I'm not a math major, but unless they hire some Congressmen to work this budget, I don't think it's going to work out.
ASmith's deal is at the end. They could renegotiate now and save millions, cut him and save $6 million. Or, next year, $9.5 million come off the books. OD, also, can be cut or renegotiated easily next year (2014 is his last). Joseph's is easy to renegotiate after next year as well (in other words, high base salary but very little prorated signing bonus left).
