    Saw that too. He was scheduled to make over $7MM per the report and both sides decided to go separately. Sounds like he did not want a paycut, atleast not whatever they were trying to talk him down to. Wonder what he is looking for, he is an upgrade over DJ in my opinion but probably atleast 3x the $$$ of DJ; Another option, if he is around in the latter stages of free agency his demands may drop and be within our cap structure.

    Two years ago I would have said get him. But now he's too expensive and too old. We're gonna need every single penny in the offseason and our defense needs to get younger. Bringing in vets every year won't help us fix the D.
