If they let him medically retire, they won't see the cap relief for a calander year. And that's after it's approved. They had to get him off the cap faster than that to sign Crawford, even if it meant paying his salary.

Maybe someone else can lend their wisdom on whether an amnestied player's salary can be retro-actively covered by insurance if the player is unable to play?
