I've been saying it for months, although it looks like nobody else worreid about it until now. There is no cap room on this team for Norm after 2021 regardless of 3%. They will be trading Powell if they trade anyone. So imo, that is not a big reason and 2-3 million doesn't change that. The only thing that changes that is FVV getting too big an offer elsewhere.
Literally, we ditch McCaw or Johnson and were are even.
It’s more about 2021 and those guys are off the team at that point. So it’s more likely now that we throw in our 1sts with Norm for an upgrade to drop the future salary of of the picks.
Those guys are signed for just as long as Powell. It's not anymore likely... he was always the prime guy we would trade because he has one year left before a big payday.
No, I get that and always knew that but once you ditch the McCaws and Stanleys you are still losing out on 3-3.5 million in wiggle room to play around the edges so this doesn't have zero roster implications. No one is just taking their salaries. Maybe we only carry 13 plus the 2 two-ways now for next season for example. Maybe the next Terrence Davis or Fred is missed out on.
