I think the step that you missed was the 75% of that money. You only get cap relief of 75%, so you have to multiply that number by .75 & then round up. Yeah, we're really close, can easily adjust 2 contracts by 250k in year 1 base salary to make it work.

Yeah. That was it. I'll rework em.

The Oakland Raiders are releasing the following players (If I'm doing this incorrectly, somebody please let me know):

WR Darrius Heyward-Bey

($10,601,000 x 0.75) - $5,260,000 dead money = $2,750,000 cap relief

He is due over $10,000,000 in 2013, and has not lived up to being the 7th overall pick in 2009. After he made significant strides in 2011 with 60+ catches and over 900 yards, he declined significantly in 2012. Heyward-Bey is simply not worth the money he is due this season.

DT Tommy Kelly

($11,099,270 x 0.75) - $6,324,270 dead money = $2,000,000 cap relief

Kelly has had some productive seasons with the Raiders, but he had just one sack in 2012 and is 32 years old. He just isn't worth the salary he is due in 2013.

**By the way, most of the team is available at the right price (draft picks). I need to rebuild this mess Al Davis created, and I don't have a 2nd or 5th pick at the moment.

Trade fodder? LOL I have no clue what you're doing. You have Monroe at LT, and granted you need a RT but you can only start one...so you're signing the two best RTs in the NFL?

Could kick one to guard and just have a stellar line? Not sure if that's what he's planning but it could make sense.

Once Joeckel, Fisher, and Johnson go off the board someone's going to be looking for a tackle and teams are going to wish they were more active in FA.

Unless they have William Beatty at LT and Anthony Castonzo at RT. ;)

I don't believe he ever said he was trying to trigger a move from the Giants or Colts by signing those free agents, though.

No clue what you mean by that. I just find it curious that he'd go sign the two best RT prospects, neither of which has ever shown the ability to play LT effectively.

I think you're way off.... unless my math is incorrect (and I crunch numbers for a living, so I doubt that), 75% of DHB's base salary would give you about $6M in cap relief.

Perhaps I took your comment wrong. When I had said that someone would want to make a move for one of the tackles and you said you wouldn't need to because of Castonzo I said that he might not be trying to get a trade from you. It's definitely been a long day though so I may have just confused myself.

I just got home from work, I've been using the messenger from my phone during breaks, and I also just found this thread and read the rules. Hopefully these will be accepted, I know I can cut up to 2 players so I'm "cutting" players who are no longer on the team and were released by the Jets a couple days ago.

Jason Smith OT and Eric Smith S (keeping Bart Scott and Calvin Pace since I can only cut 2, I guess)

I know I said I was thinking I had to give up my spot because I couldn't be as active, but am hopeful that we can be a little lenient here. Jason Smith's cut alone saves me over $7.5 million, but the max is $7.5 million, so adding that to my $15 million in cap space the Jets now have $22.5 million which is a HUGE difference.

Especially huge because of the 75% max cap signing rule, so I should be able to compete for 1 coveted FA. Appreciate all your leniency and understanding fellow IMD'ers : )

- TDB

P.S. I'll do my best in the next few days to begin making FA offers

A little off on some of the signing bonuses. Everything has to end with 250,000 or 500,000, or 750,000 or 000,000. So the minimum signing bonus is 250,000 per season, so if you had a 2 year deal, min signing bonus is 500,000. A 3 year min signing bonus is 750,000, and so forth. You can always go higher (up to 3 times the year 1 base salary). So if you paid a guy 1,000,000 in year 1 on a 3 year deal, then the max bonus you could offer is 3,000,000 & the min is 750,000 as stated before (although there is no requirement to offer any signing bonus at all).
