Contracts can be bought out at 2/3rds the total value as was stated. The problem is the entire amount of the buyout counts against the cap so it doesn't save much. The pre-Aug 1st. buyouts were different in that they were cap exempt.

I'm with sarcastro. I would dump Draper for nothing just to free up the salary space. I'd even ship him & a late round future pick in a package if that's what it took to get him off our hands. It's a shame to have to say this kind of thing about such a likeable guy, but Draper is nowhere near worth what he's paid, and with the salary cap that makes him a hindrance to success.
