Unless the FO is not planning to resign Boldin (who is a high priority must resign FA), I highly doubt that will be possible unless both are willing to take significantly less to stay.
we're only $5.5 mill under the cap, re-signing any two of Whitner, Brown, and Boldin will require at least a total of $15 mill in cap room because we have to factor in paying our 2014 draft picks as well. Re-signing Dawson also needs to be taken into account, we can't franchise Dawson at the kicker # of roughly $3m cause it would be his 3rd time under the tag, automatically qualifying him to make the equivalent of the QB Franchise tag of $16M. Either way we'll likely sign Dawson for $3M.
So assuming we cut Rogers....I think that saves something like $6 mill give or take $500K. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
Leaving us roughly $12 mill under the cap....Who else gets cut, restructured or extended to create that extra $4 million or so? Having $16M in cap would allow us to sign any of the following combinations
1. Boldin, Brown, Dawson
2. Boldin, Whiter, Dawson
3. Whitner, Brown, Dawson
4. Boldin, Brown, Dawson
Or could we get really lucky and finagle Boldin, Whitner, and Brown under $16M in space and find a way to free up another $3-4 million for draft picks and finally draft a kicker?
