Put it to you this way - if they kept him this year in all likelihood they're cutting him next year and would have a 7M wad of dead money on the books next year. A replacement is not going to be much of a downgrade (and will likely be an upgrade in the run game), so I don't mind getting it out of the way now to protect future seasons - especially considering he wanted out to begin with.This has the smell of Clarko moving on Hodge, Lewis and Mitchell.
I'm bewildered by this move. Chewy knows his stuff and perhaps Hudson was on a down swing of his career but is he any worse/better than his replacement?
Derek's gonna be running for his life.
