2024 CAP Savings Info

Ok so, I put together a total CAP savings file which is based on pre-free agency numbers only. The whole idea for doing this is to look for ways to maximize our ability to be players from the beginning of free agency so nothing here pertains to post 6/1 transactions. It includes cuts, trades and possible savings from restructures and extensions.

I included everyone with savings of at least 1M (I grouped the barely over 1M rather than separately listing them) and no numbers or individuals represent my thinking we should cut or trade. I also did not include numbers where dead money was more than savings. This list simply gives the numbers and ability to run different scenarios in our heads as we begin to play the off-season GM.

With all the talk of trading for a QB and possibly including a player in the deal, no one should be off limits as possible trade compensation. This is just a complete list of all possible savings for the team. All numbers are taken from Over the CAP. I hope this copied over easy to read.
