If anything, we should be hoping for Jones or Brooks to replace Wade Smith, who only had 750k guaranteed in signing bonus to worry about next year. We could save his 3 million in salary.
2013 Myer's cap should be $5.5m & 2014 $7m. If cut, his remaining guarantee is $3.5m + accelerated bonus for 3years would be $6m or a $9.5m cap hit which I agree would be high. So I agree 2014 would be first year to consider.
I have Brooks replacing Smith.
