Mickey called to confirm what he should do...
subtract Will Smith- net $3.5mil
subtract Vilma net $1mil
offer Harper $12mil for 3years with token signing bonus rolling bonuses further forward- save a couple a $mil a year
cut him -take a $3.8mil cap hit and move on, only $1.5net added
this year but $6mil added in 2014.
Restructure Jahri Evans, he's hitting almost $10mil a yr in cap for the next 4 years. Roll some forward a year or two and provide a couple of million for this year at least
If you aren't assured Hawthorne is a 3-4 ILB answer cut him. Will cost $6.5mil to save $8mil. $1.5mil net savings isn't worth it if ya think he's possibly legit in a 3-4. Big question to be answered.
Bunkley's role also needs to be defined. It would cost $4mil in cap to cut him. It would save a net $13mil over the next 4 years though (none in '13
). If he is a real NT answer he's keepable even if spendy. As a 3-4DE $22mil worth of cap the next 4 years looks too exorbitant. I suspect he stays
Those will get you close to the projected cap, maybe not even under though. I thought Loomis did great with what he had to work with last year- maybe his best ever. This year will be an even larger challenge though. Certainly the toughest cap situation since '06.
Oh, we need $10-15 million a year for Bushrod or some other LT & a Jimmy Graham extension. Image: http://www.bemanaged.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Help-Button.jpg Image: http://deltagamer.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/man-screaming-290x216.jpg
