Cap casualty season: Here are some likely big-name victims
Carson Palmer, Raiders ($13 million base salary):
There is no way Oakland is going to pay him that kind of money to stay, sources said, and Palmer will have to decide how much cash he's willing to walk away from to stay.
Darius Heyward-Bey, Raiders ($7.7 million):
He flashed progress in 2011 but had another lost year in 2012. The Raiders are again in a roster/cap crunch and are still trying to get out from under bad contracts. I can't fathom him making this to stay.
Rolando McClain, Raiders ($4 million):
He has been nothing but trouble off field, was basically sent home for the final quarter of last season and I would expect the Raiders to look to recoup some signing bonus as well when they officially part with him.
