The NFL can be a cold business.
While free agency can certainly make a lot of players rich, it's not rainbows and unicorns for everyone. Cap casualties are an inevitability under modern collective bargaining rules. Teams have to get under the hard salary cap, and sometimes this means painful cuts.
The proposed 2014 salary cap is set to be $126.3 million, per Tom Pelissero of USA Today. There are plenty of teams slated to be over or near the cap, and they will likely have to make some big cuts to compensate.
