    Hey Kevin,

    I had a few somewhat cap related questions for you.

    1. In Quintin Mikell's contract, how much cap room do we save in 2013 if we release him? Reading the information out there, it seemed that he had 2011 8 million dollar bonus that was prorated through the life of the contract. If that is true, I think we'd save only 3 million if we cut him vs. 7 million if the bonus was split in 4 non-guaranteed parts. That's what was confusing me. I could also be wrong and the bonus was already paid and accounted for on past caps. So I'm just wondering mainly about that specific contract.

    2. In establishing market value for a player, how difficult does Danny Amendola's situation make your job? What I mean is that Amendola is a slot WR but at the same time, our best WR. In the past, slot WRs have made far less(ex. Davonne Bess and Lance Moore) than outside WRs. So how do you find an accurate valuation for a guy like Danny at newer niche type position?

    3. How do you weigh history and leadership vs. expected production when trying to figure out how much to offer a player? This is a business but do you offer a face of the franchise and fan favorite like Steven Jackson more than his market value would normally dictate based on his leadership and history or do you make the tough decision to offer him what you believe his play is worth and risk losing him?

    I think that's it for now. I understand if you can't answer these questions, Kevin, for legal reasons.
