Can you elaborate? You may be right, but without some details I'm not inclined to believe jasonluckydog over Adam Schefter.
At first I agreed with you that there is no way we are 8 million under. But I think it may be even more than that.
First reports had us entering the offseason at 10 million under the cap. The cap has since been increased by 4 million giving the team 14 million under.
They have signed 4 players to contracts; Peppers, Gross, King and Anderson. Those contracts total 19.338 million.
They have made several moves including cuts, restructures and extensions. Those moves I have totaling 15.540 million in cap savings. Here's a quick run down of those moves: Goings .75, Bridges 1.25, Hackett 1.04, Lewis 2.00, Johnson 1.00, Kemo 1.50 and Gamble 8.00.
So 14.000 - 19.338 + 15.540 = 10.202 million in cap space
. My guess is that Schefter hasn't included that 8 million move with Gambles contract.
