DT Jason Hatcher- Losing Jason Hatcher would be a major blow to a position already thin but a $9 million cap hit if he is franchise tagged will not help the team either.  He had a career year with 41 tackles with 11 sacks.  Hatcher played very well this season including earning himself a Pro Bowl berth and being selected by Team Rice that included a 4th quarter sack of Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles.  As much it would pain to have him leave, he deserves the big money that Dallas can’t provide because of Jerry Jones the GM.  Do remember that Jones has to report to his boss, Jerry the owner so all decisions rely on him.  Final word: Let him go unless he can agree to a contract that is cap-friendly.

    If Waters wants to come back, great! Dump the rest and start over fresh for less money.

    Did you have to include Kitna on this list? He did us a favor. No need to say let him go. If Waters comes back great. Definitely let Hatcher walk. He is only in it for the money and probably has a gross over inflation of what he is worth. Let Spencer test the market and set a price for himself. Only take him back if he is cheap. There’s too much risk with this unmotivated player. I like Sims, but he is a back up since he is to small to hold his ground in the NFL.

      My thought exactly. Sounded a little harsh. I think Kitna’s a class act (no pun intended).

        Well, excuuuuuuuuse me! Didn’t mean to sound hardcore. How’s this: ” place the flat of your hand in the middle of their back and thank them profusely for their contributions as you firmly guide them to the doorway.” Works for me.

          LOL. Never occurred to me Kitna would even be considered to remain after the end of the season and therefore would never show up on a list like this.

            I like Belichik’s approach to hiring and firing. After all, players are getting paid a lot more money than they’d make on the street right out of college. In real life, getting the chop isn’t pretty.
