No we just don't have any money. We are the most cash strapped team in the NFL. That's what happens when you pay a 2-14 team like they are a 15-1 team.
Although it may be true that at the moment we are still over the cap. Barely. We still have options to not only get under, but far enough under to do some deals. The question becomes, are we a team that players want to play for?
We are going to have some money, but probably not enough to compete with some teams. But, do we need to sign every vet that hits the open market? We are still trying to figure out who we are. So we don't even know who we need.
Redoing a couple of contracts should give us some money to play with. We will just have to be picky on who we throw that money at. Personally, I trust Gettlemen to do what he can to make us better. And I don't believe he will throw money at just any FA. He will pick and choose carefully. It has been proven that bringing in a bunch of FAs does not guarantee anything.
My giddy tells me things are not as dire as most folks believe. So I am going to go with that.
