Heath has two years and nearly $4M left on his contract, however Dallas can get rid of him next year and have only $900,000 in dead cap space.
This is what you would call a no-brainer. First of all, both Chidobe Awuzie and Xavier Woods almost make less combined over the life of their contracts. Secondly, both are better options both now and in the future. Lastly, $4M is too much for a guy whose best attribute is special teams play.
Sorry Jeff, we tried this thing out. It just didn’t work. No hard feelings but you’ve got to go.
While we are at it, there is another Cowboys secondary defender for whom it’s time to say goodbye.
Yes, Scandrick would cost the Dallas Cowboys $3.8M in dead cap space. Yes, that’s a tough pill to swallow. Too bad, I’ll take the hit on this one.
He’s supposed to be the leader of a young group of cornerbacks. If these types of plays are his idea of leadership, it’s best to cut bait now. The fiery attitude and chip on your shoulder mentality was great when your play backed it up. Being the surly guy who can’t get it done anymore is not a good look.
We’ll stay on the defensive side of that ball, moving to the line for our last release before looking at the offense.
