Default Bills - (Moulds + Williams) = free agents

http://www.buffalonews.com/editorial...22/1070955.asp

The Buffalo Bills are going to have money to spend on free agents this offseason, but they're eventually going to have to cut some salaries to get it.

The two most obvious casualties are their two most expensive players - receiver Eric Moulds and tackle Mike Williams. Moulds has a cap figure of $10.85 million, and Williams' is $10.81 million.

edited to include last paragraph, very interesting:
In past years, teams could save money by cutting veterans with more than one year left on their contracts after June 1. The amortization of signing bonus money in future years of the contract did not hit the cap until the next year. However, since there has been no extension of the collective bargaining agreement between the players and owners, the 2007 season is scheduled to be an uncapped year. So there is no June 1 rule this offseason. Teams can't soften the blow of cutting players with long-term deals. All of the amortized bonus rolls back and hits the cap this year.

Geez, I need to learn more about the salary cap. Seems to be a huge part of the mind game in todays NFL.

Okay, if there is one FA we need to go after this year it would be Moulds. I could go on for days about the tandem of AJ and Moulds.
