The Chicago Bears need to make adjustments to their salary cap to clear up some room if they want to add new players in free agency. In order to make these signings the Bears need to find a way to add more to the roughly $4-million they are currently under the cap, plus leave room for rookies and their own free agents.
The Bears have a way to add an additional $7.8-million to that $4-million if they cut players who are under performing or it may be best to send packing. If the Bears cut Devin Hester, Earl Bennett, Kellen Davis, Adam Podelesh their base salaries would equal $7.8-million in savings. Base salaries are not guaranteed so the Bears would not owe them that money and that would alleviate some of the pain associated with the cap crunch.no comments
