So eat a ton of dead money, meaning we have to cut half the team, and also create a gaping hole @ LT and get Matt more killed.....why?

You can trade much of that with the player

Trading Dead Money & The NFL Expiring Contract

Dead money has historically served as an impediment to the consummation of player-related trades in the NFL, but recent trends in contract structuring have opened up the possibility for the opposite outcome to take place: dead money as a driver of player-related trades. The new, and increasingly common, contract structures employed by NFL teams allow for dead money to be assigned to any team, whereas traditional contract structures rendered dead money “stuck” with the team which had originally signed the player. As a result, much dead money is now “tradable,” allowing for NBA-style transactions in which one team provides compensation to another team in return for taking on cap-clogging contracts.

Mathews contract isn't one of those. Also the gigantic hole @ LT you just created?

 

TD would have literally just thrown his job away.

MAYBE before we signed him to that contract and not in the middle of the season. We wouldn't have even been able to accept the trade without cutting like 12+ mil in other members of the team first as we would have been over the cap. 100% unrealistic scenario.
