Butler Retirement Cap Friendly

The retirement of LeRoy Butler will do little harm to the Packers future cap.<p>

Andrew Brandt and his staff wisely avoided the final two years of his contract in the offseason when they renogiated Butler's deal in June. In other words, the Packers absorbed all of Butler's prorated signing bonus of $1.4 million in this year's cap. Butler's base salary of $750,000 will not count against this year's cap.
