    Don't have time for details right now:

    Release Seau: save $2,651,250 in 2005 and $4,848,750 million in 2006 with dead cap in 2005 of $697,500

    Release Thompson: save $1.2 million with 2005 dead cap of $557,500

    Release Fiedler: saves $5,430,417 in 2005 and $8,844,583 million in 2006 with 2005 dead cap of $2,689,176

    Release T. Bowens: saves $180,000 in 2005, $2.91 million in 2006, and $3.16 million in 2007. 2005 dead cap is $2.73 million

    Trade Surtain: saves $5.85 million salary but will count as 2005 dead cap of $2.53 million

    Total 2005 cap savings for the above moves is: $15,311,667 with dead cap of $9,204,176

    Total 2006 cap savings for the above moves is: $16,603,743

    Total 2007 cap savings for the above moves is: $3,160,000

    The above moves get ya to cap compliancy but more moves will be needed to sign FAs. One move is guaranteeing Chambers' $5 million roster which would then be amortized from 2005-2009 at $1 million/season, thus savings $4 million on 2005 cap.

    "Dead cap" or "Dead money" is salary cap space used up on players no longer with the team. Mostly from signing bonus money paid to the player

    The above numbers apply if he retires or is released before June 1st. Numbers will be different if it occurs after June 1st.

    Would we get any good cap relief if we release Mare and Knight too? I'm hoping we have money to spend this offseason!

    Big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games.
