    Don't you think they discussed this with him? I'm sure they didn't spring this decision on him. "Oh, Kerry, we're putting you on IR, and you won't be getting that entire $4 million you signed for. But keep truckin'." Collins has played a long time in the NFL and made a good living. The money is probably not that big of a deal to him. I'm sure the two sides discussed it, and instead of doing him the injustice of having him backup Painter, they decided this was the best route to take.
    Even if he had Warren Buffett's bank account, $2.7 million is a big deal.

    The point is it is not as big of a deal to him as it might be to younger guys who haven't made as much in the league. I'm sure he's not stoked about losing out on the $2.7 million, who would be?

    Putting him on IR is the classy thing to do.

    It wasn't a particularly classy move, no, but it was the best they could do given the circumstances.


    At any rate I'm glad we now somehow seem to be in agreement.

    Allow me to rephrase: Classiest thing to do, given the circumstances.
