    Hunh? If BB gets Taylor and Peppers this off season he has figured out how to suspend the laws of physics and the salary cap.

    All this "we need an edge rusher talk." Didn't we sign Thomas for that reason?

    He'll use some jedi mind tricks and convince him to play for the vet minimum.

    We are getting Taylor I have a good feeling about it. At 34 taylor doesn't want to mess around he wants a ring.

    Pass rusher could put us over the top, or be the downfall of a stacked team.

    Another relevant point with this contract is that, as a traded player, there is zero cap charge to releasing the player during training camp. If he doesn't make the roster, no big deal, other than a lost future late pick.

    We might not even have to surrender the pick in that case. I remember us trading a running back... I think it was one of the Cobb or Cobbs to Denvera couple of years back, but then they cut him and we didn't get the draft pick. I think thats what conditional pick means.... Is this a conditional pick? or just undisclosed?
