Currently the Lions are projected to be between 45-50 mil under the cap.
GG, Martin and A’Shawn are all expected to test FA. None are expected to be back.
M. Jones, Decker, Galloday and Slay are all wanting contract extensions. Some cap space will go here.
Snacks and Wagner could be sent packing to help clear up another 10 mil.
Slay is on the books for 13 mil. They would have approx 10 mil in savings if they cut or trade him. Rumor is he’s on the trade block.
Cutting Kennard would save the Lions almost another 5.8 mil. So I think he’s a possible cap casualty.
M. Jones is scheduled to make over 9 mil and the Lions could save 6.8 of it if they trade or cut him. Which is a possibility considering he finished two years in a row on the IR. If he’s not in the long term plans BQ could choose to move on now.
BQ and MP know they must win now. I think the message is clear that the Lions will be buyers come free agency. I think they are gearing up to make a splash.
I have a feeling we’re going to see a lot of roster changes this offseason.
