That's incorrect about Colston and Bunkley. Colston actually costs $1.8 mil against the cap if cut(thus losing cap space). Bunkley saves about $1.2 mil if cut but we then have a huge chunk of dead money.
In theory you only cut a player if they save you at least $2 mil but you also take the dead money number into account.
For a guy like Bunkley a restructure makes way more sense because you can save more on the cap that way than cutting him.
For someone like Sproles he saves more cutting him than restructuring unless he takes a huge pay cut.
I had a thread that basically looked at each guy and the possibility of them staying, getting cut, restructuring, or whether they would be resigned or not. I'll have to look for it.
