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.
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.
