Noob question!!!

charles355 : 10/26/2020 12:00 pm
can we cut Nate Solder right now?

Would we have a 16M cap penalty ? I guess we would be 992,873 over the cap.

But if it means 0 cap penalty in 2021 I'm all for it!
I don't think

you can cut a player who has opted out of the season, like Solder did, until 2021.

it hurt us on the field at first and now in the cap space department
you can carry over cap space

so there's advantage to doing so.
There is NO reason to cut him right

if you're looking for scapegoats

Soldier shouldn't be at the top of your cut list.

Ooops - forgot about 2022 prorated bonus owed of $4mill, so dead money would be $10.5 mill
what I was hoping for... after the draft was

Solder starting at LT ... Thomas playing a few snaps each week, then full time near the end of the season and cutting Solder next year for 4M cap penalty

but the Covid contract rule is mean
maybe the year off will do him well

If he decides to retire how does that work cap wise?
