I went over to Spotrac and I didnt see in his contract any dead money, so I believe we gain the 700K. I could be wrong though....

You are right, there was no signing bonus, so it's a clean savings of his base salary

wonder if he showed up for offseason workouts yesterday, and if he did, there was some issue that popped up. otherwise, yeah, roster move has to becoming. panthers have plenty of roster space, though.

So current LB's are Beason, Keeks, Davis, Blackburn, Senn, Williams, Hogue?

Blackburn is a more than competent backup, Senn and Williams a short time fill in. Hogue is a guy.

Hmmm.

Not sure if it's to clear 775k in cap space or just to clear dead weight?

Either way, this move makes sense.

Well sorta. Remember, any time you release someone it bumps a low contract player into the top 51 who otherwise wouldn't have counted against the cap. The real savings are probably in the 200-300 range. Anyone we signed would presumably move that person back off the cap to be replaced by their new cap hit.

So it works like this, in theory - Supposing we were at exactly our cap and we released Onatolu providing a true savings of around 300k, but we could still sign someone with exactly the same cap hit as before because it would push the new cap hit back off of our cap total.

Do we lose $775K in cap space or gain? 'Cap hit' could be read either way to me haha
