We aren't keeping alex at $9.75 Million, not happening, like EezyNiner said we have little cap room, we need to sign draftees, and plus have FAs of our own like Goldson, Sopoaga, Moss, RJF, Delanie, Grant, and Gooden to decide on.
How much would we save on cutting or trading Alex Smith, AB??
Between $8.75 million and the full $9.75 million depending on the trade date, the whole new league year term is the thing I hate, because we dont know it yet. You can't actually trade a player until the new league year begins, once that does, than I expect the team to shop Alex, and a deal needs to happen quick, so we can decide on the free agents, or any incoming guys. We should be seeing an extra $2.5 million from Brooks' clause of not reaching the voids and escalators. Plus some other credits, possibly a $1.25 million credit from Alex not reaching his Likely to be Earned incentives.
Right now I have us, with potential decreases and credits around $6 million under the cap for 2013, that will rise if we finally do a new deal for Justin Smith and Donte Whitner, plus cuts/trades of Alex, Goodwin, Akers and Haralson.
