We don't have $3.5M to give him. Anyone we sign isn't going to be for much over vet minimum. $1.5M or so tops.

Post June 1st, we'll have enough money to sign anyone we want. Just because a deal averages $3.5 million or $5 million or whatever doesn't mean the first year cap hit is that high.

Don't get too hung up on what the player makes. Joe Flacco's deal pays him a ridiculous amount in guaranteed money over the first 3 years and his cap hit this year is just $6 million and some change.

Wish San Diego or AZ would take Clabo, hoping against hope that one of the 3 OT's fall

Taking Clabo (a RT) would not change us wanting Lane at 11 or Arizona potentially taking him at 7. If we took him, it would mean we'd cut Clary.

Winston Justice with Osi in ATL? We wouldn't have to worry about Cam resigning cause he'd be dead.

Who else do you think we could bring in and immediately pencil in as a starter?

I see the OT situation this way:

1. KC Joeckel

4. Philly Fisher

7. Arizona Johnson

If one gets by Arizona, SD grabs him.

Of course, we can always hope.

If we cut hangman, how much would immediately come off the books?

I think it is around $1.7 million We supposedly have about $5.7 million in cap room, but we have our draft picks to sign too.

I think Garry Williams is over $1 million too.

to answer my own question, according to spotrac, the cap hits are below:

hangartner - $1575000

garry williams - $1258333

i think if we cut hangartner, there is no cap hit. something like $130,000 for williams.

The only plus i see to keeping hangman is that he could play center if needed. The problem is he is even worse at center than he is at guard

So, if we cut them both, come June 1st we would have about $11,000,000 in cap space. $7,000,000 still available after factoring in rookie salaries. Plenty of money to upgrade OG, RT and NT
