Unless I'm neglecting some other information, here's the breakdown of Jonathon's cap/dead money situation.
If he was a June 1st cut next year, it spreads his dead money cap hit over 2 seasons.
In 2015 we would save 1.5 mil
In 2016 we would save 2.75 mil
In 2017 we would save 5.5 mil Total savings = 9.75 mil
If we keep him in 2015 and cut him outright in 2016.....
In 2016 we would save 2.25 mil
In 2017 we would save 5.5 mil Total savings =7.75 mil
If we keep him in 2015 and designate him as a June 1st cut in 2016.....
In 2016 we would save 5.9 mil
In 2017 we would save 4.6 mil Total savings =10.5 mil
Basically it looks like it boils down to paying 2 mil to keep him next year. If he looks anything like his old self, I don't see us letting him go. If this year looks like the last two years, he could be gone. Gettlemen will have a decision to make based off his 2014 performance.
