    Unlike many speculative Burgh scribes, Schefter typically knows what he is talking about.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    So why not cut him now so they are free of his cap hit next year?

    How much dead money next year?

    Why not bite the bullet and take the hit this year and free ourselves of the dead money next year?

    If Woodley isn't a post June 1st cut, his cap hit would end up higher than his cap number...you might as well just keep him on the roster...

    You would cut him not to save this year's # but all the money he is due in future years.

    As a post June cut, how much in dead money is there next year?

    I know he's been hurt but I can't help but think cutting him is really going to bite us in the ass.

    There will be some next year...but, the number is too high to absorb this year...especially if they can't come to an agreement with Worlids...it would be a total of $23 million on two players, neither of whom is the franchise QB...

    Round numbers by my recollection:

    If pre June 1 he would count approx $13M against the cap, which he is scheduled to count if he stays on the roster.

    If post June 1, he counts approx. $5M against the cap this year (savings of his $8M salary) and approx. $8M next year (remaining portion of his pro rated SB with his restructuring factored in.)

    Yea if true, it does not make a lot of sense yet! Maybe they are thinking let him hit F A market and then get him back with a new contract, IDK if they can do that, I am just hoping what ever they do that it makes some kind of sense down the road!!
