So does this move save us $12 million? He had $2.5 million base salary and another $10 million from incentives. How’s that work for cap relief? Because if we just saved $12 million this was a no brainer with Italian Ice on the roster.

Bryant was amazing though, too bad he never got to make that field goal to win the game in the super bowl......

The release will save the Falcons close to $3 million this year and close to $4 million in 2020, and they’ll turn the reins over to Giorgio Tavecchio.

it saves 2.8 mil on the cap (most likely.unless) ....If we set it up as a june 1st cut it saves 3.5 mil on the cap

Usually depends on whether they're likely to be earned. Move frees up $2.88m in capspace.

He was a fantastic Falcon and a great man. He'll be missed.

I don't like this move. I know this is a business. I know that. But this guy earned the right to retire a Falcon on his own terms. Just my (emotional) take. I'm still furious he couldn't have retired on the unbelievably high note of kicking the game-clinching SB 51 field goal. F*** you, Shanahan.

Also, I like Lefty. And he was good in a truly clutch moment in the Giants game. But a play-off game, 50-yarder, game on the line? I still want Bryant.

We made it to the super bowl and should’ve won with a bunch of rookie/2nd year guys. 

Yup but what yall hate to admit is that 73% of that team was Smitty's players. The team moves backwards with the more DQ guys we add, but like I already said next year the excuse will be "they're rookie/2nd year players"
