Freeman Released

Recommended Posts

Well I'll take a different approach. Thank you FREE for  all the good memories during the good times you helped us get to the SB. I hope you handled your money well. Why do some people only talk about the mistakes? On another note someone in the FO is making some tough fiscal decisions even if DQ is BuddyBuddy with the players. That seems different for the FO

Sad to see Free go. I will always remember him on Hard Knocks just being so overwhelmed by having money. Hope the best for him going forward but it was a cut that needed to be made. Hopefully the FO learns from their mistakes after trimming the fat and creating some cap space.

Yeah, I'll never get all the hate for Free. He ran hard and was an awesome back when healthy. He just couldn't stay healthy and was never the greatest blocker, but he was a great teammate from all accounts. I'm sure someone will pick him up and he will have a pretty good season. I just hope he doesn't have any more concussions.

Not saying our RB core was that good before but it looks poverty af now.

Feels like they have to go RB with 1 of their first 3 picks.

We were last with him. Only place to go is up.

Dude sealed his deal after bullying the team into a contract SB week and then not owning up to missing that block. What happens when you hire buddies as representation. 

So he sealed his fate 3 years ago, but we waited til now to release him?

We really showed him, 20+ mil later.

He was too much of a question mark to take up a roster spot and top spot in the RB position to not cut him. Ito Smith is already Free's replacement. We just need an all purpose back to fill in the empty spot

The cap hits the last few years would have been worse if we cut him then. Also FO and coaching gave him all the chances to recover and show something on the field

Yes but still w/o him the RBs are even worse.

No one wants to see Hill or Ollison getting the bulk of carries.

Wouldn't have been able to use a penny of the dead money till June 1st though. I'm not sure TATF understands the designation

you can use it to sign the draft class if you spend everything else, now you need to leave about 4-5 mil freed up for the rooks no matter what
