It's NEVER as dire as the idiots around here make it seem year after year.

You'd think they'd learn eventually.

Nope, we're in cap hell and we should bring it up over and over again. Forever.

Does this include our dead money from last year? I know we have some from Wharton and maybe a bit more. Spotrac should list any dead money at the bottom of our team page.

spotrac does have the dead money from last year included. They have also accounted for Kalil's restructure. However they have not adjusted for Nakumara's restructure which saves another 500k.

Assuming the rest of their numbers are correct and factoring Nakumara's lowered cap figure we are sitting at 2.698 million over the cap after using the rollover of 3.6 million from last year.

Well that's some damn good news.

No, no, no, no, no. We are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY over the cap. Like $40 mill over or something like that. And next year is even worse, I think like a billion over.

Great news. While it's nice to imagine us restructuring Gamble, along with Gross, Beason and Williams, to be able to keep #20, I still think it's the best move for us to cut him, pick up a cheap vet FA corner (or draft one with our first two picks) and then have more wiggle room in free agency.

OOOOOHHHH MMMMYYYYYYY GGGGGOOOOOOODDDDD!!!

Your telling me that all the people who's jimmies have been in full on rustle were just over reacting?

Your telling me that our cap situation is nearly solved for this upcoming free agency period almost 2 weeks from the starting line?

What sorcery is this?

Still need about 15 million on top of that for free agency and draft picks

Draft picks will only be $4-5 mil at most, doubt we spend $10 mil in free agency
