2014 cut:
+ $4M on 2014 cap
+ $17M on 2015 cap
+ $19M on 2016 cap
2015 cut:
+ $10M on 2014 cap
+ $10M on 2015 cap
+ $19M on 2016 cap
$7.5M sounds like a big number to carry an extra year, but considering Schaub's scheduled cap hit of $17M... not so much. Making Schaub a June 1st cut helps us get to $30M~$35M much easier in both 2014 & 2015.... & we need to spend about $15M~$25M to field a team in 2014.

Making him a June 1st cut alone raises us from $8M to $18M which puts us in the area we need to be without cutting OD or Manning (& we're already short at TE & Safety).

Yeah I see what you are saying.. looking at it like that it doesn't really matter if schaub is our best chance at winning, thats too big of a number to pay a guy like him for the next couple of years

if we cut him our cap situation doesn't look too bad in the future, we can get a deal done for JJ and build a solid team aroung our QB of the future
