I have tried to figure out how a player affects the salary cap if he is not a free agent or restricted. In this case, if Bobby Carpenter were traded, what hit would the Cowboys take on the salary cap?
I don’t know how to figure that stuff out, and I am trying. However, someone else posted on a Cowboys forum this:
$2.1 Million cap charge to keep him.
$4.5 Million to trade him.
Yikes. That blows my recent mock draft out of the water. Looks like Bobby Carpenter isn’t going anywhere.
But what about Marcus Spears?
