why we no resign applewhite?

There is still time but my guess is they feel with hardy, cj, alexander and keiser we have enough pass rushers. Thats 4 de we will only carry one more into the season so most likely they are saving the last spot for a rookie ala what we did with keiser and alexander the past two years.

Players restructured

Greg Olsen-Shuffled money around and saved 2.4 million for this year's cap but added to later years

Ryan Kalil -Shuffled money around and saved 3.45 million for this year cap but added to later years

Jordan Gross- Saved 6.8 million for this year for this years cap and add's 3.6 in future dead money

Haruki Nakumara- Saved 500k for this year

Jonathan Stewart-minor move that raised cap figure $200k, unsure of why we did this.

total net savings for 2013 cap from ^^ = 9.75 million

Players Cut

James Anderson(June 1st designation)-Signed With Bears saves 2.8 Million in cap space

Chris Gamble- Retired wealthy on his 30th B-day.- Saved 7.9 Million in cap space

Ron Edwards - Saved 2.5 million.

total savings for 2013 cap from ^^ = 13.2 million

combining the restructure savings and the outright cuts = 22.7 million in total savings for 2013 Cap

Dead money committed to 2014 cap from these moves = 5.4 million...this does not include increased future cap figures for Kalil and Olsen from their restructures..didn't feel like looking up the specific's on them.

2013 Signings and cap hits *all 1 years unless otherwise noted

Captain $1.1 million (including $300k signing bonus)

Derek Anderson $850k

Tedd Ginn Jr. $750k

Mike Mitchell $725k

D.J Moore $715k

Drayton Florence $620k

Ben Hartstock $620k

Colin Cole $555k

Richie Brockel $555k

Dwan Edwards TBD- 2 year deal

Chase Blackburn TBD- 2 year deal

Free agents not resigned

Gary Barnidge -Signed with Browns

Louis Murphy-Signed with Giants

Jason Phillips- Signed with Eagles

Sherrod Martin

Antwan Applewhite

Mike Pollack

Nate Ness

Andre Neblett


Exercised option on Tolbert to remain with team thru 2015.

Estimated current cap room=7.636 million.*not including Edwards and Blackburn signings.

(PFT said we had $936,00 before the Gross Savings of 6.8 million and accounting for the Dwan Edwards and Chase Blackburn signings)

Cap room will also jump 2.8 million after June 1st once James Anderson cut hits the books.

Lastly the Rookie pool for our 13 Rookie class is expected to cost us around 4 million.

Nice job man. good stuff.

So how much do you think the Blackburn + Dwan contracts will cost this year? Let's say they cost a bit more than 3 mil this year, we will only have 2 point something million left. Now I expect D'Will to take a pay cut unless he wants to be released (it's still a decent option). It's not like other teams will be willing to pay him that much either.

In Apr 13 2012 Blackburn Signed a 1 year $825k contract with New York (NYG)...

And im guessing Dwan will make around 2 mil a year

    • Another thing that jumped out to me that I didn't expect was that Philly Brown seemed to get a lot more playing time than I remembered.    I like Philly a lot, but it's not surprising we didn't re-sign him. He didn't do much with the playing time we gave him. 
    • Ok guys, I am trying to take a look at the roster.  Let me know if I missed any players, have any of the positions wrong, or you think any players need to be moved for the current depth chart.
