The obscenity of Campbell's contract isn't just the amount, it is mostly the length. 6 years is just way too long from this point. He would be here longer than Brown and it would be such a pain to move the contract, which would be inevitable unless we really want to lose some of our primary young talent.

Johnson, Doughty, Simmonds, and Moller are all going to require new contracts and the removal of Zeus isn't going to give us enough room to cover it - you would have to fit all 4 of those within an $8 million cap hit.
Doughty is the only one that is going to be making big bucks. Johnson is a huge question mark. Simmonds and Moller aren't going to break the bank financially.

I'd think that if Lombardi did this, he'd end up moving Johnson to fill another hole.
