LOL, WTF do you think happens? Dead guys don't cash checks, they don't have cap hits either. It's the longest-term injured reserve you can go on, my friend.
Okay, I laughed at that last sentence.
But you're actually wrong. If a 35+ contracted player dies, his cap hit doesnt leave. Obviously he'd be LTIR'd, but the contract doesnt come off the books. The team is just allowed to exceed the cap by that amount until it does.
