Balzer says McCleon may be cut??
Balzer was talking about the possibility of McCleon being a June 1st cut. Apparently if the Rams wait until June 1st McCleon will only count about $300K against our cap and they will save about 2.1 mill against this years cap. The negative part is he will then count 900K against next years cap when the Rams will need more space.
Balzer claims to have looked closley at his renegotiated deal last year and states that a major part of his bonus money was a 1.7 mil roster bonus that was paid last year and the majority of his cap number this year is a base salary of 2.1 million.
Now he did not say that this will happen. He just was speculating at things the Rams could do to clear space to sign draft picks or FA's. He feels they would only do it if they got a quality CB in the draft and a solid veteran who could back up Bly or start in his place if Bly were to falter.
Never Listen To RUMORS !!!!!
No Disrespect, But I Think "Balzer" Has His Wires Crossed.
If Anyone Gets Cut June 1st, It Will Be Jacoby Sheppard.
Dexter McCleon May Be Demoted To Nickle-back (Hey That's A Rock Band - Sorry, I Got Off The Subject There), But, He Won't Be Cut.
Jacoby Sheppard Is In Mike Martz's Dog House.
There's NO WAY This Guy, Will Be on The Rams ACTIVE ROSTER At The Beginning of The Season.
Which Leads Me To Believe -- If Sheppard Is Getting Cut -- Why Would The Rams Also Release Dexter McCleon ????
Doesn't Make Sense !!
Once Again (No Disrespect) But I Think "Balzer" Has His Wires Crossed !!!
