I have been messing around with cap calculator on Over The Cap's website and I have come up with the following:

 

Cut/Release:

Charles Godfrey - June 1st cut saves us 5.1 mil

Josh Norman  - saves 570K

 

Resigning:

Graham Gano - 4 years, 10 mil (2 guaranteed)

Mike Mitchell - 4 years, 12 mil (3 guaranteed)

Captain Munnerlyn - 3 years, 7.5 mil (1.5 guaranteed)

Ted Ginn Jr - 2 years, 7 mil (1.5 guaranteed)

Derek Anderson - 1 year, 855K 

Dominek Hixon - 1 year, 1.1 mil (250K guaranteed)

Jordan Gross - 2 years, 4 mil (1.5 guaranteed)

Quintin Mikell - 1 year, 650K (70K guaranteed) basically the same as this year

Chris Scott - 1 year, 495K (ERFA Tender)

Jeff Byers - 1 year, 570K (ERFA Tender)

 

Restructure:

Charles Johnson - 16,420,000 cap hit down to 12,420,000 (net of 4 mil)

Ryan Kalil - 10,400,000 cap hit down to 7,478,759 (net of ~3 mi)

Greg Hardy to the Oakland Raiders for a 2nd round pick

 

****at this point we are sitting at approximately 18 mil in cap space****

Hakeem Nicks, WR - 4 years, 26 mil (4 guaranteed)

Love it!

 

Love the Nicks and Tillman pickups.
Love the Hardy trade.
Love the "David Yankey" pick; "BOLD" pick! (been waiting to see if anyone would bring up his name)
Love the Purifoy and Hurst pickups.

Love the Landry and Reynolds picks, but I dont think they're going to be there.

 

You should really think about cutting Dwill too. It would help save some money.

 

I just dont think Michael Bennett is going to take that 2 mil guaranteed and that contract for Nicks is pretty huge.

 

Great mock.

Pretty nice

 

Only theoretical change i might suggest is to get a WR at the top of the second and go CB at the end of 3, especially since we are primarily zone and don't need to overdraft a press guy.  Now, if we were set at WR, I am good, but alas....

I really have no clue what Bennett's value is but I think we could get him in the ballpark of what is above.

 

Nicks is going to get a decent sized contract. I think around 6 mil per year is likely.

I think that Bennett just earned a long term contract around 6-7mil/yr, and at least 8-12 mil guaranteed after what he did this season.

 

The Nicks deal is realistic. He's going to get at least 6 mil/yr. I just cant see Gman giving that 4 yr deal tho. Probably 1-2yr.

I like Yankey and the FA ideas you have but Bennett and Tillman at those salaries are pushing it.

 

Not a fan of any WR additions here.  Not saying they aren't improvements but that WR unit would be:

 

Smith

Nicks

Ginn

Landry

Hixon

Neutz

 

Not that different than this year.

Oh, it's a big difference.

 

Nicks is an upgrade over any receiver we had this past season, and I think that Landry can have a big impact in the slot.

Would Robert Ayers be a cheaper option at DE?

Yea, but the man is terrible. He's a bust for a reason.

 

I would highly prefer an older Justin Tuck. Still productive but older, and possibly be had at a cheaper price.

 

Other names: Willie Young, Everson Griffen, and Matt Shaughnessy.

I think that Landry has 2nd round talent as a draft prospect. As a player, I think he's going to be better.

 

Do I think that he'll fall into the 3rd? Sure, bc this is a deep draft.

 

But, if he explode at the combine then not a chance.
