----on the low that is 28 million on the high that is 30. Assuming Rogers get 8 a year that leaves us 13 million once we cut spencer.
Brock's and tukuafu's salary will probably be a combined 1M
thats 12 mill left
to devy up between Spillman, Snyder, Costanzo, Gooden, Morgan. They all command nothing more then a measly minimum salary being nice a 1.5 mil per year puts us with an even 6 Mil left.
I' haven't even touched Ginn yet and thats if we want him back or dont have to outbid another team for his services.
Unless I'm missing something we'd easily be able to retain all of them. Finding another "cheap option might save us 3M but I dont see a single free agent OLB that is worth our time besides Brooks or Jarret Johnson.
You know Alex and Rogers have both been vocal about keeping the team together, I'm sure they would each take pay cuts to ensure we field a team capable of playing. Hell I bet any or all of our superstarts: Vernon, Staley, Willis, Justin, or Whitner would do their part to make sure the team can succeed.
Ya. cant forget about the rookies though but since we got the 30th pick their contracts wont be too big
