In 2014, we have 38 players signed for $93M. That would leave $30M to fill out the 15 missing players IF there is no cap increase, no other moves, and no re-signing of players, or carry over.
Here's a closer look at players who the team needs to make decisions on in the next 10-11 months, and how the team is prepared:
Carp- Sturgis is here, missed 4 FG's, 3 blocked with one his fault. Looks like a change.
Carroll- May work out but, Davis is there.
Clemons- Solid, with Wilson or maybe Marshall taking his place. May surprise.
Denney- Best LS in the game, with some guy named Scales as a back up play.
Devlin- Worth one more contract. Plilbin likes him.
Cog- Love the player but, Thomas or Samuda will take his place.
Grimes- Hope he does VG but, expect Taylor to replace him.
Jerry- Expect him to play well, and be re-signed.
Jones- Just extend him NOW.
Keller- Jury still out but, like Sims, and maybe Clay, and even Egnew.
Misi- Has been moved and played well. I'm a fan, and want him back.
Soliai- Lot's of money for a guy who plays half the snaps, depends on what Coyle will do.
Starks- Not worth the franchise tag but, a VG part of our D. Toss up on keeping him.
Yeatman- Converting to OT, and has value a blocking TE/OT. A cheap keeper.
This is a something I posted on another thread, which seems to fit here.
