Arizona Cardinals gain salary cap space with passing of June 1

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With June 1 passing, the Cardinals gain salary cap relief as Daryn Colledge's release finally takes effect.

The Arizona Cardinals gained some salary cap space on Monday as June 1 finally passed. When the team released offensive lineman Daryn Colledge, he was designated a June 1 cut, making it so the team could split up the cap hit over two seasons.

That means his calary come off the books, giving the team rough $5 million more in cap space. As of Monday evening, the NFLPA had the Cardinals with a little more than $7.3 million in salary cap space.

June 1 also achnges the game for free agency and compensatory picks. Any free agent signed at this point will not be used to calculate compensatory picks.

Last offseason, the Cardinals signed Karlos Dansby, Eric Winston and John Abraham after June 1 and ended up with three starters.
