    salary cap question

    So i have a few scrubs (ok more then a few, the dolphins are very underrated)

    so if I release say tyler thigpen, he is "worth" 3 points, but is in the last year of his deal, so if I release him I would still pay 1.5 for the rest of the year?

    so in reality, no real benefit in releasing players?

    Thigpens salary is actually 4 dollars so you would get 2 dollars of "relief" for this season. If he had a longer contract, you would get that relief over the length of the contract.

    You've got to be careful who you sign. Smart moves = balanced salary cap.

    The benefit to releasing guys is using the cap relief to sign other players.
