FS ???

There's an obvious hole at FS and I would exactly call the other CB spot done either. TE is another area of need and WR is not exactly lighting the world on fire. Assuming we keep our draft picks, we should get a starter at #3 and the rest of the picks would hopefully vie for playing time although it's doubtful they would start.

The cap impact from the draft would put us over by $1.279M therefore more moves are needed - and I don't mean signing Mike Jenkins. Rolando McClain is still consuming a roster spot, but ditching him doesn't help the cap. He counts $6.675M against the cap right now but he still has $10.895M in "dead money". Classifying him as a June 1st cut would give us $870k in cap room for 2013 but push $4.84M of dead money into 2014. Plus we wouldn't see these cap savings until June 2nd this year (similar to Michael Huff).

Once we hit June 2nd, the cap room would climb back up to $4.5M with the rookies in the fold but a weak and shallow roster. That means little to no room for injury replacements. So look for a few more veteran minimum signings and then that's about it...sadly.
