If we had traded Cassel to the Titans for their #1 pick, and cut Vrabel as a cap casualty would anyone be whining? Essentially, thats just about what we did, because we got the 2nd pick in the 2nd, which is virtually the same as a late 1st. I think Vrabel was thrown in because we didn't have the cap room to want to keep him, KC did and BB let Pioli have his rights instead of just cutting him. There is no way we do this deal if BB intended to keep Vrabel on the roster, he wouldn't have traded him straight up for a 2nd with no replacement unless he was gone already. Expect a quid pro quo favor back from Pioli.
