Odds and Ends and Smoot and Brunell
Frost got tendered today (actually received the $850,000 contract). Boschetti did not but the Skins told his agent they would be interested in bringing him back at a lower salary this offseason. So he becomes a UFA. Can not say with complete certainty that Molinaro - the other restricted free agent on the roster - did not get tendered, but I would be stunned if he did.
Also, got off the phone with Smoot's agent about 2 minutes ago. He hasn't been cut yet. Will he be cut? Almost certainly. Could it happen later tonight? Sure?
Has he been informed of his release as of this minute - no.
When it does go down, as I have been saying, look for the Skins to be in the mix.
Okay, I think that's all I have for now. Want to sneak in a lil time with Chloe and give her a bath, then I'll be on the cell all night in the basement, so if I get anything else I'll let you know.
Oh yeah, shoot, the Brunell cap hit is now about $3.3 from what I hear, down from $6.7. he gets around the vet. min in base (820,000), and has a June roster bonus that kicks in after mini camp (I believe around $1 million). So, if for any reason the labrum is still a problem and he can't go, the Skins are off the hook if they want to get out; they would carry his camp number through the spring but will have paid him nothing.
Throw in the existing proration from his original signing bonus ($1.5) and, viola, there you have it for a new cap figure. Also, he would get some small roster bonuses just before the season, but no signing bonus and nothing guaranteed.
