If we take him on re-entry, what would our cap hit be, and what would we be giving up?
We wouldn't give up anything, his cap hit would be 1.5mil for this upcoming season.
I don't disagree. I just am talking practically now. He might be the only way to improve the Defensive corp and get younger this season.
Correct me if I am wrong, but there is no re-entry process with buy-outs, is there?
If they are able to buy him out, he wouldn't be on their team any longer and there would be no need to re-entry waive him. If they waive him and no one bites then they either buy him out, which it sounds like they can't do, or they can put him on re-entry waivers and see if anyone will bite on him then.
