    who do you think the texans NEED to release, either because of their athletic abilities or how much salary cap they are taking up for not doing much on the field???

    no, he's already injured. We'll just carry him out and gently put him on the corner.

    i agree with wade and wong, their contracts are too much for what their projected production might be.

    Wong is coming off injury, won't be starter, Ryans was drafted and they want to see him play.

    Wade, almost a lock to get released.

    Those would be the only significant cuts. Those guys are signed thru 2009, i wonder how much of a cap hit we will take.

    First the cap hit will be huge on both so they won't save any money by cutting them. Wong will be playing in the Middle not on the edge so he doesn't have much effect on Demeco Ryans playing time. I see them keeping Wong around for at least 1 more season and cutting Wade if it came down to one or the other.

    No joke. I would rather have a LB playing CB than Faggins playing anything.

    Wade's dead money hit will be $6.7 which can be spread over '06 and '07. Wong's would be $4.7 which could also be split.

    But, they are already dealing with Marcus Coleman's dead $2.5 on this year's cap, and Gary Walker's $7.3 which will be split between '06 and '07 although at this time the exact amount of the proportion is unknown.

    The point is they can't do a lot of willy nilly cutting of the high dollar guys because of the dead money pileup (thanks to the genius contracts let in the last two years). I think Wade will be cut, but Wong may end up being a PUP when Week 1 rolls around. It will take through '07 to purge most of the bad stuff (Walker and Wade primarily) off the cap. Greenwood and Wong are a tier below those two contracts in terms of cap effect. Weaver is another one to watch going forward. This is nowhere close to "cap hell" if anyone was wondering.

    Isn't Walker's hit in 2007 at 5.5 mil?

    Yes, the salary cap will be a major deciding factor in our cuts unfortunately... doesn't Wade have one of the highest contracts on the team?:brickwall

    That's the maximum it can be if they take the minimum possible hit this year in the split ($1.8). They can take more than the minimum required $1.8 in '06 if they want. The league rules allow that flexibility. It all depends on how they choose do the accounting.

    Yeah, he does have one of the higher salaries on the team. It is pretty pathetic.
