Not sure I agree this was a good move but I am not a GM. He was more than solid and he stayed healthy.

Interesting though...

yup, I think we'll add one or two through FA and a late round draft pick.

Beason is coming off another injury and we're holding our breath every time TD make a tackle.

Have no depth behind the starting three. We'd be in trouble if one of them go down.

Davis appears to be recovered, and I for one think Beasons injury's this season were overplayed as an excuse to put him on IR because he wasn't 100% from the Achilles yet.

If you look at the details on his contract from rotoworld or overthecap.com we arent saving that much unless it was done as a june 1st cut.

As a normal cut that does not carry over dead money it saves 200k. If we do it as a June 1st it saves 2.3 million this year and carries over 2.1 million in dead money next year.

Gross may be next if he doesnt restructure

Gross isn't the 4th or 5th best player at his position.

He's a sam linebacker who is okay against the run and a liability against the pass. He's good blitzing around the edge, but we barely ever blitz him.

There are about 100 linebackers in this league that can do his job as well for half the pay.

He would have to be a June 1 cut then.

Would a team be able to contact and negotiate with him now, if he was a June 1 cut?

That was his base salary. Also would have earned 100k as a workout bonus taking his salary to 3 million. Add in the prorated signing bonus of 1.4 million per year and the actual cap hit was 4.4 million.

The cost to cut him was 4.2 million in dead money. We can split it over 2 years or take it all at once.

Would be lying if I said I wouldn't miss the guy. Thanks for everything James. This sucks.

Gross or Williams is next. Something will happen.

Hope Gross restructures.

Is this just me?

$7M bonus means $1.4M a year.

3 years left on the contract:

2013 base salary: $2.9M

That would mean we actually lose $1.5M against 2013 years cap?

Even if the bonus is spread over 4 years it is a $600K loss?

What am I missing?

Yes. June 1 is just a cap move for the cutting team.
