but then the cap situation becomes a concern as the team is already tight against the cap.
The cap is of no concern right now since they are over it and in LTIR exemption territory. They cannot possibly save up cap space with Demitra on LTIR so whether or not they go over it is immaterial, so long as they fit within Demitra's LTIR exemption. The real maneuvering will come when Demitra is to be activated. Until then, there's no point in trying to save space because it will have no net benefit on the team's cap situation.
