Lets not act as if the Jets won't be able to save 12-14 million by releasing Scott and Pace next offseason as well. One of the main reasons why we drafted Demario Davis as high as the 3rd round, was to develop/groom Demario this up coming season in order for Davis to possibly/potentially become our future replacement to Bart Scott. Which is why it's so important for Maybin to come into his own as an outside pass rusher this up coming season, but chances are, we're going OLB during the first round (especially if we release Pace).
Where did you get these numbers from? or is this just the salary of those players this year. and not their total cap hit, The salary is the only thing you save if he is cut, but for accounting purposes is is not the whole cost of having that player at that position.
