i was thinking the same. can't think of anybody else who would be worth using the amnesty on, and we could basically release and re-sign to a more cap-friendly deal on the whole, maybe allowing Vinny to get similar dollars when you add up amnesty plus new deal. don't know the inticracies of the amnesty buyout structure, so not sure how practical this is, though
