Okay, someone will be a June 1st cut

Where is the documentation or link that says that trading a player after June 1st is the same as cutting him.

I looked on several sites and none of them referenced this. I sent an email to "ask the commish" with this question. I did see a jets blog saying they are the same in reference to cutting or trading Revis but nowhere else.

This links suggests that June 1st cuts are different than trades, not the same.

Can you clarify??

It's all in the CBA. Feel free to download and read a PDF of it.

Could be wrong but im pretty sure that there is automatic salary set aside every year for rookies per new cba.....

I'm going to go out on a limb and say DeAngelo. It was obvious last year that he is not an ideal fit for Rivera's philosophy, and such a cut would make the most sense. We simply cannot afford to cut Gross.

We already have a June 1st cut in James Anderson.

I may be wrong but I thought we were allowed 2 June 1st cuts in advance.

It's the same thing, cutting or trading a player. If cut/traded before June 1 the dead money accelerates to this season, if after it applies to next year.

Cutting a player you have the option to designate them a June 1 cut even if you cut them before that date. Trading them there's not that option so if we trade DWill it would actually have to be after June 1st.

This means that in the unlikely event that we find a trade partner we wouldn't gain any draft picks this year but instead they'd be dealing us future picks (which actually makes it more likely that a team will give us something for him).

In a perfect world then Don Gettleman is shopping him for "anything" and come June 2 he is cut or traded. We deal with the cap hit and end up back in the green that much faster.

Why do you guys want to move money to next year. We need to have space next year to go ahead and lock Cam up long term. Why do we want to eat into that cap more then already necessary????

Might be forced to to fill problem area's and sign draft picks.

If DeAngelo Williams is on this roster week 1 AND accounts for the current cap space he does....Gettlemen should be fired. Pay cut, trade, or cut....doesn't matter but it has to be something. But now is not the time for him to talk Williams...he had to say he doesn't a reason why he can't keep him otherwise he loses the little trade position he has.
