Report: Bucs, Browns talked to Rams about trading for Robert Quinn
The Buccaneers and the Browns both tried to broker a trade for pass-rusher Robert Quinn before the Rams sent him to Miami, ESPN reports.
Instead of vesting immediately, the injury guarantee vests in the middle of March, and the salary then becomes fully guaranteed on April 1. However, any injury guarantee vesting in the middle of March and converting to a full guarantee on April 1 is meaningless; from the middle of March until April 1, there’s no football game or practice or offseason workout session that could result in an injury to Sherman.
That’s where the 49ers hoodwinked Sherman. Instead of simply saying, Your salary for 2019 will be fully guaranteed on April 1 if you make it to the Pro Bowl (which may have prompted Sherman to ask for the injury guarantee to vest in December), they inserted a hollow injury guarantee that becomes triggered at a time when there’s no way to suffer a football-related injury, leaving him unprotected for the balance of the 2018 regular season and postseason.

Bryant’s production has declined in recent years, with him catching 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season. Since he is owed $12.5 million for 2018 and represents a $16.5 million hit against the salary cap, team brass recognizes a decision on Bryant needs to be made sooner rather than later.

At the same time, we all know this is a business where everybody has to be accountable. Certainly everybody knows that. That’s a tough one. Certainly we’re going to be grinding it out and trying to determine what is in the best interest of our business.
