Big difference in your example is that Thomas was under contract, but suspended for not playing and therefore was not getting paid. He was simply a Cap hit with no $$$ attached.
Someone has to pay Grabs $5.5 mil and Liles almost $4 mil when acquired.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
