Linc ...

I've also heard that the Genius, as some call him, has restructured Ertz and that the team has had interest in Hankins, Giants DT. Anyone remember Wendy's old commercial, "where's the money?" laugh.gif

It also appears that the Genius is negotiating the release of Daniel to limit/lower the cap number for the Eagles. Here ...

Last night, Ertz was 5.6M cap.

Tonight he is 3.02M.

Don Howie did some figgerin' and moves some numbers around and voila!.

2.6 M magically appears.

If I get a chance I'll check on the details.

I read somewhere that some of Ertz's 2017 salary was converted to roster bonus.

That didn't sound right, so maybe it should have been signing bonus.

I saw that too. Doesn't sound right.

Salary counts all against cap as does a roster bonus.

Unless they pushed the roster bonus into next year, which isn't a good move for Ertz.

I will check into it.

It says here that it was converted to bonus, but no roster bonus is listed. So it must have been a signing bonus.

I can't compare it to what the details used to be, because the sites have the new details.

BTW, on the Eagles page of OTC, on the right, Daniel's dead money is listed as $7M which matches what it was supposed to be. So it appears that they didn't reduce his guarantee before release. Maybe he didn't have offset language and they added it, which seems like it would have an impact next year.

Also, OTC has our available cap at 6.1M excluding Foles contract that isn't listed yet.

It's also possible that they don't have Daniel's release specifics yet.

Not much they can do with his other than they likely added offset language....Daniel was going to give money back even if he could
