Extending the QO takes up more cap space than any option except signing him to a contract.
This suggestion is incorrect, wherever you read it from.
There may be some confusion with Bayless' QO, but it would still be wrong in that case - a QO never reduces the cap hold.
I agree about the cap hold and this case the hit is so minute in the grand scheme. This is protecting an asset....there's been interest in Weems from other teams.
