People freak out about the Salary Cap EVERY YEAR, it's dumber and dumber the longer it goes.

And every year we hardly sign any worthwhile free agents. The franchise manages to get under because it does so little to improve the team.

The reality is that if you are over 15 and we get the 3.5 from this year we are now at 11.5. Gross' cap hit in 2013 is 11.7 million. If we cut him as a June 1st cut we save 9.7 million since the 4 million left in guaranteed money will be paid out in 2 years. So honestly we cut one player and we are less than 2 million from erasing the cap deficit. And at training camp next year he will turn 33. He is not what he used to be. The cap is not the huge problem people think it is. Plus the money for the drafted players isn't included in the 120 million cap number but is set aside in a separate fund, IIRC.


Exactly. Do something with Gamble and now we're at -$6 million (and we really didn't miss him this year). Throw in DWill as a June 1 cut, and now we're at nearly -$10 million. And there are other things we could do as well.

Granted, we would have to go LT in the draft to move Gross, but the point is, we will find a way to get under the cap and have a little to play with.

As to the rookie pool, there is a lot of misinformation out there. Each team is assigned a number they can use to sign their rookies. All that rookie pool does is put a limit on how much you can spend on their contracts. Until they sign their contracts, they are counted at the rookie minimum. However, when all is said and done, they are just like every other player and must fit into the same cap.

Picking as late as we are and with no 3rd, it's not going to consume much of our cap to sign draft picks.

Nortman did OK for a rook. People that bash him seriously don't know football.

why do you think he got benched then?

He's talking about Brad Nortman, the punter, not Josh Norman, the corner.
