It's beginning to look like the decision on whether to pick-up the option on Sharp's contract was not made by Vanney. On COG, Kevin Baxter speculated that the decision was made by Beckerman as a cost savings measure. He also stated that he was denied an interview request because "they" didn't want him to ask Vanney about Sharp's comments about being ghosted. Today we learned that Kuntz was responsible for salary cap management before he was promoted and now as GM is certainly in a position to override Vanney. We also know that Kuntz prefers younger players.
