Default Re: Texans cap space

They have 2,130,742 in dead money, but Walter's hit may be a June 1st designation, which would mean it's only 1m counts against the cap this year.

Assuming all that is correct, they should have $10,728,402 available (give a mil if Walter was June 1 cut), before filling the other 4 roster spots, practice squad costs (816k this year), and signing rookies.
Don't forget that the current contracts included the PS players we just signed to future contracts recently. Some of them probably won't make the roster, but at least the money is already there (or a good part of it) for some roster spots.
