Schefter: 2014 cap rising 5% to 130 million (extra 7 million for us to spend)

Recommended Posts

We are not cutting Charles Johnson.

Probably not.


I am just saying that if you are going to let Hardy walk you would save more money signing hardy long term and cutting Johnson as a June 1st cut. He is definitely not worth 16 million but Hardy is worth 10.

CJ is the best DE on the team with or without Hardy. He isn't going anywhere nor should he. I see us playing hardball with Hardy similar to how the Giants did with Umenyiora. I do think Hardy stays but I don't think it will be for the money he wants.

I think he was in the past but not last year. He played against less talented tackles than Hardy and Hardy still played better.


Johnson won't be here past this year unless we extend him.  His dead cap hit this year is the same as his cap hit which is 16 million.  As a June 1st cut it  is 8 million for 2 years so we save 8 million this year and 9 million next.  In 2015 his cap number is 17 million and his dead cap space hit is 6 million.  So by cutting him next year we save 11 million dollars.


Honestly I don't see us letting Hardy go when we know that Johnson will be too expensive to keep in the future unless he has a pro-bowl year and we extend him. Restructuring just guarantees we dump him next year and his dead cap hit increases to 9 or 10 million
