I was gonna ask if anyone knows how to do their math around here so if you have the time, how much money would we have if say in a scenario that we: Cut Gamble, Cut Dwill, and trade Beason to a team like Baltimore? or in a better scenario that would help us more.
Could we have enough money that we'd be under the cap and still able to go out and sign guys like Chung and McKelvin for next season?
You can't do much with Beason. Trading him is the same as cutting him and he would cost more to cut than to pay him his salary. We could restructure but that just gives up more dead cap space down the road if he can't play at a high level. Cutting Gross would save 7.7 million or as a June 1st cut it would be 9.7 million with a 2 million dead cap hit in 2014. Cutting D Will only works as a June 1st cut so you would save roughly 3 million in 2013 but have a dead salary cap hit of almost 5 million in 2014. Gamble saves you roughly 7 million if you cut him.
There are other cuts you could make like Ron Edwards, Nakamura, Tolbert, Dwan Edwards and Clausen.
As for signing other guys I have no idea what they would cost.
