So for you guys expecting to get that money to be used if he does retire...think again.

Also found the McKenzie article about this: Careful Signing Veterans
man, this is crazy! Players can just decide to retire and then the team is still stuck with their salary for the cap. Wow!

Still, if Niewy decides to retire, the cats won't have to really pay the salary, so they have the money to spend as long as they are not next to the cap.
