$5mil saved with $6mil in dead $.

How much will they spend on his roster replacement?

His contract is through age 31. There isn't incentive for the Eagles to risk going past that age for a speed/quickness guy.

How much incentive is there for Curry to agree to a new deal?

How much would you give back if you were him?

I suppose you have to look at what someone else would pay given his age and recent performance.

Cutting him after next year costs $4mil in dead $, $2mil after 2019.

Vinny's replacement will either be a rookie or a guy that comes in for the vet minimum so it will only cost the Birds about $500,000 to replace him with a vet but the rookie would depend on how high that he's drafted. I think that they have to release him and then hope that they can sign him back if he won't restructure.

I'm not aware they can release him before June 1 without incurring the $6 mil in dead cap $. OTC says they get $9 mil in cap space with only $2mil in dead $ after June 1

He would have to agree to a restructured deal. It seems that players usually get an extra year on the contract when they do that. Do you want to do that for a "speed guy" who would be 32 yrs old?

I still think the more likely outcome is that C Long is cut, Barnett gets starter minutes in a rotation and S Means gets some reps in obvious passing situations.

I don't know the implications of a trade but OTC indicates a similar problem with dead$. I assume there is a long list of possibilities there.

I wonder if they are trying to get Curry to help them so they don't have to cut Celek before they have to be under the cap later this month. Celek would be a good guy to have around in camp even if he does not make the team.
