Right now Manningham would cancel Morgan out, and Johsnon would cancel Costanzo out, based on contract and same type of status(WR and Backup). Snyder depended on play might net us a 5th, but likely a 6th or 7th.
Thanks AB... so Johnson was slightly above vet min right? What did Cartwight get 500k?
Cartwright got 1yr 950K, which included league minimum of $925K and a $25K bonus, but he only counts $590K against the cap with the vet minimu credit.
Johnson's reason for counting is a 2yr deal. Anything above minimum or at least 2 years counts, as long as he was a UFA at end of season with a team, and not cut like others. Moss and Cox dont count since they didnt play in 2011. Also when you dont tender a player or rescind a players tender, they also don't count agsinst or for you in the formula.
We signed a few for 1 yr deals in 2011. Braylon, even though he was cut, he spent 16/17 weeks on the roster, Rogers, who got 1yr and 4.25M, then Whitner, Akers and Goodwin all signed 3 yr deals.
We lost LaBoy(2yr), Baas(4 or 5yr), Spikes(3yr), Lawson(1yr 3M) and Franklin(1yr). Had we cut Braylon earlier we would of gotten a 7th for LaBoy signing.
Whitner, Akers and Goodwin would eliminate Baas, Spikes and likely Franklin. then Rogers elminates Franklin, while LaBoy marked out by Braylon.
