Mason Crosby counts $3.6 million in dead money against the salary cap over the next three seasons. That's a lot of money that could potentially go toward handing out contract extensions to other players.

3.6 million reasons to keep Crosby...this could be considered a bonehead move by the Packers front office. I never gave Crosby's guaranteed contract a thought...I never thought we would guarantee a kickers contract for that many years...

Here's one good reason NOT to keep Crosby: He sucks.

I may have it wrong but something about that article does not make sense.

When they say "dead money" I assume that means the amount of his signing bonus that accelerates when he is cut and it sounds like that is 1.8 million.

The article misses a few points. If they cut him they don't have to pay him his base salary of 2.4 million so they save that right off the top. Also, unless the rules have changed regarding signing bonus if they cut him they could defer half the prorated amount until next season. That means Crosby would have a cap hit of 900K this season and not 3.1 million. That is why teams usually made their veteran cuts after June 1st when the new year started so they could split the hit over two years.

Its not a matter of 1.8 million because they could easily save that over 3 years by the reduced salary of the new guy.

I don't see salary cap as an issue here at all and in fact I would say it would make more sense to cut him cap wise than to keep him, assuming you would get equal performance from a new kicker. The dead money you would have to count against the cap (even if the full 1.8 million counted and not just 900K like I think would) plus the new kicker salary would likely still be less than 3.1 million cap hit if you keep Crosby. The way I see it you would gain cap space.
thanks Post received 2 applause.

sschind, comin' through with the goods! Well done! I could not agree more. Huge savings over those 3 years by releasing him, and, maybe some game winning field goals to boot!

Zero2Cool (37m) : Jordy, the real #1 got his before him so he is more elite. Deal with it. Game time coming!
uffda udfa (40m) : Another #1 gets his $Julio Jones signs 5-year extension; $47M in guarantees
uffda udfa (4h) : They don't Steve...but Wilde had Guion as "IN"
sschind (7h) : guy will be ready injury wise by week 4 have him toke up and get caught.
sschind (7h) : how soon before teams start asking players to violate policy so they can keep them on the team and not have to countthem on the active roste
steveishere (9h) : I don't think suspended players count toward the 53
uffda udfa (17h) : Incredible! Wilde's 53 man roster doesn't even have Datone Jones as "IN"...he's "looking good". Sad, a 3rd year 1st rounder isn't a lock f
Smokey (21h) : Attention Guests: Come join us here in the Forum ! A great place to post !
Smokey (21h) : 3rd Qtr/ Jax 17 Det 13
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
