We are higher over the cap than they are. If they can't afford those players how would we?

Even then it will be stretched.

WAAYYYY past time this team planned for longer than the 8-8 season it has coming up next.

Yeah.

So we are $16M over (although another article says $11M)

Gamble Edwards Williams and Nakamura cuts will get us $17M

Gotta sign a backup QB for $1M so we are even after all that.

We can cut Gross for another $6.7...but would need to replace him with a FA so we will keep him

We can restructure Gross and Beason for some amount.

Basically all our free agent money will come from Gross and Beason depending on what we do with them.

If those numbers are right we should have a few million to spend.

Even with Deangelo gone (which i doubt) we still are over the cap.

We will cut multiple players

I agree with what you are saying, but I have 0 faith a ton of that actually happens.

Keep in mind also that Williams release will create a good bit of dead cap as well.

I don't remember a contract as bad as the one that Hurney gave DWill.....ever. Maybe I am mistaken, but I can't recall off the top of my head.

Rumor was it had a great structure when it came out.

Reality is it was total poo.

I heard the rumors, and then looked at the actual contract, his backup, the value of that position, and our cap room already....I am still shamed by friends that are fans of other teams.

We will. But Deangelo may be gone.

Yes. Like $5M because his salary cap hit will be spread out over 2 years instead of 1 if we cut him Jun 1

We have to find the $16M though. Maybe we keep Williams and find the $5M through Beason and Gross. But then there will be no FA signings.

Do you honestly expect any different ?

Not really. I imagine we spend $2M or so on players I have never heard of. A backup QB, a CB and a defensive gap filler. And we keep another $1-2M in case of injuries during the season.
