Dolphins Salary Cap: Cap Savings List

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

Earlier today, we took a look at the state of the Miami Dolphins salary cap, following the June 1 Cuts. Here's a look at the roster ordered by the cap savings cutting the player would bring.

The Miami Dolphins have a ton of salary cap space, as we saw earlier today. They have the seventh most cap space in the league right now, and are looking to be able to roll over plenty of money into the 2014 salary cap, if they don't have any major injuries this year.

But, that does not mean there are not players who could still be in danger of being cap casualties. With the calendar passing June 1, any player who is cut now could see some of their dead money rolled into next year, rather than being a major hit just this year.

Here's a look at the 2013 dead money and salary cap hits for all 90 members of the Dolphins' roster.

Obviously, the players near the top of the list have to perform in training camp in order to justify keeping them on the roster. Players like Paul Soliai, Richie Incognito, and Richard Marshall are probably safe, but two players in the top five could be looking for a job at some point this summer. Dimitri Patterson costs Miami nothing to release, and would free up another $4.6 million. Kicker Dan Carpenter, who has a cap number higher than Ryan Tannehill, Mike Pouncey, Brian Hartline, or, most importantly, Caleb Sturgis, is really in trouble this year. Cutting Carpenter in favor of the fifth round draft pick Sturgis, would give the Dolphins $2,258,860 this year (Carpenter's salary cap savings minus Sturgis' cap number).

Who else could be in trouble?
