Cutting Ratliff saves 1 mill?
No it does not. We owe 6 mill on his SB. His 2013 Salary is 5 mill. My guess is that you are thinking the difference between the remaining 6 mill of his bonus and the 7 mill we'd be charged against the cap is 1 mill.
What you are missing -- and I know this has been brought up about a million times -- is that Ratliff's 2013 salary is guaranteed. He gets that 5 mill regardless so there are no savings here.
