Chiefs cap room for 2013
 
How much do we have ATM? I know it has been addressed recently in another post nut I can't seem to find it. Lets assume we cut Jackson and Cassel outright.

This is one thing I don't follow and don't really know the process...what counts against the team cap, what doesn't, how cutting a player effects the cap and why teams wait til June etc, the new CBA rules. This would be useful info if anyone can explain.

I know its going to be a big number but I want to know how big. Wonder if Andy Reid will go all out on free agents this year like he did in 2011 in Philly.

Dunno, but if we can get the following it'd sure be nice. Of course this is after we re-sign Albert, Bowe, and Colquitt.

FS-Jarius Byrd (assuming he's not hit w/ the tag)
CB-Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
WR-Greg Jennings
OL-TBN
VetQB-TBN

And one more site... good look at our contracts. Tamba is costing us alot up front, but after next year his salary drops.

Wow. That isn't nearly as much as I thought it would be. 13-14 Mil ATM.

With a cap hit of $9,875,000 in 2013 for our beloved Matt Cassel, gotta think the Walrus is sharpening his axe right now. Then he has Tyson Jackson's $17,245,000 cap hit to address.

We won't cut him until after the league season starts unless they want to eat it all. If they cut him later, they can spread the cap hit over 2 years.

BossChief 01-06-2013 08:49 AM

Cut Cassel and Jackson, give their money to Bowe, Dorsey, Colquit and Albert.

Profit.

CaliforniaChief 01-06-2013 08:51 AM

The crazy thing is that with the new CBA, we're going to be paying a #1 QB 1/3rd of what Cassel made...dramatically improving QB play at 1/3rd the price.

Now THAT's the process.
