Real question is can a player have two different teams retain his salary?
I'm going to say no based on the rules Jimmi posted from Cap Geek. I believe the league would view the 50% max restriction to apply to the total cap hit so if Buffalo is retaining 50% of the cap hit no more salary can be retained in subsequent trades. You can make two trades that retain cap hit but they can only total 50% of the players cap hit.
