    The way that works is if we outright cut him today or anytime before June 1st all of his prorated signing bonus money ($30M he signed in 2011($5M each year of his contract)) would all count against the cap this year. So instead of eating the $10M we still owe him over the next 2 years, we'd have to absorb that money this year, which would put us over the cap by $2M. If we cut CJ today, we'd actually be forced to cut someone else too. So we'll try shopping him or just wait it out.
