Question: Trading JStew / DWill does nothing for cap?

4 posts in this topic

If we trade these guys, does it do anything for the cap at all?

I wish I was a cap guru like it seems so many of you guys are :x

edit: I guess I want to know if a trade brings the contract with them.

A trade takes the contract with them, the money yet to be made. But the guaranteed money that we ALREADY paid them that gets split up over the course of the contract, the remainder would count immediately this year, counting for much more against the cap. So to answer the question, trading them DOES do something to the cap: makes it worse.

Yeah, like JawnyBlaze said. It would accelerate the guaranteed money on our end and result in a loss of cap space for this year. It would be a big hit for trading williams and a gigantic hit for trading stewart (because he just signed his contract and a majority of the guaranteed money is still on it.)

    • This is a hypothetical scenario that maybe should be taken into consideration going into the draft in April.  What part of the team would suffer the most if they lost a key player on the respective side? - If we lose Greg Olsen to injury how much of a drop off is their on offense -If we lose a Safety, DE, or LB how much of a drop off is their on defense -Personally I think the offense would loose basically 1/5 of the production and with no real depth to make an impact.
    • I used to hold out hope, but I think that it's become obvious that the organization really doesn't him like that. He worked very hard to put on a little muscle and refine his game before the past season, but still didn't get any real play, despite those in front of him playing lackluster ball. Throw in the fact that we've added another couple of suspect receivers and are searching for upgrades via the draft, I just don't believe that they believe Byrd is that guy.
