Default Re: Texans' Cap space......and the rest of the League

Therefore a June 1 cut would provide $9.125 million in additional cap $$$. Add that to the $8.628 available cap $$$ = $17.753 million $$$.

The Texans will have to allocate approx $5 million for IR replacements, LTBE's and Practice Squad. They will also need approx $2 million to complete the 53 man roster in September. That will leave approx $10 million to spend.

CAUTION: WORD OF WARNING - The more money you move to 2015 & beyond through June 1 cuts and restructured contracts makes it much more difficult to re-sign J.J. Watt.

That's why I suggest the Texans cut Schaub and trade Foster (if they can) and allocate all dead money to 2014 year. That would give the Texans almost $60 million in cap space in 2015 and more than enough $$$ to re-sign Watt.

FYI - You also need to take into account that draft pick 1.1 will count roughly $5 million against the Texans salary cap come September.
So... you're saying yes? No? Close?

We cut Schaub, designated as a June 1st cut (+ $9.1M), cut McCain (+ $0.8M), cut Newton (+ $1.4M), cut Chad Spanning, Keith Browner, Toben Opurum ($1.2M)

+12.5M
