I'm sure AdamJT13 will share his annual salary cap post with us here well before free agency begins in March.
I do happen to have a post from Adam last year about Gerald Sensabaugh that I saved when projecting the 2012 Cowboys' cap.
Gerald Sensabaugh got a $4 million signing bonus. His base salaries are $1 million for 2012, $3 million for 2013, $4 million for 2014, $4 million for 2015 and $6.5 million for 2016.
His cap number for 2012 is $1.8 million.
His base salaries in 2012 and 2013 are guaranteed for injury and become fully guaranteed for that season if he is on the roster on the first day of that league year. That means he'll almost certainly be here for 2012, but we could release him between the end of the 2012 season and the start of the 2013 league year to save cap room, if he isn't worth a $3 million salary for 2013.
So Sensabaugh's 2012 and 2013 base salaries were guaranteed for injury but only become fully guaranteed if he is on the roster at the start of the new league year.
So it looks like Dallas can release him this year, if desired.
It just has to be done before the new league year starts March 12th.
I don't know if the team will cut Sensabaugh loose with Barry Church coming off an Achilles' and Matt Johnson remaining a mystery.
