This is why we will be keeping most of that cap space we have. 22 FA's next year that are currently on the 53 man roster.....That's 41% of the roster.

 

On top of this, one man could potentially eat up half that cap space we have, Mr. Kraken.

Norwood is still on the team?

Don't you mean Joe Adams?

We better not pay him that much.

Cut(s): Godfrey, Dwill or Stewart

 

Resign(s): Mitchell, Mikell, Ginn, and Wharton

Does anybody know how much cutting Godfrey, DWill, and/or Stewart would clear in cap space?

Does anybody know how much cutting Godfrey, DWill, and/or Stewart would clear in cap space?

Yup. Cutting Stewart would accelerate 19 mil in dead money. His cap hit is only 6 mil.
Cutting Williams would accelerate 9.6 mil in dead money. His cap hit is also 6 mil. Godfrey would have 2 mil in dead money, his cap hit is 7.1 mil which saves us 5.1 mil.

To sum it up, Stewart will absolutely, positively not be cut. No way around it.
Williams is very, very unlikely. Even as a June 1st cut we'd only be saving 1.3 mil AND we carry over 4.7 mil in dead money towards 2015. Saving just over a million for Williams isn't worth it an likely won't be done.
Godfrey is most likely a cap casualty. No chance in hell he gets that 7.1 mil. He will either take a significant pay cut, or he will simply be replaced by the addition of our newer safeties who have performed quite well. I would say he's gone.

Stewart will stay for 1 more year. Anderson, Lafell, Scott, Wharton, Bell, Fua, Williams (LB), Florence, Dockery, Thomas, Mikell will all likely go. 

We should definitely try to keep Mikell and Mitchell considering how shoddy safeties are in the NFL these days.

Keep Captain too, dude is a workhorse.

I think we will keep Williams over Wharton, he's just as good now but with loads more upside. Plus he's cheaper. Munnerlyn may well also stay but I think Mikell will go as we are now fairly loaded at S. Lafell will probably be traded for picks and Hardy should be resigned. Clausen will likely also get cut.

Updated.

If Mikell is willing to stay for the right price id like to see him resigned for atleast one more year to help out Lester.

I really like our safeties this year. Mitchell on one side and Mikell and Lester rotating in and out on the other.

I don't feel safe with Byers roaming the sidelines while Cam warms up anymore. For that reason alone he needs to be cut.

Can't see Byron Bell getting cut. At worst we have him peanuts and he is a backup tackle. I hope that Lafell gets a better deal somewhere and he is gone...I like him, but he literally disappears sometimes, you can't have that today in the flag football league that is the NFL.

Agree!

I actually think there is a good chance Bell is gone.

 

We shouldn't pay more than 1 mil a year for him and he's most likely going to be a backup next year.

 

There will be some desperate team that will offer him a little more as a starter.

I frankly hope he and Scott are gone.  I also hope Kugbilla turns into something decent.

 

I'm also tired of using that word.  I don't want to hope anymore.  I want to see the damn oline become as feared as our dline, and when that happens, Jesus, are we going to be feared.

wouldn't call Byron Bell definitely cut. He is certainly in the who knows

Godfreys money will sign Mitchell and Ginn n maybe a Gano...all better than Godfrey.

so is it actually possible to sign the Kraken and Hakeem Nicks this offseason???

Depends in how much cap hell you want to continue dealing wiht.

how bad would it be. cause i really feel this who throw us into being consistent contenders. getting Nicks would also allow us to go Hog Mollie in the first 2 rounds or even elite CB instead of having to use it on a #1 WR. i think this could be our best scenerio

I think we go heavy on the O-line during the draft and try to sign a big WR in FA.  I'd love Eric Decker.

I wonder how much Ginn is going to want. He'd be worth a lot more if he could come down with those deep bombs he always burns his man on he is still great for us though.
