+ $3 mil from antonio brown = $14 mil which puts us just under the estimated cap. We're clean for the March deadline.

Woodley will be about another 6 million.that should cover restricted tenders.
Other possible clearing
Colon 3 million paycut
Heath 2 million.He will probably miss the first six games
cut Harrison 5.1
contract extensions for Clark and Keisel
Clark add a year convert 3miilion into signing bonus. cap savings 1.5 million
2014 1 million base plus 1.5 signing bonus
Keisel 2 million into signing bonus add a year cap savings 1 million
2014 1 million base plus 1 million signing bonus.

there is 12.6 in savings if we do the the above moves

It had to be done and the cap goes up significantly from what I understand in 2015 so maybe's its just a stop gap. I HOPE! Thanks BB!

Keisel needs to go Harrison needs to go colon needs to go and we all love Troy but if he doesn't take a big pay cut (NO restructure) he also needs to go
