Yes. The Raiders have some salary cap "dead money" this year. The players concerned are:

As kinz mentins this is basically negated by the cap hit increase for Carson Palmer in 2013. That said, there is nothing to stop Palmer's deal being re-worked again next off-season.
High contract players off contract in 2013 (with 2012 cap hit) are:
Darren McFadden - $6.716,667. McFadden is under contract for 2013 for a $6,922,617 cap hit but this is voidable.
Shane Lechler - $5.65 million
Desmond Bryant - $1.927 million
Mike Mitchell, Matt Shaughnessy and Louis Murphy are all off contracts in 2013 but their cap hits for 2012 are below $1 million.
The cap hit for Richard Seymour is $925,000 less is 2013 than in 2012. As an aside Tommy Kelly's cap hit is greater than Seymour's in 2013. The Raiders could save around $4 million in cap space and $13 million in salary owed for the last 2 years of his contract if the cut Kelly after this season. This can be looked at as a contract year for him. When Al did that deal with Kelly, it was generally assumed that he would not play under the terms of the last 2 years of the deal, unless he becomes elite.
