If they pay Dumervil between $7-8M per year, they should be able to work out the cap space.
Cushing is going to count nearly $5M this year; an extension can't be a whole lot more than that.
Smith counts something like $9.5M this year already.
That cap space can accommodate Dumervil's and at least some of Cushing's raise (maybe all of it) next year.
And then there's the portion that we slotted if we were to resign Barwin.
