    I'm sure the brain trust is expecting to sign 3 free agents for the 2.75 million they saved.

    Not sure who was the bigger waste of space, him or Thornton. Conversely, everything Philly touches turns to gold.

    Thornton's contract was much bigger and Mayowa led the team in sacks in 2016, not that 6 sacks is impressive but he was still a pretty solid contributor. Thornton was definitely the bigger disappointment, especially given the expectations.

    Wondering if this is part of future cuts to sign current players, or maybe we're going to sign a decent FA ?

    Yes, his name is Demarcus Lawrence.

    Thornton was a bigger whiff but the better player before being signed and the better bet IMO.

    Mayowa was a shot in the dark that I never understood. Never seemed to be what we needed. He was an attempt to find a diamond in the rough but it was always quite obvious that he was mostly a fringe player.

    Yep, it's why a long term deal would be nice.
