The Arizona Cardinals can move on from linebacker Josh Bynes in the off-season. Ultimately, new head coach Kliff Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim will make that decision.
If the Cardinals elect to move on from Bynes, according to Spotrac, he would have made $1.9 million since signing with the team. Arizona would face $666,667 in dead cap space in making the move.
If they release him now, they will not be responsible for paying the final two years of a three-year, $5.575 million deal he signed with the team.
By releasing him, they would not be responsible for $2.08 million due for the 2019 season. In addition, the same for the $2.1 million owed for the 2020 season.
The 29-year-old Lauderdale Lakes, Florida native has spent the last two seasons with the Cardinals. He previously played for the Baltimore Ravens and the Detroit Lions before coming to the Cardinals.
This past season, he made 11 starts with the team. He had 75 tackles, including five tackles for a loss, and three quarterback hits.
He also had 2.0 sacks, one fumble recovery, which was returned for a 23-yard touchdown, and five pass deflections.
In his two seasons with the Cardinals, he has had 25 appearances, including 12 starts. He had 102 tackles, including seven tackles for a loss, and four quarterback hits.
Bynes had 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, which was returned for a 23-yard touchdown, and eight pass deflections.
