    CB Robert Alford has a $9 million 2021 contract. If cut the Cards will save $7.5 M with $1.5 M in dead money. Cutting him should be a no brainer as he has missed the last two season with injuries.

    Does the dollars change from a pre June 1st to after June 1st cut or is it the same regardless? If they could cut him coming out of camp and still save the $7.5 I would take him into camp and see what happens. If not release him now.

    he’s a 32 year old CB who hasn’t been healthy or actually good even while playing in four years. That 6 million in cap room is needed to replace him during FA. Even if he’s healthy come training camp, he can’t be depended on to be continue to be or be good, IMO.

    Maybe offer a mil more than what his dead cap is. If we’re going to get a vet for the min likely anyway. Or Dre.

    Cut him.

    Offer a $1m one year deal.

    Cap = $1.5m + $1m ($2.5m)

    Let camp decide if he makes final roster.

    this.

    there is NO ONE who’s gonna give that anything close to 7.5. We shouldn’t pay that much for him even if he was healthy.

    Either restructure into something at the very low end of the scale, or cut, I agree.

    One way or another there needs to be a pay cut, even if the team has reason to believe he's looking very good.

    Sounds like a no brainer to me. Why are we even having this discussion. He should be gone. Makes me wonder how many more players we are paying good money for who are contributing nothing except keeping us from winning.

    Cut him. If he had played last year and well that would be different. We need the cap space for someone who will actually be on the field.

    I assume we will wait to make cuts until we re-sign some of our own or sign actual FAs. No hurry at this point.

    I’m actually really surprised he hasn’t been cut yet. Yeah, the cupboard is bare at the moment but 2 years of pay for 0 games played?
