Free Agent/Cap Questions


First of all, congratulations on your Mavericks. I'm a die-hard Blazer/Cowboy fan, so this draft kind of numbed the pain a bit. Gotta give you guys credit though, you simply shot a lot better than we did. If we would have had Kidd/Terry out there shooting for us it might have been a different series.

That said, I have some questions for those who know more than me regarding the upcoming free agent class. Please excuse my ignorance...

I know a lot of this probably depends on what happens with the new CBA. Still though, I'm hopeful I can develop a better understanding of what I can expect this off-season once the NFL officially gets under way. 

I hear a lot of talk about cutting different guys this summer to save money. MBIII, Bigg, Columbo, Hurd, RoyDub, the usual suspects. So, by cutting these guys, does that actually free up their salaries completely to go sign other free agents? Or does Jerry still owe them money, it just doesn't count against the cap? Obviously if there is no cap, Jerry can do whatever he wants, but my main question is what happens with the remaining contracts? Are they completely un-guaranteed?

Finally, I thought it would be cool to get a collection of opinions of who we should go out and grab. I'd love to see us go out and grab Joseph and Huff along with a G to replace Bigg. I definitely think we should resign Spears/Bowen (at least to short-term deals) and then go get a CB/S/OG in free agency. The ultimate question: is it financially possible to get upgrades at those 3 positions?

I'd love any input
