Salary cap expert Joel Corry joined Booger and Rich to discuss whether or not the Bucs can afford to cut Mike Williams and what Jeremy Zuttah’s release means for their cap space.
Corry said the Bucs can cut Mike Williams right now with no negative salary cap consequences. Corry said that right now he counts $1.8 million against the cap and, if cut, could count $1.2 million against the cap meaning the Bucs would actually save $600,000 in cap space this season. Bottom line is if the Bucs are tired of Mike Williams, they can cut him without taking a cap hit.
Corry also said that the move to trade Jeremy Zuttah saved the Bucs $4.5 million in cap space. Right now, the Bucs have close to $16.75 million in cap space after the move.
