How many years are left on Boulwares contract? Do you know where to find info on his upcoming cap #s?

I don't think they'll make any cap cuts. Boulware is the only one that would make sense since he's got a big salary and probably won't be a starter next year. But they can afford to keep him around for depth and see if he's got anything left. You can't have too many pass rushers.

According to NFLPAs site he's signed through 2008 and will make six million a year in base salary for the rest of his contract. I'm not sure how big a signing bonus he got but that should be added to his cap figure (spread equally over the length of his contract)

i guess that contracts effect is dependent on the salary cap changes

If the Raven's are concerned with Boulware's cap number then they would first look at re-negotiating his contract, he would never just get cut.
