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.
weak link on D is secondary and J Jo is best DB. How do you replace? Easier said than done.
