I don't care about the compensation. Just stoked that we got rid of that contract.


Did I really read he was a near 6m cap hit this or next year?
Can we use that money to trade for Bowe and sign him long term?

We've gotta find something to do with it, that's for sure.

We can roll over the money next year. Hopefully we use that money to bring in Bowe, Jennings or Wallace.

One more nugget on new #Lions WR Mike Thomas? Four teams called Jags about him. Liked his potential especially before Gabbert took over.

They do. It's the 4th they don't have.

It's the equivalent of a 2013 6th rounder. Not bad, I suppose.

Yep. He was just going to be sitting there taking up cap space and a roster spot.

Without him on the roster, even if his cap hit isn't as high as thought, it seems much more likely that we'll go after a WR this offseason.

Please tell me the Lions are taking on his whole salary. Pray


It's gonna be weird playing against him this week. haha


Yes, taking it all.


Actually false. Hate the trade but this is not accurate


From the ESPN article:

Quote:
The Jaguars signed Thomas to a five year, $19-million contract in October 2011 but have already paid off most of the heavy charges. If his contract remained intact during the trade, the Lions will owe him a pro-rated portion of his $1.45 million base salary. He is also due a $1.45 million salary in 2013, of which $1 million is guaranteed.
