What happens when he's ready to return for training camp? Given his current contract and the fact he will begin his 7th season and only be 29, he still has several years of (potential) productivity depending on his recovery...

 

9/9/2011: Signed a six-year, $28.7 million contract. The deal contains $12.4 million guaranteed, including a $5 million signing bonus. Godfrey is eligible for an annual $100,000 workout bonus in years two through six. Another $600,000 is available through incentives based on Pro Bowl selections.

2013: $1.6 million

2014-2015: $5 million

2016: $5.3 million

2017: Free Agent

 

I won't pretend to know how to figure the cap hit, but what is the opinion of the huddle- will he be here next year?

Cut him. You can get better play for cheaper.

Cap hit is 7.1 million in 2014 and 2015

Restructuring pointlessly overpaid players is a bad habit of ours. We need to cut the fat. Walk away from some of them

I say we should keep him. I read somewhere that said since he has been injured, he goes to practices and film days and helps out when he doesn't have to. He is being a team player. He isn't staying home and playing xbox. He is right there with his team. I like that and I respect it. I say we keep him. Maybe we can renegotiate his contract.

The majority says cut him.

 

Okay, so how do you then justify the $7.1M cap hit this team can ill-afford?

I will be surprised if Charles Godfrey is here next year but one thing is for certain,he'll not be getting the $5 million if he is.

I'd say he's gone. Cutting him saves something like 5.1 million in cap next season.

Plan B if Mitchell does not sign with us. We are deep at DB now and have leverage with Godfrey.

most under-rated player by fans. He is actually a lot better than fans will give him credit for. Most over-rated player- Greg Hardy

Huh?

 

His base salary is 5 million next year with a 1 million signing bonus hit and a 1.1million option bonus hit tagged on. If we cut him, we shed his 5 million base and only his 2 million in signing bonus cap distribution gets accelerated. Meaning we go from a 7.1 cap hit to a 2million cap hit, saving 5.1 million.

Tell Godfrey he can stay and compete at a much lower price..or we can try to trade him to another team that's willing to pay him more.
