Sllim Pickens Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 3 hours ago, Just Want A Title said: Some of the most significant moves are contract re-structures that will create more cap issues in subsequent years. I don't see them competing for a deep playoff run or a division title in the next two years. Using re-structures to create cap-space this year will only push their cap issues into future years. The article mentions it will push some of it to 2024, but also the cap is expected to increase 25M for 2024. As for Evans, he is 29 and still productive. He has a huge cap hit this year but they only save $2M if they cut him with 21M in dead cap. Moving him is not a smart move. Chris Godwin is the same way, he would hurt their cap by 11M if they move him this year. The article shows an easy path of getting under the cap, not totally damaging future years, and staying competitive. Given it would cost them more to tear it down this year, they would be dumb to do so. EWhen teams tear it down, they don't cut or trade all-pro players that would cost them more to ship away. If they are in the same situation next year and didnt have a good season, maybe they move Vea then when he would save them 11.3M and cut Gage who will save them 10M and trade/cut Carlton Davis who would save them 15M. So they have a much easier way to cap freedom next year, especially with Mike Evans contract expiring after this year (unless they extend him).
