Patriots' moves spark speculation | ProFootballTalk.com

The release of Tully Banta-Cain, Joey Galloway, Eric Alexander, and Michael Matthews opens up $2.87 million in nonprorated 2009 salary cap space, which in theory allows the Patriots to absorb a player with a full-season base salary of $2.85 million. (Because all players were signed through 2009 only, there's no cap acceleration arising from cutting them.) Some are speculating that the Patriots are making a play for Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman. Coincidentally, his full-season base salary for 2009 is $2.972 million.
