    I think what people forget about NFL contracts is that only the guaranteed up front money means anything to players. So for the right guaranteed money we could sign Cutler to a very nice CAP friendly deal.

    Whatever maximizes the remaining cap money to buy a defense. That's my vote.

    That's what I would do too and that's what I think will end up happening unless Cutler accepts a "below market" deal.

    It's hard to justify paying Cutler a LT "market deal" given his age, injury history, turnover issues, and lack of postseason wins. Don't get me wrong, I want him to be here next year and think he's by far the best option to be the starter but I don't think a LT deal is justified (unless it comes at a discount) when you have the FT option to use.

    Use the lions share of resources rebuilding the defense, get Trestman a rookie QB he can groom (for better or worse who knows), and kick the can down the road one more season on this decision.

    I like it, but neither the Lions nor the league would go for it!

    Use the "majority share" of resources to rebuild the defense...how's that? ;)
