This is it.
What I believe is that since Rex has 2 years left on his deal, Woody would prefer not to eat 100% of that salary. Any new GM coming here knows that next year we are restricted due to the salary cap but will have a tremendous opportunity after next season.
So Rex goes into next season knowing that he cannot win with the roster we'll have and knowing he will be fired. So trying to preserve his "brand" may into e him to work something out as far as a compromise with Woody.
Of course, one of two things HAS to happen in order to initiate it. He or his agent have to find him another job as a DC or on TV.
