Just remember that the money saved on post June 1 cuts can't be used until June 2 or later. Its money that could be used for signing draft choices or in season injury replacements. Here is an interesting article that explains it in detail.
"The basic idea is that a team can release a player, who may actually cost more to cut than to keep, with a way to spread the dead money cap hit across multiple years. Teams can wait until June 2 (thus, the "post" June 1 designation) to release a player, but that would mean the player would miss the majority of the free agent spending sprees that happen in the spring. To try to help with that issue, the NFL and the NFL Players Association collectively bargained two June 1 designations. Twice during the offseason, a team can release a player designated as a post-June 1 cut, which gives the team the savings the two-year dead money assistance, while allowing the player to hit free agency in March.
Everything sounds perfect for both player and team.
But, that's where the post-June 1 designation offers a false promise. It does save a team money - just not when they would want it. The player is still carried on the books until June 2. In other words, there is no savings for the team during free agency. They do not see salary cap relief until they pass the June 1 mark."http://www.thephinsider.com/2015/2/18/8 ... xplanation
Where this comes into play Bobby is what I call, the 2nd period of FA, the TC cut list, every year there are good players who end up on those cut lists in Aug.
I personally think the Fins are not looking to spread the money out over 2 years, I think they're trying to kill off these bad money contracts, not trying to stretch out these bad money contracts, but this is just imo.
