The 35 players under contract, refer to the players whom were on the starting roster for the 2012 season and their cap hit, because the assumption is they will be part of the player count against the salary cap.
plus, there are at least 4 guys out of this 50 that, IMO, are unlikely to be on the 2013 roster at their given salaries:
DJ Williams: $6M
Joe Mays: $4M
Caleb Hanie: $1.25M
Andre Caldwell: $900k
in dead money, cutting these guys could cost:
DJ: $500k in accelerated signing bonus
so, cutting these 4 guys saves roughly $11.2M.
