Yep that leaves 47.7 million for 44 other players lol.
Top 10 cap hits and players in bold obviously no longer on the roster
1. Charles Johnson 16.420 Million
2. Greg Hardy 13.116 Million
3. Jon Beason 8 Million
4. Greg Olsen 7.8 Million
5. Ryan Kalil 7.283 Million
6. Charles Godfrey 7.1 Million
7. Cam Newton 7.008 Million
8. Steve Smith 7 Million(drops to 5 million June 1st but we have another 4 million in dead money coming next year)
9. Deangleo Williams 6 Million
10. Jordan Gross 5.6 Million
lets take a step further and add the other 8 players counting 2 million or more
11. Jonathan Stewart 4.585
12. Thomas Davis 3.516
13. Tolbert 3.5
14. Luke 3.430
15. James Anderson 2.8
16. Byron Bell 2.187
17. Star 2.18
18. Dwan Edwards 2.018
*** Roman Harper is in this equation too, just don't know this years cap hit yet
That's another 24.216 Million
Bringing our total invested to 109.5 million on 14 active players. (4 of those cap hits are from players no longer on the team)
So now that means we have 23.5 Million left for the next 37 Highest contracts on the team (only top 51 count).
The lowest possible cap hit is 420k.
In all dead money hitting the cap this year is just under 25 million now.
Next year we have 4 Million scheduled to hit (From Smith's release).
I don't want to make anybody kill themselves so i'll wait til later to dive into 2015 and will update the op.
Honestly the dead money trend has to stop. Because trust me when I tell you more dead money will happen next year by cutting Stewart and possibly a couple others.
Only 4 players can be cut and save money(1 million or more) against this years cap while not causing future dead money(non june 1st cuts).
Charles Godfrey -2.1 Million
Greg Olsen - 2 Million
Mike Tolbert -1.35 Million
Dwan Edwards - 1.4 million
Of those the only one I could advocate is Godfrey.
