This chart tells me that cap space means little to nothing in terms of amount of games won and loss.

Was told if Godfrey is a June1 cut we save 5M, can't confirm this nor does it make sense since cutting him in 2015 it only nets us 4M, but if true 5M goes a long way in bringing needed players back.

 

The cap calculator on that same site shows that making Godfrey a June 1st cut would clear 5.1 million in cap space and result in 2 million in dead money this year and 3 million next year. Cutting him prior to June 1st would result in 2.1 million in cap savings and 5 million in dead money, so the only cut that would make any sense for Godfrey is a June 1st cut. 

 

The calculator estimates our cap space at 15 million for this year, while the updated estimate says 13 million. It shows that as things currently are we will have 22 million in cap space next year and making Godfrey a June 1st cut would take that up to 26 million, so if this cap calculator is correct - it's a no brainer.

If he is healthy and we upgrade the offensive line then I fully expect him to be capable of 1,000+ yards rushing. His game against Tampa that so many people pointed to as proof of decline failed to mention the nonexistent holes.

With a few holes a game, Stew can run over around and through people, as well as throw a nasty stiff arm.

 

the guy has glass legs. hes always injured. tired of watching him collect a pay check from the sidelines.
