Cap Relief: Routt, Seymour Restructure

Adam Caplan reports, Stanford Routt has restructed his deal with the Raiders for much needed cap relief.

Richard Seymour also restructured and he could save the Raiders as much as $11 million against the cap.

The Raiders knew all along how they were going to get under the cap or they would have been cutting players left and right.

The question now is if the Raiders can create enough room to sign Kevin Boss. Darren McFadden is missing from practice and could be restructuring as well.

  • @LeskiwSFBay Say they cut Woodley just b4 next season. He's not landing another job most likely. Leverage to reduce cap #.

  • @LeskiwSFBay That's why some players negotiate roster bonuses due at start of league year. Have time to shop services.

  • @LeskiwSFBay Plenty of money to reel in marquee player assuming they would come. Assuming can keep him for less, still need the bodies/depth
