The team is already $6M over the 2020 cap as of right now.

Please, quit with the trade Matt or cut Matt threads. It's not happening until at least 2021. There's no reason to even discuss it.

Yea but but but, we could draft his replacement NOW and trade him in 4 years right?

Definitely silly to cut or trade him.

Definitely not silly to think about it getting close to start moving on.

Sure. I've got no problem with people looking ahead, but every other thread lately has multiple 'trade Matt' fantasies, or 'cut Matt' ideas.

I think a good plan is to seriously look at taking a QB to groom in the 21/22 drafts. I'd lean more toward 22 but that's just me wanting to get the most bang for our buck on a rookie QB contract.

Dude TD just has to go to Edit Player > Contract and lower the signing bonus to 0 and then cut him... It's that easy!

Actually if you play Madden you understand the salary cap pretty well. The trades that happen in real life are often impossible on the game.

I think cutting him you would have the salary cap hit but trading I don't think you would.

Yes, you would. You are on the hook for all his unpaid bonus money.

That isn't how it works in the NFL.

Yep. It's a little more manageable in 2 seasons.

You can trade his dead cap hit 

You can't trade his bonus money hit. You can not. You can't. No.

You can trade guaranteed money that is regular salary.
