Actually when you remove $4.5 mil of dead weight and recover that amount with no cap consequences due to compliance buyout, it actually makes it more likely we're bringing in an expensive contract.

You free up cap space because you need it, not when you don't.

Who really knows who that might be, but that $4.5 mil might be earmarked for Clarkson or Weiss, or whomever else might be available to reinvest in.
