To those who want Brunell to restructure:

In another thread, several posters wondered why Brunell hasn't restructured his deal to lower his cap number. There's a very good reason.

If he was to restructure without taking a paycut, we would be basically turning a portion of his 2005 earnings into signing bonus. While that would lower his cost for this year, it would also increase the cap hit when he is finally cut - and rest assured, he will be cut. Brunell signed a seven-year deal with an $8.6 million bonus. His base salary this year is only $1.5 million, which means that only about 700k could be converted into bonus - but it means that (hypothetically) the cap hit for cutting him next year goes from $5.75 million to $6.4 million, which we will then scream bloody murder about.

Now, if you are talking about a pay cut, then I'm all for it. Now get Brunell to agree.

Yes - paycut I think people want. No sense in pushing off the money we owe him - just means longer to cut him!

Re: To those who want Brunell to restructure:

I'd be happier with job cut, at his expense. We don't need him, draft a low round prospect and let the new guy ride the pine for a few years.

Re: To those who want Brunell to restructure:

If they need a little breathing room to sign draft picks or other players closer to the season, sure, push a little bit till next year.
Of course the best scenario would be for him to take a pay cut, but I seriously doubt he would do it.

Re: To those who want Brunell to restructure:

Signing Brunell was the worst FA move ever. He even cost us a draft pick!!!

Re: To those who want Brunell to restructure:

Restructuring Brunel would be stupid. It only makes sense to restructure people who you see on the team long term. That would just make a bad cap deal worse.

Seems you skipped over 2005 in your numbers. Brunell's 2005 cap hit is only $3.433M.

Brunell considers himself a starter and is not about to accept a pay cut. This is a situation we will have to live with. Be great if we could trade him.
