By that point in the show, they had gone through all the positions and hadn't mentioned Washburn and the roster spot he will occupy until (I'm guessing) that they are fully convinced that Butler's shoulder checks out okay (and hopefully there's nothing going on with Salaam)... and I thought that was noteworthy and getting lost in the Maddox/Colvin reaction.
Colvin's impact capwise is minimal. He had $1 million of his base guaranteed over for '08 and '09 and that's all that has to be dealt with. He also had a roster bonus in there but I'm guessing that was contingent on him making the team - so that would be a non effect capwise. Since he's a post June 1 cut, I'd assume they can split his dead money over this year and next at $500k per year.
