Re: OT: McNabb didn't know a tie was possible
Here's an intresting tidbit i got from PFT:
With a 2009 base salary of $9.2 million and a remaining bonus proration of $1.16 million, dumping McNabb would create more than $8 million in 2009 cap space.
Carrying the $1.16 million in dead money would be no big deal for the Eagles, especially since they pushed more than $10 million of 2008 cap surplus into 2009 via a phony eight-figure LTBE incentive given to fullback/defensive tackle/fullback/defensive tackle/fullback Dan Klecko.
In all, McNabb is signed through 2013. His salaries after next season are $10 million, $12.07 million, $14.1 million, and $16.2 million.
There is no bonus proration remaining on the deal after 2009.
Trading McNabb is a longshot, absent a significant restructuring of his deal.
I wonder if they would do it? Just cut McNabb? The cap savings would be huge, although the next year is uncapped, so I don't know how that would work. But that is alot of money for a guy who doesn't seem to be able to carry the team.
The Jets look like a Super Bowl contender right now about as much as Rosie O’Donnell looks like a threat for the Miss America crown. -NY Post 12/19/2011
