Haralson makes too much, if kept we lose $2.77M in cap room, we need room for emergencies, can't go in with 1.7M or less, won't work.
Anyone we sign in an emergency will come at the vet minimum. There is no chance at all that Haralson gets cut at his salary - unless of course the young guys out play him. The latter is very unlikely. Haralson is one of the best run stuffing OLB's in the league.
Not that easy to just keep a player and only have under 1.3M to use. If you end up signing players to league minimum deals, you would sign only 3 guys, at $390K each. The way we are, our front office won't go in risking cap space.
I understand Haralson is a good player, but facts are his salary is TOO high. He isn't a starter, and isn't a special teams player. Guys like Grant and Gooden, who make less combined play Special teams.
Also we are under by 3.7M right now, BUT it is only for top 51 salaries, when season starts the entire team counts(53 man, PS, IR, PUP) meaning less and less cap space.
I've said before, restructuring deals isnt a good idea, just pushes money back, when cap isnt known for 2013 and beyond. The new TV deal may or may not help the cap. If owners get there ways the cap will always be 120M range.
