If we sign him and trade him, we eat his entire signing bonus under the 07 cap (or we can split it with 08, our choice). It makes little sense to sign him and then turn around and deal him. If you give him the bonus, you might as well play him.

We could give him a one year deal with no signing bonus, but he's not going to sign a deal that makes it easy for us to trade him if he can just sign somewhere else.

If you let him walk, you get nothing, but you also stay out of an even worse situation with the cap, which should be our goal next year.
according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

We shoudl not keep both betts and portis- unless he comes on the cheap- which he won't. he's gonna want to be someone's starter. the skins are portis' show...too much ego adn too mcuh salary in this town for 2 starters. Here's an idea, save the money and spend it on needs...or let portis go (tough to do) and do the same thing...we dont need both.

we aren't talking an antonio pierce situation here...who was the key to the D, we are talking about a back up RB (with talent)- but we already have a very capable starter...Betts is great, but we should not keep both.
Portis should only need a brief spell from a game- not to split time
in writing these daily letters and trying to make them interesting it is always possible that some sentiment may occur which has not received the severe and deliberate scrutiny and reconsideration which should attach to a State Paper.
