    I dont think the tag is 18M next year, its only 14M this year. But in any case...15-16M is going to kill our cap next year, i just dont see Emery tossing that money for a one year deal on a questionable QB, i think he is regretting tagging Melton this year (obviously it was nobody's fault, but still...have to think that is in the back of his mind).

    Okay if the FT is 14, and you are able to convinse him 50 mil at 4 years, that's still 12.5 mil(I don't see that happening btw), you are saving 2 mil to cripple you cap later. I'd take a 1 year 2 mil cap hit over another 2-3 years of 12 mil.

    The team has 50mil to work with, maybe more maybe less depending on who gets cut and resigned besides Cutler. So that's 36-38 mil to sign another 22 players, I know it's a lot of players, but not all are going to cost you 1+ mil per.

    Well, our #1 WR is a bit of a Cutler fan himself. If Cutler is cut loose, what are our plans for BMarsh? I'm not saying he wont be professional about it, but those two guys love playing together. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they BOTH give somewhat of a discount if they are both extended, and it's possible BMarsh demands a high $$$ if Cutler is shown the door.

    I don't think any columnist, reporter, or fan knows anything about the dynamics at play here.

    If Cutler is not re-signed, BMarsh likely asks for a trade to whatever team Cutler signs with. Which might be a good idea, because you do not want an unhappy BMarsh on your team. If he does not ask for a trade, he will not re-sign here, instead likely follows Cutler where ever he goes

    The difference is..FT salaries are guaranteed, that 50M or 100M contract is not guaranteed.

    If he does accept that 4/50 deal.. how much do you imagine would be guaranteed?

    Cutty gone, BMarsh gone, Draft another WR early to make up for the loss.

    i agree, I doubt Cutler would take 4 yr 40, but I wanted something that would actually be less then the FT tag to make a point, as cost inhibative as the FT can be, it's really not in comparisson to what you have to actually have to pay these qb's year in year out.

    I still think they FT Cutler next year, or sign him to a contract near 70-100mil(not that I would) and then they can keep Marshal happy for at least the rest of his contract.
