Default Re: Would you sign off on keeping Matt Schaub if...

So what's next?

We can cut Schaub sign Vick (or whoever is left)... the $4M you saved for 2014 is gone. You're probably going to get the same net result from the QB position.




I've not once overlooked it & it's always been part of may argument.

Cut him now:
2014: $4M ($3,937,500)
2015: $17M ($13.5M)
2016: $19M ($15.5M)

June 1st:
2014: $10M ($10,937,500)
2015: $10M ($6.5M)
2016: $19M ($15.5M)

Cut 2015:
2014: ($0)
2015: ($6.5M)
2916: ($15.5M)

June 1, 2015:
2014: $0 (or whatever you negotiate through pay cut)
2015: $14M ($10M)
2016: $16M ($12M)

What I think people don't take into account is that the cap goes up in 2015 & 2016... & that the cap went up unexpectedly for 2014 (which might change everything).

Everybody would have been "ecstatic" if we had $27M in cap room this offseason.... well next year we've got that without cutting anyone (of course we still have to fill out 2014's roster to say for sure). & we're already $77M under the 2016 cap. That includes a $17M cap hit for Schaub in 2015 & $19M in 2016.
Corrections in BOLD.
This is just cap savings for Schaub and cap increases have no effect on how Schaub's contract affects the cap.
