Surely they get salary off the cap if they trade him? Prorated bonuses, sure, but if he has a 22m cap number and only half of that (just guessing) is prorated bonuses they still clear 10 mil plus in cap space for example....
Must be something like that or they wouldn't be entertaining it? Surely?
Anyway my take is that for once we're pretty set at the DT position so we have no need to make a major investment. How great it is to be able to finally say that......
