If we cut Sanchez, we still have to pay him about 4M which would affect our cap. If we keep him, he's owed 8.25M in base salary but he has bonuses due which would increase his overall cap value to 12.853M. I'm not sure what the number would be if we trade him though.
I don't think your numbers are right. What's your source?
