It wouldn't feel like a Raider offseason without the drama of their annual salary cap conundrum. This year will be no different. Even after releasing Stanford Routt, the Raiders are $11 million over the cap. While the salary cap is rarely an issue for teams, assuming players are willing to restructure, there are always guys like Routt who end up being released. In Routt's case, the issue was as much about the ludicrous money he would make down the road as it was the $5 million roster bonus he was due on February 10.
