Jonathan Vilma 5,400,000
Scott Shanle 1,750,000
Martez Wilson 509,000
Will Herring 1,300,000
Will Smith 825,000
Sedrick Ellis 5,816,000
Junior Galette 490,000
Cameron Jordan 726,427
Tom Johnson 465,000
Malcolm Jenkins 1,092,000
Jabari Greer 5,400,000
Roman Harper 4,500,000
Patrick Robinson 527,500
Isa Abdul-Quddus 465,000


Total cap space = $29,265,927

Thats an awful lot of dough to spend elsewhere.
Thats the 2012 cap hit if they make the team.

If we cut them, all guaranteed money and signing bonus accellerates to this year...

Harpers cap hit is 4.5 million if he makes the team.
If we cut him, his cap hit is near 17 million.

I'm sure there are several others on that list that would cost more to cut than to keep.

First of all how does Goodell know who put money into the pot? He can't just willy nilly suspend players based on someone elses word. I would think the NFLPA would have something to say about it as would the players to be named would probably file lawsuites. You can't assume guilt based on association or otherwise. There better be some hard evidence of who participated. Unless players confess or someone made recordings of the conversations how does Goodell know who to suspend. Vilma's is the only name I have heard during this whole thing.

If I were a betting man I would say that Vilma is out for the year. Harper may be too - he was already being labeled "dirty".

Look for Jenkins to probably get 8 games.

Doesn't matter if they (Harper/Jenkins) did anything wrong, there are enough "vicious hits" out of our safeties on film (called tackles 5-10 years ago) that we're toast.


I also look for former Saints Hargrove and Bobby McCray to get a dose.

That would only free up cap space if they released all those players. If I am not mistaken, while suspended players might not be getting paid, their would be salary still counts towards the cap.

Also, Jonathan Vilma and maybe Roman Harper are the only players on the team I can see getting a significant suspension. So even if they didn't count toward the cap while suspended, it would only save us money on the games they actually miss. So that number you added up would go way down.

Interesting to think about, though.

Actually releasing all these players and we still have to pay them their guaranteed money. So realeasing Harper would cost us something like 17 million
