Ten NFL teams will gain 2013 cap space on June 2

Here's a list of the ten teams and the amount of cap space they'll gain on Sunday, June 2: Miami Dolphins: $10.4 million — The Dolphins released inside linebackers Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett with "post-June 1" releases and, as a result, will pick up $10.4 million in cap space on June 2. Dansby, who has since signed with his original team, the Arizona Cardinals, was scheduled to earn $6.05 million in base salary, while Burnett, who signed with the Oakland Raiders, was due $4.35 million in salary in 2013. Combined, the two veteran linebackers will earn a maximum of $4.75 million from their new clubs in 2013. The Dolphins had $7.066 million under their adjusted cap number of $128.223 million and have three picks in the first three rounds of the 2013 NFL draft to sign before training camp. Those players are scheduled to count $4,832,672 against the team's 2013 cap. The downside to gaining an additional $10.4 million in cap space on June 2 is that Dansby and Burnett will combine to count $3.575 million in "dead" money against the Dolphins' 2014 salary cap.
