Re: Texans - 2.4 Million Cap Carryover for 2013

7. Owen Daniels: $2.25 million
Everyone else is 600,00 or is a bigger cap hit than savings. Based on this, I think Smith and Walter are near locks to get cut. That's $5.5 Million the team could use.
Antonio Smith is 6.0 million, but the Texans don't have a replacement for him. I would keep him for now. Andre Johnson is a must keep. Interestingly enough, after 2014, Andre Johnson if cut, actually saves $10.4 mill. If you cut him, that may be the time to do it. Cush is young and only nets 3.1 if cut: gotta keep and resign. Manning is only $2.5. However, if one of the younger safeties can step up next year his cap savings would be $4.5 million...that may be a good time to cut him. Owen Daniels cap savings would only yield $2.5. However, if they cut him next year, it jumps to 4.5. I think he's gone next year.
So in summary, I think Wade Smith and Walters are gone. If the Texans are desperate, they may cut Daniels too.
Good info. As discussed, I see A Smith getting reworked to lower hit. Posey out, who replaces Walter? Any comments about releases AJ will lead to MB exploding but should be looked at IF we can get a replacement. That is the problem. I was hoping that was going to be Jean but...
I want to be able to recognize the difference between a "want" and a "need" and then I want to be satisfied with getting a need
