Here is my recommendation for this off-season

CUTS: TOTAL (11,009,148.00)

By cutting all these players the cap will increase by over ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS, basically there are two starting players that can be signed to a good deal with players that are not with the team or that their production is less than what they earn.

SIGN: TOTAL ($30,250,000.00 2014 Salary Cap)

  • DB Brent Grimes: ($25,000,000.00 4 Years - $6.25 Million)
  • T Branden Albert: ($35,000,000.00 5 Years - $7 Million)
  • C Alex Mack: ($36,000,000.00 5 Years - $7 Million)
  • DT Jason Hatcher: ($15,000,000.00 3 Years - $5 Million)
  • DT Paul Soliai: ($15,000,000.00 3 Years - $5 Million)

SALARY SPACE ($30,000,000.00) + SALARY CAP SAVED BY CUTS ($11,009,148.00) - NEW SIGNINGS ($30,250,000.00) = $10,759,148.00 (Approx)

  • Cameron Wake is a good player but it will allow the new staff organization to have an extra pick in this new years draft in which there are possible trading partners (Philladelphia #22 and #86 or Cincinnati Numbers #24 and # 88
