Cap Update - Otah v/s Murphy

Carolina, who apparently tried to trade away OT Jeff Otah, then found WR Louis Murphy available - you may be willing to assume they tried to trade evenly but Oakland wouldn't go for it - turns out to be around an even swap, as both were traded for conditional 7th round draft picks.

Capwise, it's not much different - Otah, who was to make $1.067 million this year, was in the final year of his deal, so he didn't cost anything extra against the cap - the team saves the entire amount.  On the back end, Murphy's salary is $1.2 million, so the team gained $100,000 worth of salary in the move.
