    How is this me trying to be smart?

    You said it is never reported he gets his man. That is not true. There have been multiple examples of the opposite.

    you did not say 'is not always.' You said

    I am not going to apologize for expecting accuracy or pointing out inaccuracies. If you think that is someone 'attempt(ing) to be smart' then that is just a difference in standards.

    There are two types of June 1st cuts.

    1. You can designate a player as a June 1st cut, but go ahead and cut him in the spring. You will not get the June 1st savings until June 1st; however, the player is free to sign with other teams.

    2. You can wait until June 1st to actually cut the player.

    The limit is on #1. I'm not certain if the limit is 1 or 2 players. It does not really matter because there is no real benefit to the team in releasing the player early.

    In Regards to Ratliff. Part or all of his 2013 base salary is guaranteed.

    Its two players. The only benefit to the move is to avoid players earning money during the free agency periods (workout bonus and roster bonuses or P5 guarantees) when your cap is so bad that you simply cant handle the immediate acceleration. Few teams use it. I think maybe 3 did last season.

    The Cowboys used it on Newman last year.

    This is excellent. Do you have this for 2014?
