Texans: $4.7 million over.

Panthers: $5.3 million over.

Raiders: $7.4 million over.

Lions: $11.5 million over.

Cardinals: $16.4 million over.

- PFT

There you go. We're officially 5.3m over. That's really not that bad. All we need to do is restructure Thomas Davis and one other, and we'll be good.

Not as bad as I thought, we can cut Jimmy, restructure TD's, and we can play around with a few other contracts and move money around.

$5m is not bad at all.

We can restructure few contracts, sign Smitty and Gamble to a new deals and we will be $20m under.

Nice work Marty.

To sign our draft picks, retain a couple of our free agents and maybe add a key free agent or two we shouldn't need to shave more than 20-30 million dollars off our current number.

Can I say Super Man Mario Williams????? That would be sick if we could get him, I forget where I seen it, but I read an article about Mario saying he wouldn't mind playing for us.

I wonder how the Cardinals talk with Manning went.

"So you guys have plenty of room to sign me, Wayne, and Clark right?"

"Uhhh yeah, totally"

How the fug can a team completely purged during the 2010 NFL season going 2-14, finish 6-10 during the 2011 season be in a worse Cap situation than the Super Bowl Champion Giants? The Giants opponents in the Super Bowl with an extremely well paid QB are 16 million plus under the cap.
The Panthers are also the same team to be the first to enjoy a post Rookie Cap #1 pick.

Cap room can be super manipulated. Someone who projected to make $15m in 2012 can be signed on new contract. You can give em signing bonus of $8, make em count $5 million against the cap and install lots of easy achievable incentives which can increase this base $5 to $10 millions. So this player only accounted $5m against cap but end up earning $18m. Win - Win for the team and a player.

ProFootballTalk ‏ @ProFootballTalk
The cap space figures we posted are based on the base cap of $120.6 plus any carryover, adjustments, franchise tenders, RFA tenders.


That does include the savings from last year.

Because it's the nfl salary cap, and it's all pretty fungible.

Giants barely squeaked into the playoffs (leave it to chance), and they have not really signed any big names, or even their own guys.

The Pat's, most top tier FA looking for a ring would take a ridiculous pay cut to play in hopes of winning a SB with them, but fail to realize Pats are 3-0 during spy gate, and 0-2 after.

IMO,

Smitty, Wharton, Gamble, and Jordan Gross account for like 50% of our cap room. We will extend Smitty and Gamble, maybe even Wharton. This will save us close to $30-$40m.
