    June 1st does it still exist?

    Just wondering, I honestly am falling behind in my football knowledge. I remember last year with the new cap it was kind of non existent. I wasn't sure if that was a 1 year thing or if it's a lasting change in football free agency. However if there are June drops... any idea on who they may be??

    Re: June 1st does it still exist?

    To answer your question, yes, the June 1st transition is still in effect in the NFL. For those who don't know, June 1st is when you can cut a player and the cap hit for his signing bonus is prorated for this year and the rest is on NEXT year's cap. The issue is that teams are for the most part so good with the cap now a days that there are no major June 1st cap casualties because teams have enough cap room for their rookies. You'll still see a few people cut, who would have abnormally large cap hits, but you won't see anyone really good get dropped.

    I was going to devote a thread to this, but seeing this is here:

    Does anybody have any prospects in mind for June 1? Of course we don't know who's going to be cut, but sheerly for the sake of speculation...who ya got?

    The only notable cut I remember hearing about in the last few days was Travis Henry in Denver.

    Wow!! I hadn't heard that one. So who in the world is going to be the RB for Denver now? Remember when the Broncos seemed to have a huge stable (pun intended) of RB's? Now I'm not sure they've got anyone other than Mark Bell.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    I figure Selvin Young is the starter. He actually outrushed (729, 5.2) Henry (691, 4.1) last year. Andre Hall and Mike Bell probably duke it out for the back-up spot.
