Net savings about $3.5M
I have a question that I can't answer. We are obligated for the $10.5M of signing bonus money we gave Schaub and it shows up in our Dead Money for this season.

Why doesn't Fitzpatricks $1.25M signing bonus with the Raiders show up against their cap instead of ours? They signed him. We didn't. The rest I understand.

Since the $4M guarantee equals his $1.25M signing bonus, his $1.75M salary and $1M Roster Bonus, it could mean we are only obligated to him for one season at $2.75M and the details just haven't been explained. This would give us essentially a free option for Fitzpatrick for $3.25M in 2015.

Something is amiss with including the signing bonus as a Texans obligation.
