The Lomardi situation wasn't easily predictable, but it has turned into a worst case scenario. We're paying out 3.5m a year for nothing, and get no insurance relief. I assume his insurance situation was a big reason he wasn't given a longer-term deals. For the most financially limited team in the league, it's just another contract that we aren't getting near our money's worth, and it handicaps us for making other moves.
If it came down to it, we could buy him out
