We are 3 million under the cap which means not much room. We will make several cuts next year. Top salaries as noted above are:
11 Smith, Alex QB 2014 $9,750,000
22 Rogers, Carlos CB 2015 $7,100,000
15 Crabtree, Michael WR 2014 $5,859,000
59 Goodwin, Jonathan C 2013 $5,016,667
82 Manningham, Mario WR 2013 $4,950,000
31 Whitner, Donte SS 2013 $4,833,333
4 Lee, Andy P 2018 $4,050,000
2 Akers, David PK 2013 $3,606,667
98 Haralson, Parys OLB 2013 $2,870,000
Pretty clear Haralson will be cut, My surprise cut/trade may be Lee. Yep pretty much the best punter in the league but 4 million is pretty expensive. I think that Rodgers gets burned an awful lot for the money he makes. Goodwin is pretty expensive. I truely believe that we could cut this entire list and not see much drop in play.the above list is close to 48 million. There will be dead space money involved, but we could be clear cap space for signing key important long term players such as Bowman, A. Davis, and Mikey Iupati.
As far as contract and poor play, I believe it's Rodgers and Whitner. Pretty big money for those two.
