NFL 2019 potential cap casualties: Offense

New, comments
NFL: Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

There will be a good number of players who will hit free agency in March because their contract is up. But the full list of available players will change before and after the start of free agency because of what are most often referred to as ‘cap casualties’. Which basically just means players who teams think are paid more than they are worth or more than they can afford and they need to get them off the books before guarantees kick in.

Therefore any lists of free agents won’t entirely include many of the best players who will be available. For instance, Jordy Nelson was the Raiders top receiver last season and he signed with the team after becoming a cap casualty from the Packers.

In the spirit, I have compiled a complete list of players with the highest likelihood of getting cut loose this offseason (barring major contract restructures) whether it be for performance, salary or a combination of the two and I’ve separated them by position for easier browsing. Enjoy.
