They also have several veterans that might be released post June 1st, Ashley Ambrose, Orlando Ruff and Fred Thomas, who will save some more cap space.
They also appear to be close to done in free agency and I don't expect any big time moves to be made, even post June 1st.
With the money they'd save by trading Howard and their cap room they could lock up a lot of players long term.
Can you say Deuce McAllister?
