Not extending Wake or Long to provide additional cap space in 2012. Trading Marshall and dealing with significant dead money in 2012. Not signing Flynn or Smith to big multi-year contracts. A number of players with 1 year contracts including Moore and Garrard. While all of this hinders the 2012 team it also provides signifcant cap flexibility in 2013. It sets them up to make critical decisions on how they want to buld the team after assessing the current players this coming year including Wake and Long's performance. I believe they will take this info and build a planto invest wisely in 2013 and continue to build thru the draft along with addition of select FA that fit the system andcritical needs identified in 2012. It seems clear that 2012 is an assessment year with a new coach in tow which willset up critical decisions and the abilty to put a winning team on the field in 2013.
