Overthecap shows he would have a $12.5 dead hit for LA in 2023 and in 2024 if he was traded post June 1st. Not too bad for them, but any team trading for him will still be paying quite a bit plus whatever it takes to acquire him. If he was traded, I'd imagine it would be an in-season trade and even then I doubt it.
His contract is interesting to say the least.
OTC shows a cap hit of 29.34mil in 25, his first void year but only the 8mil prorated bonus in 25 and 26(void years)
Spotrac shows the 8mil, but a 6.66mil roster bonus in 25 and 26.
So, the 29.34mil cap hit makes sense in that it all accelerates once the contract truly voids at the end of 24. So, he has a 20mil option that becomes fully guaranteed if he's on the roster in 24. So, the dead cap in 2025 would be 13.33mil if traded and the prorated original signing bonus is eaten by the Rams when traded.
But, the way I see it, if he's traded post june 1st, the Rams eat the 12.5mil bonus in 23, but in 24 they eat the Prorated signing bonus in 24/25/26 for a dead cap of 28.5mil.
