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.

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. Malik McDowell DL - If you build it, sacks will come
2a. Budda Baker FS
2b. Curtis Samuel WR/RB
3. Sidney Jones CB
4a. Pat Elfein OG
4b. George Kittle TE
5. Marlon Mack RB
6. Joshua Dobbs QB
7. Josh Augusta DT

Chargers New OL:
Okung-Lamp-Slauson-Feeney-Barksdale
Tuerk will replace Slauson in-season

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.
