CJ doesn't seem like the kind of guy that will restructure for the good of the team. I may be way off base but call it a hunch.

If CJ were cut a pass rusher would be the 1st pick of the draft now.

How realistic is it to cut CJ. Thats one of the few contracts I don't blame Hurney for because it looked like he would live up to most of it, but now it looks like he should have gotten at least 20 million less.

I guess it boils down to if the new GM and/or coach (if that happens) thinks we have enough pieces in place along with cap room (once we cut some dead weight) to produce a winner now.... otherwise, they'd want to blow up the biggest cap hits no matter the talent level.

That being said, I'm not sure many of the bottom of he roster (Clausen, Armanti) would be cut until camp. I imagine the new regime would want a peek at them. You're not clearing much, if any, cap room by cutting them beforehand.

Who's safe is a shorter list. Cam Stew Kalil and Amini. Cj, Alexander, and kuechly for the D

Move beason to Saftey or OLB, if he can't do that you got to move him. Kuechly is the MLB from now on.

cap hits if we cut/traded either of these players in the offseason

Charles Johnson, $18 million

Jon Beason, $12 million

Very true, and most people aren't aware of the impact when they say "trade so and so" or "cut so and so".

The only out is we can spread the hit over two years. So, for example, if we look at CJ, we take a $9 million hit next year, but avoid just under $7 million in salary, giving a net negative impact of $2 million. However, we still would need a DE, and those don't come cheap. In CJ's case, we need to get him back on board for at least 1 more year as we clean up some of the dead money.

In Beason's case, again spreading it over 2 years, the net negative impact is less than a million for 2013, and we already have his replacement on the field. He is very, very, vulnerable right now.
