Re: Texans salary cap 2014
Let's say we cut Schaub, and spread the dead money over 3 years with the June 1st designation; his cap space of 14.5 is replaced by 3.5 in dead money on 2014.
That adds $11M to the $5M plus that we have available.
Without Schaub, and not cutting anybody else, we have 45 active contracts.
A replacement for Ninja should cost between $4-6M.
W. Smith will have to be replaced by either Jones or Quizz.
R. Harris will have to be replaced by either T. Williams or a draft pick.
Even if we resign him, it only cost some .7
Either resign Joe Mays at 1.1 or Sharpton at .7 and replace the other by a draft pick.
Either resign G. jones at $1 or replace him with a minimum guy like Zac Boren or a low draft pick.
Resign Mitchell at 1
Graham will probably take twice the money he's getting now.
They can let the 1.5 on the book or defer some with signing bonus.
Braman and McClain can be resigned for .65
Mitchell will probably take $1M
They can opt to let McClain go and replace him with a low draft pick that plays only in running down, a space eater if you will.
Jean is replaced by either Lemon or Cruse or Bonner.
Guys like Gardner, Mack, Karim, Mohamed and Tarpinian can be resigned for cheap.
