An Early Look at Potential 2016 NFL Cap Casualties

An Early Look at Potential 2016 NFL Cap Casualties
Untitled Document

As the 2015 regular season winds down, the rumor mill for next year's roster spots is already heating up. We'll continuously highlight players who have been rumored to be potential cap casualties, or in any way on the "roster bubble".

The following contains a list of those initial players, including:
2016 Cap: the player's current 2016 cap figure.
Chance: Our take on the likeliness of the trade/release occurring (A is very likely, D is very unlikely).
Trade/Release Notes: Specific notes highlighting the dead cap, cap savings, and various scenarios associated with that player's 2016 financial breakdown to the best of our knowledge.

We'll continue to update this list as new reports come in, and feel free to continue the conversation surrounding these players by following and reaching out to us @spotrac.
