FYI - cutting his base salary doesn't mean a thing IF he's planning on retiring.

Why is that?

The cap penalty is based on the signing bonus he took not the yearly salary he wouldn't get if he retired or was cut.

So does the cap penalty remain the same whether or not he plays again for the Chiefs?

It costs us more to cut him (or if he retires) than to keep him. The restructuring should only make the loss from cutting him worse (comparitively).

Well that certainly sucks..But thanks for the info anyway.! Never really taken the time to read up on the cap and it's guidelines. :rolleyes:
