if 4-5mil is going to be needed for rookies were only going to have 4.5-5mil for free agency which isnt alot but better than nothing
Assuming those numbers, yes. However I think we will save a ton more than 6 million from Gross, Beason and Williams.
Gross is due 11.7 mil this year and 8.7 of it isn't guaranteed. Gettlemen could ask him to take a pay cut or he perhaps he could restructure.by converting some of that base money to a signing bonus like we did with Kalil? He has a few years left imo.
Could CJ do the same? Tons of cap room to move around there.
Beason needs to take a pay cut. 2 years straight on IR and now he's moving to Outside Linebacker.
He's a 9.5 mil cap hit this year and that's just inexcusable.
Deangelo Williams is probably willing to take a pay cut. He realizes he will never get that contract anywhere else and he loves his city and his teammates.He is due 8.2 mil this year and I'd like to see Gettlemen shave off a few mil this year and a few mil next year and cut him after 2014. (when Stewart's contract inflates massively)
If he does his work these guys alone could potentially save us 12 million.
