Problem with this approach is that the team would basically have to come to camp with a $56M payroll to leave cushion for Gomez. If Gomez doesn't make the roster and gets sent down, the team then sits $7-8M under the cap and nothing to spend it on. If the team goes out and signs a couple of 2nd tier FAs (not even considering Suter/Parise) Gomez making the team would push the payroll over the cap.

The team will have to decide by July 1 whether they intend to bury Gomez or not.
