We're ok, no reason to panic.

No significant rookie deal will be signed before late July giving us time to make some moves post June 1st. We only have to clear extra cap room now if there is a targeted free agent to chase. We could cut or trade Gamble and re-do Gross reasonably and have plenty to go after whatever FA we want.

Whats going to be diffrent this year than from past years where we signed no FAs and had to build threw the draft? This is year one of the cut. Next year will be the same and then maybe we will have enough money left over from resigning Cam to build a team.

It's funny how everyone freaks out about our cap situation every year.

Does that include the rookie contracts?

Nah. We have to be under the cap with our current roster (top 51) by next week.

Then we will also have to be under again when the final roster is set in August.


That isn't how rookie contracts work. Rookie wages come from a separate pool of money that is different from the wages that go against the salary cap.

i think it's probably safe to assume that they are with him and a few others as well. with gamble and beason the goal on our part would probably be to scrap and re-write the contracts, but i don't see that being successful with gamble.

last resort would be cutting him, but if their goal is to have $8-11mil in cap space (which is the number i think i remember being the target) it would either have to be a significant restructure/re-done contract or just releasing him. he's got to know that it's going to be a flooded market with talent and not much cap money to go around for any team that his best chance is to work something out here.

I'm not understanding the whole wont get done with Gamble mentality, from my current understanding I think we can keep Gamble if we restructure/extend his contract. He's is set to make $10.9 million next season, we can cut him and save $7.9m and we could theoretically tell him hey we just don't have the cap space to keep you, we can cut you and you will only get $3m or you can restructure and get $4.5m this season all guaranteed. that would save us 6.5m putting us under the cap by $3m with Beason and Gross still to go in renegotiations.

the fact that Gamble is still on the team and we have not cut him yet means the Panthers are trying to restructure Gamble to keep him.

What's worse, being in our situation, or Cleveland's, which refuses to field a winning team with that much space?

It's off season. Nothing else to do.

Every year.

Phase 1: Complain about why we lost game/season because of coach/player/etc.

Phase 2: Freak out about the cap that only a few of us truly understand.

Phase 3: Talk about draft and who we can get to replace overpriced vet we just cut because we think we understand how the cap works.

Phase 4: Watch team get under the cap by a few million then talk about what free agent we can get.

Phase 5: Complain about free agent we didn't pursue even though he is paid 3 times the amount we were able to pay. Then do Phase 3 again.

I was thinking about 2013 rookies not 2012.

But either way your statement is not correct either for last year or prospective rookies.

Here is how it works.


Rule of 51...

http://www.eagles24x...alary-Cap-Works

Once the season starts, however, the entire Cap Numbers of the rookies who make the team must be fit under the team’s overall Cap. The impact of that, though, actually operates to save the team a little bit of Salary Cap space, since the rookies are making the rookie minimum base salary and replacing players on the roster who were making more in base salary.

yeah it's weird... every year we figure out the cap space, add a plethora of quality free agents, put together an excellent championship quality team and field a legitimate title contending roster... I don't know why people are complaining?
