Quite amazing.

2 former top 10 picks and a free-agent signing from last season.

Heyward-Bay and Huff should fine work, Tollefson might not.

How much does that free up ? Huff is a surprise but his cap number was pretty high I think. Who are the FA safeties?

Edit- think it it's $6.65m with $8m for DHB? Lot of cap space with Kelly and McClain likely to go as well. Interesting moves.

His cap number was huge compared to his play.
All 3 will find teams, for how much $$ is a different story.

Good riddance to Heyward-Bust, Michael Huff was too inconsistant for my liking, and Tollefson was a free agent-signing failure.

The three releases of Huff, DHB, and Tollefson save #Raiders a combined $15.5 million off the 2013 cap. They are now $23 million under.

I doubt it...

DHB means 5,341,000
Huff means 1,719,250
Dave means 900,000

according to spotrac, overthecap...

Huff was due a $4m roster bonus, does that affect the figures?

Quote:
With the new CBA, teams are allowed to split the cap hits of 2 players over two seasons prior to June 1st. That means the Raiders $14.5 million is cap space with these three moves. This brings them to $23 million under the cap as of now

I respect DHB, but its for the best. Huff is a little more surprising to me. I am OK with it, we already knew this team would look a lot different in a couple seasons anyway. I wonder what we are going to do about FS now? Seems to be a lot of veteran talent in the FA pool.
