Underline: Sharp already had a breakout season last year.
Bold: Yeah, but Gabs is making like 7mil +; again, a lot depends upon other pieces "X + Y" to both make deal cap compliant and make enough incentive to deal. But this aside, Gabs for Sharp gives us cap room, even allowing for the extra we'd have to pay Seabrook, and that's cap $$ to resign our core and think of a down payment on Richards.
