Grubbs' 2015 contract will leave behind some dead money. Over The Cap shows that there will be $5.2 million in dead money as a result of this with $1.1 million in true cap savings this year. Dead money refers to a cap charge for a player no longer on the team. The Chiefs, who had over $20 million in dead money last year, had been pretty good about that so far this year up until this point.

Because of Sean Smith leaving for Oakland, and the O-line's follies...I'd agree.

Between Jeff Allen and Sean Smith plus having to swallow some dead money on Grubbs we have taken some hits this year.

Why does the Radio people think that since Grubb was listed as released due to failed physical they cap hit is much lower. Thus being why we were able to sign Schwartz.

It would be cool if we could sign Geoff Schwartz again

That's a good question and one I don't know the answer to. The fact that they used the "Failed Physical" designation on him instead of just an outright kick to the curb does seem to suggest that it somehow affected our dead money on his contract. It would be nice if the failed physical designation saved us some of the dead money hit.

Does anybody here know for sure what practical effect the failed physical designation has?
