Mike Lombardi of SI.com has a great article on how he would deal with an ucapped year. It is clear that he has worked with Belichick by some of his thoughts... A certain, precious few players are untouchable. The term "football-lifer" comes to mind. BB's blueprint, be the best 1-53 in the league, not just 1-20. Uh huh. I think we've seen this before. True BB, only control what you can, do your best otherwise. In short, if this is the best way to go, BB will have this team very competitive as he is likely already laying the groundwork for dealing with an uncapped situation. I didn't see this posted already. If need be, please merge.
