Who's getting cut and when will they start?

What kind of cap space can be found? Is it all an illusion?

Can we afford to get rid of all or any of the players, the cap villains that have been targeted by us and others for the axe, ie Smith, Harper, Greer, Vilma. Or will the restructuring magic take over and preserve all these players for another year or years? Will we be better off just getting rid of all of them?

Two things will contribute to lots of cuts.

1)New DC, no loyalty to underperforming deadweight players
2)3-4 defense is cheaper since it doesn't pay DL and MLB huge salaries


W.Smith, Vilma are likely severely demoted in salary or outright cut
Its easier or find ILB to play the 3-4. Maybe not Willis or Bowman but guys like Ellerbe or Bruce Carter are mid round picks....


DE Jordan

we wont be better off getting rid of our better players

thats why we have loomis to figure out these cap numbers. we arent the only team in cap trouble this offseason....if i remember correctly the texans have 20 free agents this year....all we have to do is move some decimal points....thats far easier than re-signing half the team
