Who to cut (cap hits included)

So we're about 14 over and we'll need at least 8 million for Graham, so who do you cut?

I know Loomis will likely restructure several players but this kinda gives yo a good indicator who may be asked to restructure or clean out their locker..

Approximated cap savings if cut (hopefully some restructure)...

Cap hit minus dead money = Cap savings if cut
Will Smith - 13,902,451 - 2,352,451 = 11,550,000
Darren Sproles - 4,250,000 - 750,000 = 3,500,000
Jabari Greer - 5,825,000 – 2,650,000 = 3,175,000
Pierre Thomas – 2,900,000 – 0 = 2,900,000
Lance Moore - 5,068,750 - 2,357,500 = 2,711,250
Roman Harper - 5,870,000 - 3,690,000 = 2,180,000
Mark Ingram - 2,359,875 - 973,500 = 1,386,375
Patrick Robinson - 2,804,333 - 1,446,833 = 1,357,500

I can realistically see Smith, Sproles, Greer, Thomas, Moore, and Harper all gone...

Theres 26 million right there. Plenty of money to sign Graham and numerous others.

We did just fine without Smith and I didn't see the LB experiment working anyway
Keep Sproles and Thomas
Assess Greers injury. His career could possibly be over anyway unfortunately
I like Moore but it may be time to move on.
Harper and Ingram can go. I actually like Harper. Our run D got much better almost instantaneously when he came back from injury. If we can find a FA upgrade that would be great
Krob is the future as our bruiser and short ydg and should replace Ingram.
I would like to see how Prob does under Ryan.

Also would it hurt us to let Jenkins go?

What no Bunkley..... I would bring back Robinson, sproles, Moore.... No reason for the rest.... Love them all but something has got to give for us to get out of NFL debt for once....

Re: Who to cut (cap hits included)

Will Smith - 13,902,451 - 2,352,451 = 11,550,000 GOODBYE
Darren Sproles - 4,250,000 - 750,000 = 3,500,000Thanks for the memories but we got to let you go. Steve has all the information you need.
Jabari Greer - 5,825,000 – 2,650,000 = 3,175,000I don't know what to do with him. I'm leaning towards "Keep"
Pierre Thomas – 2,900,000 – 0 = 2,900,000Thanks PT but I need you to follow Darren
Lance Moore - 5,068,750 - 2,357,500 = 2,711,250Follow PT and Darren
Roman Harper - 5,870,000 - 3,690,000 = 2,180,000I like you Roman. Lets see what camp looks like
Mark Ingram - 2,359,875 - 973,500 = 1,386,375Keep
Patrick Robinson - 2,804,333 - 1,446,833 = 1,357,500Keep

Re: Who to cut (cap hits included)

I could see all but Thomas and Ingram gone and I'd personally drive Will Smith, Harper and Jenkins to the airport
