    Wasn't it Arrington that bought his way out of his contract? I don't think Gibbs released him I think Arrington paid to get out of his deal.

    Well, it still takes to to say good-bye. Yes, Arrington paid back a big part of his signing bonus for his freedom...Gibbs granted him his freedom.

    Yup. Arrington coughed up $4M of his own money and bought out his contract. That's part of the reason he's looking for a big signing bonus.

    I'd give it to him. And then offer him a nice backloaded contract with maybe $12M over the first two years and he'd play here. Right now the Jaguars are ahead in the bidding. I think they're offering like $10M signing bonus and $5M - $6M per year.

    {edit:} On another site (timesfour) a very knowledgeable poster named PackerJoe (who also works for thaPack.com) came up with a very affordable payment plan. Read it here.
