    His cap hit for 2023 is 36.6 mil...4.6 mil for 2024

    If the Titans choose to cut Tannehill they will not owe him his $27 million in base salary, but would still get hit for $9.6 million against the cap from his bonus and restructure payments. They would also owe him an extra $9.2 million from his void years (2024, 2025).

    That’s $18.8 million in dead cap remaining on his contract that Tennessee would pay Tannehill, even if he’s not on the roster. That’s also $17.8 million in cap space savings from the $36.6 million they would have to pay to keep him.

    well there ya go then...

    so like $10m CAP each year


    that makes it possible then... I was thinking not at all possible


    I still say unless you have someone better taking snaps then rolling with T17 in 23 is the way to go

    If he restructures...36 for Tannehill is too much, way too many other spots to fill

    players always win by restructering... T17 wins by taking the 42 and spreading payment over 3 seasons ( 1 year extension ) knowing he would be cut after 24...

    Titans lower CAP to like $14m for each of the 3 season ( possibly even lower if last year get split into 2 CAP years)

    Titans & T17 both win that deal

    as for $36m CAP in 23... in reality cutting T17 would only net $17m CAP... unless you have a superior QB planned for that CAP the cut is not likely IMO, but I now see how the haters are more plausible with their cut T17 talk

    Hope it can get that low, but I’m thinking it’ll probably be closer to $18-20 mil a season with an extension involved.
    3/$60 mil seems fairly reasonable for a vet QB in a league where not enough starting QBs are available for 32 teams.
    How that $60 mil would breakdown, possibly like his previous contract where the back end has a higher cap hit with the possibility of cutting before/after 2024.

    If we cut Tanney and Dupree it is going to save against the cap but alot of dead money. What blows my mind is having 9 million in dead money on Julio Jones next year how did J-Rob let that happen?
