Seems so.

But have heard that some Giants fans think he may want out.

So not killing the thread like some think Giants fans do, just providing info.

It’s a weird situation for you guys. A mil is a lot to clear but the problem is who to do it with. You could go a Shiel but can you replace him? Or you could unload, say, Scully and a Kennedy type and lose far less in quality.

I feel that although he is valuable, Scully is replaceable for you. Kelly has been mentioned but I would just as likely say Whitfield once he is freed off a HBF.

If, and it's a big if, that number is correct.

We have a few old times that could clear the decks that are on ok money.

Yeah but to clear them you need to dump it on another team. No one is picking up a Griffen or a Lids.

Fairly certain all 3 have performance parts to their contracts.
Shaw is expected to get a new contract next year but that can change.

Our guys take it in turns to do "Monday Morning
Lets just say, for discussion purposes, you do have a salary cap issue ...and have to choose between Skully & Shiel
I dont accept the premise but they're not comparable.
Shiel is very much a hybrid mid, this year playing mostly outside, a handball iff the contest. Very useful in and under to win clearances if necessary, or as a variation. In previous years Shiel has been on a par with Ward and Coniglio in winning clearances.
Scully is an outside player who has a rare ability to run hard and fast all game. Without him Kelly has been filling in as a winger but that doesn't fully utilise his skillset.
Cant see us losing either.
