I think the problem with that if he plays X number of games this season, his salary will count towards the cap next season, even if he retires at the end of this season.

I believe right now, he has played below X number of games this season, therefore his salary will only have to be paid this year if he retires before playing any more games.

I think that X is 10 games, meaning he can play 3 more games before he hits that threshold. Make those 3 games home games in the ACC.
