Green Acres School in North Bethesda, Md., has outlawed Washington Redskins apparel, claiming “we cannot continue to allow children or staff members — however well intentioned — to wear clothing that disparages a race of people,” Bethesda Magazine reports.
While never a Pro Bowler, the former USC Trojan played in at least 12 games in each of his eight seasons with the Bengals and averaged 44 tackles a year. He has seven career interceptions and four sacks.
He would still be with Cincinnati had it not been for the cap hit his team would have had to take with him on the roster. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was complimentary of the 30-year-old linebacker on his way out.
“Rey has been a tough and productive player for us, and a fine teammate, and this is a difficult decision,” Lewis said. “It’s one of several we have made to transition to a younger group at linebacker as we continue to shape our 2017 roster. We wish Rey and his family the very best.”
The reason Gilbert lands on this list is primarily because the Steelers have designated Gilbert as the go-to guy for cap space. Gilbert’s contract contains nearly $15.5 million in signing bonus money, tops among right tackles. That makes him very expensive on the cap compared to others as he gets deeper into his contract.
The Jaguars are a depot of bad contracts, but none of their deals are worse than the $32 million they gave Ivory. Ivory traditionally has had problems staying healthy and even at his peak with the Jets was never a top running back. The Jaguars saw fit to make him the sixth highest-paid player at the position, and he flopped as bad as any free agent signing of 2016, missing multiple games and looking broken down when he played.
