The 2013 NFL offseason is in full swing, and like every offseason, NFL teams are going to look to free some cap space by cutting players with large contracts in preparation for free agency and the 2013 NFL draft.
Many different types of players become cap casualties each offseason for a variety of reasons. Some veterans are over-the-hill with a large cap number and find themselves a casualty.
Others cashed in on big contracts but did not perform up to expectations. Finally, some cap casualties are just let go because the franchise is suffering from years of horrendous financial decisions (looking at you, Oakland).
In the following slideshow we will break down the top cap casualty candidates and explain why each is deserving of being considered. There is, of course, the chance any and all of the candidates will simply restructure their deals to stay with their teams, but are deserving candidates nonetheless.
