They are going to cut salary elsewhere .... they put themselves in this cap hell thinking they had a contender. Now that they realize they don't , they'll shed some salary and reload for another run.
Schaub alone will save you ~11m next year pending they spread that cap hit over two seasons.
When you consider that , it really changes the complexion of the cap situation.
