I took a look at the details. It looks like we save over 4.2 mil this year, then add on 1.4 mil in 2014 and 1.4 mil in 2015.
It LOOKS like we spread some of it around yet still save money overall.
CJ probably wins by ensuring he's here at least one more year. (2014 has him at 16mil cap hit or we release him for a 16mil hit, thus little advantage to releasing him)
With the salary cap rollover that would net us an extra $2.8M in cap room next year. More flexibility to sign, cut, and trade.
