    Why don’t teams make trades like this:

    we have a salary cap problem. If you take player X off our hands, we will give you player A and/or a draft pick.

    • Its hard to do that because of the timing involved. You cant execute a trade until the start of the new League Year but the team has to be under the cap by the start of the new League Year. Essentially you have to have your cap in order before you can do a trade so it leads to players just being cut instead. The Sproles trade is an example of what you are talking about where they decided one of the runners needed to go but were able to get the cap ok first to dangle that out there.
