Antonio's cap is $9.5. This is the last year of his contract and he could be cut with 6 mil in savings and $3.5 in dead money. Better would be to extend him 2 years with something like:
$1 mil, $3 mil and $4 mil in base salaries with an $8.5 mil signing bonus, i.e. he gets everything promised this year and an extension.
His cap hit would go to $3.83 for a savings of almost 6 mil. Same savings as cutting him and keep the player.

Please see above. You clearly just don't like Smith wanting to cut him in every thread. My proposal makes much more sense for the team.
