I don't know if Crosby gets cut he's still a decent kicker and is what 2-3 million salary? I keep him before I keep P. Smith

Not sure if I like void years on a RB like Jones. I get that the offense runs thru his and even more so without 12 at QB but short shelf life also and he not the kind of guy who can take pounding.

Agree I just go move on from guys Trade Rodgers let Adams go and cut Turner, P Smith, Z Smith, Lowery, Cobb, Lewis

These moves alone put you $30+ under the cap

OK, here goes........................

2021: current cap room $5.925M
2022: current cap <overage> <$33.77M>
Green Bay likely rolls over a small amount of 2021 cap into 2022........say $2M. Reduces the 2022 overage to <$31M>.

Obvious Players not coming back:
Aaron Rodgers: Traded. (2nd, but maybe 1st if 3 or more teams get involved)
Z. Smith: Released. Back injury makes it too risky to keep and/or extend his contract
Dean Lowry: Released. Underperforming current contract
Marcedes Lewis: Released: Age. Get the feeling that when Rodgers leaves, he leaves too.
P. Smith: Released. There's no way an extension will lower his cap number enough to make it work.
Possible Players not coming back:
Billy Turner: Released. Reason - Age (31 next year). An extension would be only way to keep him, but unlikely given age-cost-cheaper replacements already on roster. OT draft pick high possibility.
Mason Crosby: Released. Reason - Age & cost. With a cap # of $4.735M it just doesn't work.The rest of this season is an audition for him.
Possible Extensions:
Adrian Amos: His value is hard to replace, but his cap # is too high. His stability is worth an extension
Jaire Alexander: Obvious extension. $13.29M 2022 cap # could be cut in half
Wild Card Extension:
Davante Adams: Franchise Tag / Trade. His talent says "stay". His age & cost says trade (Get a 1st or 2nd)

The Numbers: (from OTC)
Rodgers: 2022 cap # $46.144M Cap Savings: $19.297M
Z. Smith: 2022 cap # $28.130M Cap Savings: $15.750M
Lowry: 2022 cap # $7.922M Cap Savings: $3.934M
Cobb: 2022 cap # $9.641M Cap Savings: $6.858M
P-Smith: 2022 cap # $19.750M Cap Savings: $12.50M
Subtotal: Cap Savings: $58.339M
Turner: 2022 cap # $8.99M Cap Savings: $3.180M
Crosby: 2022 cap # $4.735M Cap Savings: $2.395
Subtotal: Cap Savings: $63.914M

Extension Savings:

Amos: Cap Savings: ~ $3M
Alexander: Cap Savings: ~ $7M

Total Potential Cap Savings: ~ $74M

2022 Cap Space Created: ~ $43M

Draft/free agency needs created by doing this:
EDGE; WR; OT; DL
