Pretty much none. All guaranteed money and salary for the year count against the cap, any prorated signing bonuses also count against the cap. The only thing that may be affected are incentive bonuses that don't get earned for obvious reasons.
We lost Mario in Week 5 last year, and of course we didn't get 18 million dollars to play with. Too bad though, would be nice to have the room.
