    Question - They voided some guarantees on Earl. Did they immediately get to keep those savings, or was he still fully hitting the cap previously?

    And given that the cap rolls over nowadays, if his voided guaranteed cap space was still on their prior cap, would they gain that back?


    OR, did they still get immediately cap relief on Earl's guarantees the minute they terminated him for cause, and thats why its now just a 1.5 million loss on our cap in terms of the settlement?

    The Ravens received $10M in Cap savings by voiding his 2020 salary for cause. There should have been a $4M placeholder charge applied to the Cap when the grievance was filed, but for whatever reason, there never was. So, there’s no savings at this point, just the $1.5M settlement charge.

    Brian and I are going to do a short podcast on this topic in about an hour. I will post it shortly thereafter.

    What was the original number they were negotiating from? From what I have read the going rate seems to be around 20 percent. I wonder how they arrived at the 1.5M number.

    Found one that played it for me.
    Gave a pop-up asking to sign in or register, but did play the podcast for me without me doing anything else. Link in case anyone else needs it https://podyssey.fm/podcast/itunes15...e-Front-Office
