    27 million now in cap.

    Restructure 10.5 mil of Cutlers base salary, saves 8.4 mil this yr, increasing cap hit 1.5 mil for duration of contract

    35.4 now in cap

    Tillman (2 yr 6 mil, 2.5 mil cap hit this yr, 2.5 mil guaranteed)
    McCown (2 yr 4 mil, 2 mil cap hit)
    Corey Wootton (3 yr 9 mil, 2.5 cap hit)
    Garza (1 yr 1.2 mil)
    Collins (1 yr 1 mil)

    Mannelly (1 yr 955k)
    Britton (3 yr 3 mil)
    Steltz ( 1 yr 730k)
    Boggs (1 yr 495k)

    At this point we would have 22.5 open.

    Free Agency:
    Michael Johnson (5 yr 45 mil, 8 mil cap hit)
    Linal Joesph (4 yr 21 mil, 4.5 cap hit)
    Antoine Bathea ( 3 yr 10 mil, 3 cap hit)
    Jonathon Dwyer (1 yr 800k)

    Total 16.3 mil, 6.2 mil remaining

    Draft: costs 5.7 mil

    This mock is trying to clone the panthers. With a very solid front 4 we can survive with average d backs. We would also have a very solid rotation on the d line. Although the cap room would be tight at the end we would have just enough to get through and would have briggs coming off the books next year so the slight increase in cutlers salary would be affordable.

    This mock just shows that if we borrow from cutler we can completely turn this defense around. A d line of Wootton, Joesph , Jernigan, johnson could hold down the d for the next few years.
    Round 1: (1) BcEuAbRsS vs (4) AB1984 - AB Wins 14-5

    Just noticed for GatorJimmy's mock that he re-signed Collins and not Ratliff in FA but listed Ratliff at NT on his roster. Not sure if he meant to re-sign Collins or Ratliff. There's no way Archer is lasting to the 6th rd either. Gonna take some time to think about it and let GatorJimmy clarify.

    Ratliff is supposed to be Collins on the depth chart. I also meant to sigh Ratliff but obviously I didn't so his salary isn't included.
    So it'd be
    Nt joesph/ Collins
    3tech Jernigan/paea

    And I originally thought archer may be there. Speed guys like that in such a deep draft can fall. But that was before the strength he showed at the combine.
