So, this was the master plan of Tom Telesco? Now we trade Sean Lissemore back to the Cowboys for twice what we payed for him?

About time. He has been injured for over a year, how is that even possible without serious injury. Has just been a distraction especially after his DUI

Jason Garrett doesnt screw around. Dude will cut anyone. Shocked

Most accountability that weve seen in years.

Anything the team or media says about his physical health is a load. Maybe his mental health.

Clarence Hill ‏@clarencehilljr 57s
Ratliff will be paid his full $715,000 salary this year. The rest of the dead money from contract will on 2014 cap. Off the books in 2015

Source, said the move was best for both sides. There wasn't about any anger or animosity from the Cowboys, just simple business

Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon2m
Jay Ratliff will count $6.93 million in dead money against the Cowboys' cap next season.

I dont understand how this is working exactly. According to the above ESPN link, he save $625k this year. There is 6.9M in dead money, but he was supposed to count 8.2. So are we savign 1.3M in next years cap too?

---------------------

http://overthecap.com/cap.php?Name=Jay%20Ratliff&Position=DT&Team=Cowboys

According to that, there is a 6M cap loss for cutting him this year. We dont have 6M... so it must be less due to the season being 1/3 of the way over?


--------------------------------------------------------------------

So I think that this move saves us 1.3M next year, and then a total of $30M is off the books from 2015-2017

Nothing beats Jerry money. He'll pay you even when you tell him that you can't play.

Two 7ths? Hardly. Lissemore was traded because he doesn't fit a Tampa-2 defense.

So how much will Ratliff actually end up with in his pocket as a result of the deal?

Man, a few years ago this guy was one of the top players at his position. Crazy how quickly some players drop off the map.
