Tagging Shaq would cost about $20 million, and he won’t be happy about it. And you can’t play around and defer any of the money against the cap. So it will make it tougher to sign everybody else. And he will be gone after the season. I think its a bad idea to tag Shaq. You have to let him go out and shop around. If you can match what the other teams are offering, then resign him. Otherwise, you have to let him walk. Licht got Shaq for cheap, and he traded a 3rd rounder for JPP. We’re going to have to rely on Licht once again how to dig up a good pass rusher, but I think that to some extent Shaq has benefitted from the defense that surrounds him, and we shouldn’t overpay and make it tougher to keep the rest of the defense together.
