Brown's may tick up slightly, but it's pretty flat throughout the life of the deal. Same with Myers. Schaub's dropped a couple million from 2012 but then rebounds up about 4 mil next year.
Still, Wade Smith's $4 mil will be off the books. Antonio's $9.5 mil will be off the books. Also, Manning and OD will both be in the last year of deals and can be cut to save another $10 million or extended if the team desired to. There's plenty of room for next season. Cushing's 1st year charge under a new deal won't be much different (unless they design it that way) than his charge for 2013. The key is that they have other business to get done and may need to have the option available to franchise Cushing, which requires more cap space.
Here are some other 2014 free agents:
