No.

There are two different $10 mils getting confused here and one is a $10.5 mil.

There is $10.5 for money which has already been paid to Schaub which has not yet appeared on the cap. It must appear at some point. So if he is cut (non-June 1st) it will appear on the 2014 cap as $10.5 dead money.

If he stays, he is owed payment of $10 mil for this year which he hasn't been paid yet, but only one third of the dead money would go on the cap this year - $3.5 mil.

Well I would assume if the Texans choose to keep him they do not agree with your assumption and believe he would be a good mentor and would help a rookie pick up the new pro system faster.

it would be as a very expensive late season backup.
I think it would be more early season starter so they do not feel forced to start a rookie just like the deals the Jags just made with Henne and the Vikings with Cassel.
