    Salary cap ramifications of cutting players

    Been doing some calculations. This is using the numbers available to the public, Im sure some are in reality quite a bit different, but here goes.

    Im going to start with the higher value contracts, that means nobody who makes less than 5 mil a season.

    Remember dead money is money that counts against the cap and is not available to be used. Also remember players in their last year can not be restructured. You can ask them to take a pay cut.

    Players whose contracts expire at the end of 2013.

    Tuck
    Keeping next season = $5.8 mil cap hit
    Releasing before next season = savings of 4 mil
    Dead money = $1.8 mil

    Diehl
    Keeping next season = $7.825
    Releasing before next season = savings of 4.825 mil
    Dead money = $3 mil

    Boley
    Keeping next season = $5.9
    Releasing before next season = savings of 4.5 mil
    Dead money = $1.4 mil

    Webster
    Keeping next season = $11.475
    Releasing before next season = savings of 9.975
    Dead money = $2.375

    Contracts expire end of 2014.

    Bradshaw
    keeping this season = $5 mil
    keeping next season = $5.25 mil
    releasing before this season = savings of 1.25 (no cap hit after 2013, so would save full 5.25 in 2014)
    releasing after next season = savings of 4 mil
    dead space releasing before this season = 2.5 mil
    dead space releasing after next season = 1.25

    Rolle
    keeping this season = $10 mil
    keeping next season = $10 mil
    releasing before this season = savings of 1 mil (no cap hit after 2013, so would save full $10 mil in 2014)
    releasing after next season = savings of 4 mil
    dead space releasing before this season = 6 mil
    dead space releasing after next season = 3 mil

    Snee
    keeping this season = $7.95 mil
    keeping next season = $8.95 mil
    releasing before this season = savings of 3.45 (no cap hit after 2013, so would save full 8.95 mil in 2014)
    releasing after next season = savings of 6.7
    dead space releasing before this season = 4.5
    dead space releasing after next season = 2.25

    If there are any other players you want me to go through let me know. Hopefully this gives some idea.

    Webster and Rolle are the two I am not that sure about, they both supposedly restructured last season.

    I have to double check the math on them

    Carr is a free agent this season, not under contract in 2013.

    Releasing this season = Savings of 4.2 mil
    Releasing after next season = Savings of 6.4 mil
    Dead money releasing this season = 4 mil
    Dead money releasing after next season = 2 mil

    Thanks Slip for the useful information.
    Everyone you listed needs to be either restructured or released with the possible exception of Baas this year (no savings).
    So there really is alot of room for us inside the cap.
    JR has the easiest job in the world, lol.
    All kidding aside, those contracts do provide us a good opportunity to free up some space to make moves on the OL, DL and LB.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Carr is a FA and was on a vet min contract. I think he might have gotten a very small signing bonus, though.
