You don't need know math to understand this, simple arithmetic will suffice.

I know it looks bleak. But the fact is that we're among the most talented teams in the league. That's what our salary cap situation reflects, not the gross mismanagement you're suggesting.

Whitney & Reed
still playing on their rookie contracts, maybe underperforming a bit, but Whitney is on pace for a double sack year.
Antonio & Wade are underperforming.
If it were me & I wanted to lower their cap hits I'd have extended them bringing their 2013 cap hits down, but that would cut into the $8M you're already saying is too low.
Garrett Graham
Is the only one on that list of FAs that needs to be resigned.
As it stands we'll be needing a NT, DE, ILB, Safety (if you cut Reed, adding $4M to your $8M figure), OT, OG, RB, QB

If we cut Jjo that would save us another $12M

Cut Jjo $12M
Cut Reed $4M
Currently under the cap $8M


$24M under the cap. & that's without pushing any money into the future.
