"Beason: The logical scenario for him is a contract restructure to knock his cap figure down. Beason currently has a $9.5 million cap figure and $3.75 million of his $5.25 base salary for this year is guaranteed. Beason also has $12 million in outstanding pro-rated money. "
So if theres 12 million in prorated money that will hit the cap and we can spread it out over 2 years by cutting him after june 1st then we could save 3.5 this year against the cap. Then next year it would free up another 3.5 off the cap. Then we would be off the hook for the 11.75 and 9 million he'd count against the cap in 15 and 16 if I understand everything correctly.
Don't forget that $3.75 million left in guaranteed salary, so that would make it only $1.75 million in savings this year if we cut him June 1st cut.
