    Thanks jap for the links. Whatever happens, I hope they sign Fisher and get him going from training camp day 1, so he doesn't miss a beat.

    Did Tyson Jackson restructure his contract? If I remember correctly he was supposed to make a big chunk of money this year.

    Yes he did. He was supposed to make something like 14 mil but restructured to 4.2 mil with a 3 mil bonus.
