I would resign Barwin and Schaub(if he has a good injury free year) and cut Antonio Smith, Wade Smith, and Kevin Walter. I would resign Quinn and not resign McCain(due to financial reasons).

2014 free agents who may need extensions in 2013 include Ben Tate, Brian Cushing, Earl Mitchell, and Daryl Sharpton.
IIRC, my research last week shows Antonio Smith has $4m in bonus coming in 12 & 13 seasons. If cut that would be on this season's cap. That would ultimately save $7.5m if Brooks can replace him. That should get you Shaub and Quin.

Why do we have to cut Antonio what's wrong with restructuring his contract he is the type of player that would

Dopp is talking about cutting these guys next season, not 2012. Antonio's deal has the signing bonus remaining, which is a sunk cost. Salaries are: 2012: $5.5 million, 2013: $6 million. Cutting him next year saves 6 million, which may be enough to re-sign Barwin. If it comes down to Smith vs Barwin, I'm taking Barwin every time.

Walter has no guaranteed money left on his deal (that we know of). Salaries remaining are: 2012: $2 million, 2013-2014: $3.5 million. He will probably be asked to take a paycut next year or hit the road. Cutting him saves 3.5 million in 2013.

Wade Smith has some 750k signing bonus money that will hit the cap each year, but his salaries are no longer guaranteed. Salaries are: 2012: $2 million, 2013: $3 million. Cutting him next year would save 3 million, so he's a target.

Cutting those three guys next offseason will give us 12.5 million to work with, which could be better spent retaining Schaub, Barwin and Quin. That would give us ~26 million to work with alone, and that's a nice chunk of change going into the offseason.

Agree but not sure if we have a replacement for A. Smith. Might need to draft one high if we cut him.

Crick.

Personally, I expect Antonio to restructure and extend but I think Crick is the guy being groomed to replace Antonio if that doesn't work out. Jamison might step up, though.

Jamison is the value-for-the-money option, and he's good enough for Smith to pursue a restructure for Antonio. Too soon to count on Crick. Maybe after a few games into the season.

Maybe so but it's a helluva lot better than drafting the guy's replacement the year you cut him which is what badboy was suggesting.
