    Does anyone know what happens cap wise if they just don't do anything? Say AB doesn't report because he wants traded and the team just sits on its hands. Do they get cap relief like with the Bell situation?

    Bell was not under contract and the salary for each week he failed to report was taken off the cap since the Steelers no longer had to pay him for that week once he failed to report

    Brown is under contract - my understanding is they cannot get his salary off the cap if he was not traded and failed to report unless they release him, which is not going to happen. In the unlikely event they would release him there still would be cap implications for his prorated bonus.

    This was discussed when Earl Thomas was threatening not to report in Seattle last summer

    During the regular season, players are paid weekly and Thomas would get docked 1/17th of his base salary ...

    Could the Seahawks just cut Thomas?

    A: They could. A release of Thomas would save $8.5 million for the 2018 season both in cash and against the salary cap.

    With regard to how a bonus hits the cap for a released player

    Whatever the reason, the Collective Bargaining Agreement allows teams to escape contracts for basically any reason (the only real exception to this is that a player cannot be cut while he is on the team's injury report unless an injury settlement is reached).

    So, what happens to a player's salary cap hit if he is cut? That depends heavily on when he's cut.


    For any player cut before June 1, all remaining, prorated bonus money accelerates so that it is counted in the current year

    For post-June 1 cuts, though, the accounting changes. In this case, only the current year's bonus money is counted against the team's current-year salary cap. All remaining bonus money after the current year .... is accelerated onto the next year's cap.

    I was hoping there was some clause that if a player was holding out or not reporting, you could get cap relief. Because that would basically solve the problem.

    As far as he's concerned, everything is A-O-K.
