Alex Smith or David Carr- Starter
Whatever one wins, is the starter, other cut
2nd Nate Davis
3rd Tony Pike
Remember Denise York is cheap, if they can get away with paying the starter 3 million, and the two back ups 1 million she will jump on it.
Smith and Carr basically have the same contract . . . Smith's averages about $200K more per season. Except Smith's contract expires after 2010 and Carr's after 2011.
You are correct, so if they cut one before the season, the Yorks will save 2 million, the 3 million salary minus the 1 million salary the other qb roster spot will take.
I am not condoning this, I just think that Denise York is cheap, the lack of FA signings, and not extending Willis seem to confirm my thinking.
