we don't save much by making him a 6/1 cut, so if we want him gone it likely doesn't matter when that is, but waiting till we know what potential replacements are capable of is the wise thing to do...do after rookie mini camps at the earliest is my guestimate.
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!

Good information. Thanks for posting this. :thumbsup: I hope you pin it until at least the draft.
