    Dead Money

    With as much as I can think of...Warner should be the only dead money left on the Rams books, I BELIEVE. This should be the last year we will have to worry about that. I am guessing we will be cutting Turley in June freeing up a good chunk and IF we can get the big guy signed we will have a HUGE AMOUNT.

    Am I correct on Warner being the last of dead money?? How much will this whole Turley crap cost us over the next few years? Little is yet another hurdle we will have to over come this spring. If by chance he gets put away for awhile, what then??

    I say we are in fine shape...WHY ARE WE NOT RE-SIGNING FISHER? If Little is gone because of legal issues Fisher would be a nice fall back. Also, Massey needs to be tied up long term now.

    Assuming turley is cut after june 1, the cap hit is 1.5 million this year and 5 million next year. As for little, i believe it depends on the circumstances, too early to tell.

    As for bryce fisher, i dont think its a matter of us saying we dont want to sign him, but more to the point that we cant afford to pay him as a starter when we have little and hargrove. If we can get him cheap enough, i am sure we would love to have him. Personally, i think he can provide some help not just in depth, but big time on special teams.

    I will be shocked given the desparate need for pass rush around the nfl if he doesnt get 8- to $10 million up front

    Especially considering how much money has been changing hands in free agency thus far. Gary Baxter gets $10.5M from Cleveland? WHAT!?

    This may answer the question of why Bruce isn't being asked to restructure this year. We're going to need his team loyalty more next year.
