If Chad Johnson gets traded, it would mean a reported $8.03 million hit

I learned one thing this week. It's that no one truly understands NFL capology nor is there a true understanding of why a number exists.

For example, Mark Curnutte, on his blog, said that trading the receiver would account for an $8.8 million cap hit.

Geoff Hobson claims the Bengals would have a $6-7 million hit.

Curnutte amended his $8.8 million to $8.03 million. To me, the 8.03 number is the right number. Why? Well, anytime you start including numbers into the tenths, then you're a hellva lot closer than any estimation.
