Let's say for cap purpose only BEFORE signing draft picks we cut the following 6 resulting in a savings of $3.16 million. We have a space of $3. 464 (Weds) + this new savings of $3.16 = $6.624 million. We then sign Bishop for $3m for 2013. (longer contract needed but just to show 2013 cap costs). $6.624 - 3 = $3.624 left for draft guys. Once Bishop signs he is starter on field replacing Sharpton. McGee does not require a player replacement as we go with same QBs as last season. Final three players are replaced with draft picks when signed.

Post #42:
No additional cost as replaced by players already on team.

Sharpton (.5m), Clutts (.5m), McGee (.63m), Mondek (.4m), Rashon Harris (.48m), Gardner (.65m) =$3.16m

Cut Clutts replaced by Greg Jones
McGee replaced by no one as only MS & Yates on final roster.
Mondek replaced by draft pick Q
Harris replaced by draft pick Chris Jones
Gardner replaced by draft pick B. Williams

There is cap money alloted for draft picks & these cuts would allow Bishop to replace Sharpton.
I'll ask this as simply as I can.

We currently have 51 players who's total salary leaves us $3.464 Million under the cap. You've suggested getting rid of 6 players making $3.16M and replacing them with Bishop at an even $3M. This leaves us $3.624M under the cap, but that number only reflects 46 players (51-6+1).

Because the league will now count the next highest 5 paid players (and the minimum salary is $375k), please explain how that $3.624 Million isn't reduced by at least $1.875M ($375k x 5) to $1.794M.
