This for many will be the make or break season for the Patricia (and likely Quinn) years. But they’ve got $18.6 million in cap and a very manageable list of free agents that need to be either paid or cut. There is the looming NFLPA contract to be negotiated, that’s probably neutral in the big scheme of things. But at least they’re not looking at a daunting list of guys who must be paid this offseason.
I’m assuming they cut Daniels, barring a major turnaround in his fortunes. That a good chunk of change they’re currently spending that can be filled by a draft pick. A bunch of these guys can be resigned cheaply or cut for better players. And a good draft can replace a few of these guys on the cheap. I dunno, I think this provides some room for optimism.
