Am I correct that if Culpepper doesn't come back from the knee or gets cut we take a negative 2.9 mil cap hit. I figured the ammoritized bonus (1.4) which is guaranteed times years left on contract(7) (1.4*7=9.8 in dead cap)and subtracted that from their cap hit(6.9)(6.9-9.8=-2.9). Is this correct.
If it is then it would seem we are semi commited to him for the next 2 yrs like it or not. Taking a neg. cap hit then adding the replacments salary just doesn't seem logical for a team as cap strapped as we are.
If these numbers are true I hope it isn't I sign of Signings from Mueller to come. Yeah Saban made the move to get him but I assume Meuller was handling the actual detailed contract info. yeah we got by for a mil last year but now are sitting with a lofty contract and no useful outs. Just seems he could have worked out something closer to Brees's which basically gave NO an easy out option after year 1.
