New CBA might allow teams to cut contracts w/o salary cap hit

Been some rumors the new CBA might allow teams to cut players and not take a salary cap hit due to past bonuses carrying forward. This was called "dead money" and it sounds like it might go away. Makes sense because the rule punishes fans as much as owners Now if a team wants to cuts a player they can irrespective of future salary cap considerations. The owners did after all already pay the money and that they can’t undo. So why punish teams twice? If this really is going away then free agency just got a lot more interesting for the Boys as they can get rid of some bad contracts and grab some great players to replace them.
