It isn't accurate to include money from 2015. More accurately stated it would be if they cut him in 2014 they save $1 mil in cap or if they cut him in 2015 they save $4 mil in cap. Cap space is a yearly rather than aggregate analysis. And new money is irrelevant. Even looking at the two combined the cap savings if released after the 2013 season is $7 mil.
