I have received some Emails regarding the cap savings of those who were released today. Although I do not know how much of the following numbers will be actual money saved off the cap, here are the respective salaries for them for the 2008 season.
Trent Green – Due an end of the month roster bonus between 500 and 750,000. A base salary of 2.8 million in 08. 3.5 in 09.
LJ Shelton – 3 million base in 08 and 3.75 in 09
Keith Traylor – 850,000 base…final year.
Marty Booker – 4.3 Million in 08. And you wonder why he was cut.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will add approximately 7 million to their total cap space after prorated bonuses and guarantees.
