Not really. If you discovered his replacement (and it's an upgrade) at a price that does not impact the cap at all, then the team can take that cap hit and make the transition without having to alter its cap/personnel plans. Sure it would be better to not have that dead money. However, they planned for 2014 with Schaub's salary on the books. So, it is an easy and clean transition, if it is done.
