I don't see JD/Woody paying for Duane not to play, unless he is completely broken., That’s not how they’ll look at it. It’s a sunk cost because that’s money they already paid him for 2022, not new money they’re going to pay him beyond that. e.g. Even if they keep him - and pay him another $10MM for the 2023 season - the last 3 fake years after that void anyway for an additional $4.7MM in dead money in 2024. Their only choice is whether or not they feel Brown is worth $10MM in new money. The amount of “dead cap” was factored in the day they signed him to a $10MM/year deal that only hit the 2022 cap at $4MM. That other $6MM had to eventually come off the cap, too, and was always going to be in the form of a lump sum dead cap hit. Douglas - and therefore Woody - knew that there’d be either a (roughly) $5MM or $6MM dead cap hit the day they signed him. It’s a non-factor. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
