OK, So Who Do You Cut?
 
Ok, so I've seen all your rants about how we have to sign Drew now. Salary cap being what it is, and only $2.3million under, assuming Brees signs the Tag, let's play Mickey Loomis for a day.

Who do you let go to make room?

Remember,
-You have to leave some cap space to fill injury voids.
-You can cut some people, but their salaries may be, at least partially, applied to the cap.
-Vilma's salary space is not a given, as his appeal may be successful, then you're screwed. - Cutting him would trigger salary against the cap.
-You have to have 53 players (CBA)

Good luck.

Love ya Xan, but this roster doesn't look accurate. Start with JV if need be.

If Brees hits pay dirt I see a big revolving door of releasing and re-signing players every week. That is going to be one daunting task. If they create W's with whatever formula they use it's going to be an amazing story.

Harmony will ensue

Justin Drescher.......Drew can long snap.

No brainer.. #58 first and foremost :)

Cut Drew and our cap woes are over.

The Dude 05-29-2012 10:54 PM

Better yet lets cut everyone and fill the roster with UDFA's. the highest paid player will earn 500k per year and then someone will still yell how he is crippling the team.

Scott Shanle and sedrick Ellis can go first, that would free up some space, possibly JV after a while

Cruize 05-30-2012 06:36 AM

D. Thomas, Herring, Shanle, Roby, and W. Smith.
