a two-fer for "2023 is a reset year"

After weeks of speculation and the Cardinals unable to find a trade partner, Hopkins was released on Friday.
The Cardinals will absorb a dead salary cap hit of $21 million in 2023, but he will be cleared from the books after that. (They could declare him a June 1 cut, which would allow them to spread the hit evenly over this season and next if they choose.)

Wow that seems crazy but I assume they just couldn't find a trade partner?

I guess if you're going to do it and tank might as well rip the band aid off and take the hit now.

I hope he ends up on a contender would like to see him get a shot at a ring.

so -- $9mm more cap space this year, $15mm next

not sure what they have planned for the $25mm in cap space this year, other than to carry most of it into 2024

Y’all still fans of this trash organization? Lol

I swear it’s comical how bad the cardinals are run. So it’s that bad between Hopkins and the Cardinals you couldn’t just keep him.
