2013: $8,000,000 salary + $2,400,000 remaining bonuses = $10,400,000 total cap hit
2014: $10,000,000 salary + $2,400,000 remaining bonuses = $12,400,000 total cap hit
2015: $11,500,000 salary + $1,000,000 remaining bonuses = $12,500,000 total cap hit

What do the Falcons save if they cut Dunta?
With post June 2nd designation, they save $8,000,000 in 2013, $9,000,000 in 2014 and $12,500,000 in 2015.
Without post June 2nd designation, they save $4,600,000 in 2013, $12,400,000 in 2014 and $12,500,000 in 2015.

It's time to let him go and use the money in future years for someone who is better.

Been saying that he would be gone all season because of his cap number and the money we would save, and that a 1/2 rd CB was a need, even though no one else would realize it.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing him go. I like the guy but not for that price. To go further on this subject I wouldn't mind seeing a house cleaning on the secondary. The only people I see worthy of a spot are McClain and Samuel.

I think Nolan needs to make a statement with this defense by bringing in guys he wants.

what? Decoud and Moore are excellent. Or are you just talking corners?

Lol. Just corners. No DeCoud and Moore are real solid I want them on this team as long as possible.

Maybe a restructure? I've grown to really like Dunta, and feel that Dunta, Asante, and McClain is an awesome combo. Do you guys think McClain could take over as a starter when these guys leave.

I would not feel comfortable going into 2013 with McClain as the starter. There are tons of one year wonders at the CB spot. I would want another year of good play out of the nickle before he takes over.

Id personally love to draft a CB early, and bring in a vet(if we dont restructure Dunta). Have 4 potentially solid CBs, because Samuel is getting older, and he could continue to miss some time.

I still think we should bring Grimey back.

I think cutting Dunta and re-signing Grimes is the best way to go about it

Cut Dunta, resign Grimes, spend a mid round pick on a high ceiling player

I'll miss him and his swag, but if this is true then we need to let him go and use the money to resign Moore and Grimes. I just hope Grimes doesn't ask for a ridiculous contract... I really will miss Dunta though, I like him a lot.

Shoot. I'd give up two 1st rounders for Revis if we could handle him financially.
