are in no particular order: Ike, Casey, Foote, (Clark used to be), Starks, Will Johnson, Foster, Mendy, Sanders, Plax, Foster, and Batch

    What did Mundy show this year that he should be resigned?

    P.S. Kapinos isn't our punter any more

    Mundy played well, at times, and Troy gets hurt a lot. Kapinos is better then Butler. Bring him back

    Mundy didn't play well at all.
    Our defense came together when Allen came in to play safety.
    Mundy is a bum, kind of like when Carter was here.
    I'd rather see a younger guy step up and get playing time rather than that space taker-upper..LOL

    You're right, it was Allen. Scratch Mundy
