Default Texan free agent projections

Current savings (known):
Eric Winston: $4.5m salary (cap not found)
Mike Brisiel: $1.4m cap
Demeco Ryans:$5.9m cap
Andre Johnson: $4.5m contract adjustment
Jacoby Jones: $2.5m

Total: $18.8 million rounded to $19m

Significant FA signings:

Bradie James $.9million
ALan Ball: undisclosed

I'm projecting both make roster but salary is not accounted for.

Free Agents after 2012 season:current salary, projected and difference

*Conner Barwin: $.9million; $6million = $5million needed
*Matt Schaub : $7million; $12m-$15. = $5-$8m
Duane Brown: $2.7million; $10m-15m= $7- $12m
Rashad Butler: $1.3million; $4m = $2.7m
Shaun Cody: $2 million; $4m= $2m
Antoine Caldwell: $.6m; $2m = $1.4m
* Barwin may be about $2m low & Schaub $2m high so it's a wash.

Total: minimum= $23 million needed
maximum= $31m

Plausible cuts after 2012:
Antonio Smith: $5.5m replacement= Jared Crick
Wade Smith: $2m replacement= Brooks
Shaun Cody: $2m replacement Mitchell/Fangupo
Antoine Caldwell: $.6m replacement=Shelley Smith/Gardner
Rashad Butler: $1.3m replacement= Derek Newton
Chris Myers: $3.5m (2013) replacement= Ben Jones

Highest total: $14.9m

Needed to sign all @ Maximum projection: $31m minus known savings $19m= $12m. Then: Plausible maximum cuts of $15m (rounded)= $16million

Savings of $4 million. (Myers imo should not be cut).

Cushing is not re-signed early and is addressed 2013. However any money saved in first group of FA re-signed should be used to negotiate early with Cush.

It appears you are using averaged over the lifetime of the contract's total value numbers. The numbers in the early years of the contracts will be lower.

FYI - Schaub's cap hit this year is basically $1 mil from original signing bonus, $3.33 mil from option bonus, $7.7 mil in salary and roster bonus this spring = $12.03 mil

Just google Matt Schaub Rotoworld and you will find the contract details.

When he originally signed there was a signing bonus of $7 mil on a potential 7 year contract - prorates to $1 mil per year.

After year 4 he received an option bonus of $10 mil with 3 years remaining - prorates to $3.33 mil per year.

This year he received a $500k roster bonus in March and I assume will receive his $50k workout bonus.

Then base salary of $7.15 mil.

I didn't plan on hounding you about your draft mania.

Uh, that is one of my sources:
3/21/2007: Signed a six-year, $48 million contract. The deal included a $7 million signing bonus and a $10 million option in the fourth season. 2012: $7.15 million (+ $500,000 roster bonus due 3/17 + $50,000 workout bonus), 2013: Free Agent

FYI, my understanding is the $10 million was not prorated but paid and counted against cap year he received it.
