Default If you were GM, how would you open up more cap space?

Spotrac has this awesome tool that shows you how much CAP we have (5.8M after tagging Ingram) and how much we could gain from removing whatever player we wanted from the Roster.

I was able to generate about 38M on releasing players like Dunlap, Franklin, Fluker, Stevie, Hairston, Stuckey and Lowery. All players we can do without.

Go play GM and see how you do. Enjoy. Make sure you click on "Manage This Roster" on top right hand side.

Mock Draft:

What I would do:

Trade down and pick up an extra 2nd if possible. I'd also try and move down in 2nd for an extra 4th.

1. Marshon Lattimore CB
2a. Budda Baker S
2b. Taylor Moton G/RT
3. Isaiah Ford WR
4a. Derek Rivers ED
4b. Samaje Perine RB
5. George Kittle TE
6. Isaiah McKenzie KR - SO FUN TO WATCH
7. Josh Augusta DT

What I think TT will do first 3 rounds:

1. Malik Hooker S
2. Dan Feeney OG
3. Juju Smith-Schuster WR

all of those guys maybe not franklin, you do not save anything this season. the other 2 olinemen yes and flowers i am releasing too. maybe not stuckey. a lot of cap space can be created and we need it and upgrade the talent in free agency and this draft. we get it right this year will be contending and then you can get a qb to be the heir to rivers as well at some point.

Cut Flowers, Franklin, Fluker and Stuckey.

Draft/groom replacements or challengers for Liuget, Ingram and KA as potential cuts in '18.... groom OT behind Dunlap for definitive replacement in '17 or '18.

Liuget is garbage in my opinion, so its a wash I suppose.

Then again when you compare Free to our current OLT options he's God.
