Daniel was set for a cap hit of 8 million this year. Cutting him means we have a cap hit of 7 million.

So, we actually save 1 million. I mean its close to nothing though.



I doubt either of those two numbers end up being the case in the end. No way the Eagles "Don't Trade" Daniels if a deal was in place and in the end it saved them 💰 rather then cutting him. I believe the BGN report that they worked something out instead of sending him to purgatory or a team he didn't want to play for.

Turns out offset language in his deal means any $ other teams pay him the Eagles get back in cap relief. So there is more than 1m too makes more sense. Still hard to see they will not pay more with Foles' guaranteed money added given both are backups. Is he really that much of an upgrade at backup?

So if he signs somewhere making say 4M, the Eagles get 4M back for their Cap? 2M, 3M, etc?

They would get the $4m back and be on the hook for the $3m in remaining dead cap I believe.
