I know he's got the huge contract and all but it seems like such a waste to cut him, still pay him and watch him play for another team. Obviously, other teams will think they can hold out and eventually we'll be forced to cut him but maybe we've got more upper hand than we think. The franchise has treated him great for over a decade and he won't take a pay cut from $13 million - who's really the bad guy?
All in all I realize this is highly unlikely. As often as this sort of thing happens in the NBA, in the NFL it seems like this kind of situation always gets resolved in the player's favor.
I just wish there was some way to get the entire $13 million off the cap immediately - it really sucks for him to demand his release and for us to still have to pay. The whole policy behind why we still owe him guaranteed money is to protect the players from teams trying to screw them over. This sort of situation should not require us to do that.
