As I understand it, on the given date that teams must be under the cap, the league will start releasing players from a teams roster until they are under the cap. They start with the lowest paid players and go until the team is under the cap.
As I read that article, they can create $42.5 million in cap space and the only painfull thing would be releasing Ratliff. So, even if they decide to keep Ratliff, they can get under the cap and have $18-20 million to spend. That can get then Spencer and a few free agents to go with their draft picks.
