Cut & Restructure Candidates

Tuesday, January 21, 2014


With salary and bonus information gleaned from the NFL Players Association and media reports, I've compiled a list of potential 2014 offseason contract restructures and salary cap casualties. The fact that a player is listed here does not necessarily mean I think they'll be released. It means I believe their 2014 scheduled payments may be deemed by their team to no longer match their on-field value. Ultimately, I'd guess around half of the players here get released outright, and more than half will be approached by their club about an offseason restructure or pay cut.
