Yup. Cutting Stewart would accelerate 19 mil in dead money. His cap hit is only 6 mil.

Cutting Williams would accelerate 9.6 mil in dead money. His cap hit is also 6 mil. Godfrey would have 2 mil in dead money, his cap hit is 7.1 mil which saves us 5.1 mil.

To sum it up, Stewart will absolutely, positively not be cut. No way around it.

Williams is very, very unlikely. Even as a June 1st cut we'd only be saving 1.3 mil AND we carry over 4.7 mil in dead money towards 2015. Saving just over a million for Williams isn't worth it an likely won't be done.

Godfrey is most likely a cap casualty. No chance in hell he gets that 7.1 mil. He will either take a significant pay cut, or he will simply be replaced by the addition of our newer safeties who have performed quite well. I would say he's gone.

Godfreys money will sign Mitchell and Ginn n maybe a Gano...all better than Godfrey.

how bad would it be. cause i really feel this who throw us into being consistent contenders. getting Nicks would also allow us to go Hog Mollie in the first 2 rounds or even elite CB instead of having to use it on a #1 WR. i think this could be our best scenerio

I think we go heavy on the O-line during the draft and try to sign a big WR in FA.  I'd love Eric Decker.

I wonder how much Ginn is going to want. He'd be worth a lot more if he could come down with those deep bombs he always burns his man on he is still great for us though.

If that cap calculator thing is correct, we should be 24+ million dollars under the cap next year. (After a few cuts)  That's not a lot of money to bring in top money free agents.  Considering we have some guys to resign of our own, that will leave us with less money to spend.  I love Greg Hardy, Mike Mitchell, and even Ted Ginn.  However, the one thing we shouldn't do is overpay any of them.  If they are looking for top dollar type contracts, then we should definitely let them walk.

Nicks and Hardy are both going to demand large contracts and I don't think we can afford both.  Hicks is good, Hardy is elite. We can probably get somebody as good as or better than Hicks in the first or second round - Hardy we cannot replace with a draft pick. I think the choice is obvious. Hardy is going to demand $8-10 million a year and he is worth it.

Need to get rid of Anderson and draft or pick up a FA dual threat QB.   Braxton Miller (draft) or Connor Shaw (FA) would be my top picks.

I would not take Nicks over the possible cost of losing Hardy or Mitchell.  I would rather keep them and draft Benjamin or Robinson or whomever in the 1st or 2nd.
