    I'd say he fell off in the second half of the year - and by fall off, he fell off a cliff

    Yeah, makes me think they have given up on extending Thuney and this was one of their backup options.

    The dead money on Chung goes up and that's not something they wanted to do if they could've avoided it.

    I think this could also be a signal that a Dugger signing is imminent.

    It doesn't matter how much extra money he's getting.. The fact is that he lost more than step last year and was more a liability than a help. Granted, he was still better than Brooks, but not by much..

    pretty much. Belichick has swung and missed in the draft since 2013. Passed up on more all pro offensive talent than you can imagine. Thank god Brady and Gronk were around

    Belichick walks on water here. He gets defended every move he makes. Don’t worry when he retires, all his minions will go with him

    1) the money is the same
    2) we should keep him on the team since he is better than Brooks in the depth chart.
    3) the team helped the cap buy moving money into the future

    So, what should the team have done? There seemed to be no harm here, and a gain.

    You are acting as if Chung being here make Duggar a guy without a role.

    Chung's presence doesn't make Dugger a guy without a role...Dugger's mere presence does, all by itself...

    Nobody should be shocked if Dugger doesn't see much of the field this season, especially coming from a small school. The Chung signing shouldn't freak anybody out. Chung is clearly on the decline and Dugger should beat him out by next year's training camp. However, I won't hold my breath on that one. If it doesn't happen by year 3, there could be a real problem.

    There are many contenders for that title.

    More interesting, what would they be if Chung retires after the current season? I’m assuming that this move creates some dead money?

    What does Chung freeing up money have to do with his playing time?

    The dead money after this year created by the move is equal to the money saved on the cap this year. In other words if Chung is cut next year they simply borrowed 2021 cap money.
