I hope there is a big move.

Obviously opens up a bunch of money, are they going to throw $$$$ at Wallace?

Frantically freeing cap space? I hope this is a drop and resign at a lower rate.

Who's being signed? That's what I wanna know. Clearing a lot of money. Loadholt and trading for Cruz? Signings Wallace or Jennings. What's up Rick....

This has to be either Wallace or Cruz.

What's strange is that they could have re-done Jared Allen's contract and freed up the same amount of room.

Possibly Talib or Grimes?

They better have a plan here. I'm willing to be mildly patient and let the next few chess moves play out, but while I'm understanding and largely OK with the Harvin trade, not a big fan of this move. Winfield's locker room presence, his sure tackling, and what I envisioned his next role being (sort of that hybrid safety/slot corner/linebacker ala Woodson) will all be missed if this is true.

He wasn't going to play on this team forever, even with still good production.

I just figured he'd be gone when we had a plan in place... don't know what plan that is at this point...

Don't like the move of releasing Winfield at all, really thins an already shaky secondary with injury issues

Wow...

Like others have said, must be clearing cap space for a big move to be announced today.

Hopefully, they have plans to bring Antoine back... but that might be a tough one to do. Cutting him would seem to be the lesser option to having him restructure his contract. There's probably a few teams out there that could use a savvy, tough veteran player like him to be a finishing touch on a playoff-caliber defense.
