Breaking down the NFL’s most likely cap casualties
Posted by Evan Silva on March 5, 2012, 8:27 PM EST
Peyton Manning AP

We looked earlier this evening at the top free agents remaining in the post-franchise tag period.

Due to large forthcoming bonus payments and/or base salaries, the following ten players could be joining them in free agency soon.

1. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning — You already know. Manning is owed a $28 million roster bonus on Thursday, March 8, and the Colts would shock the world if they paid it.

2. Raiders linebacker Kamerion Wimbley — As Mike Florio has explained, the Raiders must decide Wimbley’s fate prior to March 17. If released, Wimbley can expect hot pursuit from teams in need of a versatile, productive pass rusher.

3. Cardinals tackle Levi Brown — Arizona wants to re-sign Brown to a long-term extension, but he’s fully expected to be released before his $6 million roster bonus comes due on March 12. The sides can resume talks after that.

4. Chargers tackle Marcus McNeill — San Diego is actively working to re-sign free agent Jared Gaither because it knows McNeill will be released in short order. The move will clear $10 million in salary cap space.

5. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma — Likely to be a primary target as the NFL doles out bounty-scandal discipline, Vilma’s on-field performance has declined sharply and he’s no longer worth his $5.4 million base salary.

6. Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman — Owed $5 million in salary and bonuses, the 32-year-old still hasn’t passed his exit physical after three separate knee surgeries since December of 2009.

7. Packers tackle Chad Clifton — Clifton is scheduled to receive a $5.25 million base salary and $203,125 in per-game roster bonuses. He turns 36 before the season and recently underwent surgery on his lower back and hip. Clifton was benched in Green Bay’s playoff loss for ineffectiveness.

8. Rams cornerback Ronald Bartell — St. Louis is expected to be active on the free agent cornerback market, and also has confirmed interest in LSU’s Morris Claiborne. Due a $6.2 million salary and coming off a fractured neck, Bartell could easily be brushed aside in favor of a younger player.

9. Vikings guard Steve Hutchinson — Hutchinson is owed $6.95 million in base pay and a $500,000 offseason workout bonus. After concussions ended his last two seasons, it’s no secret that Hutchinson is in danger of being released.

10. Cardinals linebacker Joey Porter — Porter is due a $5.75 million salary and $250,000 workout bonus in the final season of his contract. $6 million is much too large a figure for a 35-year-old pass rusher who can no longer rush the passer.

Chiefs | May have interest in Kamerion Wimbley

The Kansas City Chiefs could have interest in Oakland Raiders LB Kamerion Wimbley if he is released this offseason.

Wimbly and Vilma would both be GREAT additions to this defense. Immediate starters.

I would love to see Vilma beside DJ. Levi Brown would be a great RT for us also.

Didnt Vilma struggle in a 3-4 in New York? I thought thats why they traded him to the Saints..

From what I read I think the Jets doctors were starting to see problems with his OCD after he had that bad knee injury.

If we could land a guy like Marcus McNeil for cheap..i'd be for it. Im for bringing Gaither back too, but rumor is they really want him back.

They will get Gaither back because he will be taking over for McNeill who could switch to the RT spot for us. Not a bad short term solution. If Levi Brown is available we should bring him in for RT.

Yeah I think the only reason the Vilma got away from the Jets is because of injury.

It was injury.

I would be on board with the McNeil thing. When Wimbley gets released should we be interested?

I'd take Levi Brown over McNeill. Brown was drafted #5 overall to be Matt Leinart's blindside RT, not the LT he currently plays. Throw in McNeill's injury history and I would take Brown every day of the week.

Wimbley will get paid hansomely by some team that is desperate for a pass rusher. He would be a great player to sign, but he's not gonna be much of a priority for the Chiefs.
