Also we have some cap money from this year that will move to next year. I think it was around 6 million.

Cutting Gamble sucks, but the rest we can deal with I think.

It'll actually end up being lower then 136, more likely around 132. Restructure Beason and Gross - Will save around 7-9 Million combined. Cut Gamble, Nak and Edwards and that saves the team another 12 million and puts the team under the cap.


cut someone who's performed as one of the best corners in the league the last two years

the ideal scenario

Never said it was, but he's almost guaranteed to be a cap casualty because of the Mess the team is in. No one else gives even close to that kind of cap relief (Almost 8 million) by restructuring or cutting them. The team could restructure him, but it would cut the savings drastically.

DeAngelo saves the team around 3.4 and that's if it's split over two seasons. Smith, Stewart, Anderson and Godfrey are untouchable cut wise. That pretty much leaves.

Gamble, Gross, Nak, Edwards, Williams and Beason.

Williams and Beason are the harder of those deals being a straight cut. Beason gets a restructure and Williams probably stays for one more year. That leaves Gamble, Gross, Nak and Edwards. The team isn't going to cut it's only starting caliber LT, so Gross is out- so restructure him to save money.

Nak and Edwards are gone and it saves the team 4.3, The team still needs to cut a lot of space after that. So there goes Gamble....

I understand that cutting Gamble saves us the most, but what FA are you going to sign who is as good at their respective postion as Gamble is at his? He's easily a top 10 NFL corner on a team with no other top individual talent in the secondary.

Figures our star QB would go "uninjured" for the first 2 seasons with DA waiting on the sidelines. Now DA is gone and Cam's gonna get hurt and we'll be right back in Jimmuh's hands...

The team is left in a bind, they'll have to rely on what they have, can get in the draft or a cheap FA.

Even if the team Cuts Nak, Edwards and Williams, then Restructures Beason and Gross. 7.7 of 13 million in Nak, Edwards and Williams, the team would have to save around 15 Million on the Gross and Beason restructures and that's highly unlikely.


Even if the team saves, what I proposed on the high end of 7-9 million. That puts them under the cap by only around 2-4 million. The team would still have major holes and not enough money to sign at least some low level FA's.

Gamble is almost assuredly gone, its possible that the team restructures him, but that would put them into the same situation in 3 years.
