His roster bonus in '13 &'14 should not be counted against cap imo as not guaranteed or upfront bonus. I don't think it would be dead money as he had to make roster to receive.
BB, it reads "First year roster bonus $5M".
It looks to me he already got that $5M in his pocket; therefore, there will be $2M in dead money if Walter is cut.
