Turnerís release saves the team $6.4 million under the salary cap. Abraham saves the $5.75 million and Robinson saves $3.75 million. In all, the team got $15.9 million under the salary cap by releasing the three veterans.

Not directed at you Playoffs , just a general statement:

Thing is , the Texans couldnt cut three contributors and come away with that kind of cap space and improve the team with whats saved. Atlanta likely tries to replace these players thru the draft - The Texans have more holes to fill without creating more.


Can you replace or upgrade any of the following with their cap savings -

Ninja - $6m (I think his guaranteed money is $3m , might be $6m which would mean only $3m in savings) Big chunk of cash there but its a premium position and will likely cost significantly more in FA. Makes more sense to extend him and spread some of that money out rather than cutting him and having dead money.

Walter - $2.4m Walter had a decent season , with Posey gone its much more difficult to part ways with him. A comparable FA is going to be more expensive than that $2.4m savings .... and they will likely draft a WR early as it is. Just doesnt make sense to cut him.

OD - $2.4m Anyone think they are gonna replace OD for $2.4m .... aw hell naw.

Any other players that anyone would like to cut ? Make a list and lets evaluate them one by one on a replacement cost basis.

Wade Smith is another tho I cant recall his cap numbers off the top of my head ....
