The twitter makes it sound like he's basically "cut" from the team for the rest of the year since it says in present tense, literal translation "is liberated", he's still getting paid and his contract still hits the cap, but will be bought out this summer?
Well... I can't say I'm unhappy!! I like what you have tried to accomplish here, but it just wasn't working.
Who else think he was kind of a Carbo's plan? He openly said in Laraque's UFA year that if he had a player like him that bringed toughness and knew how to play the game, he wouldn't be opposed to playing a tough guy.
Why wasn't he just put on waivers? At least you can hide this years cap hit. Or maybe somebody would have picked him up. Put him on waivers, send him down and tell him he doesn't have to report, but he'll get paid, and then buy out the remainder at the end of the year.
