Gettleman can sign someone if he wants them bad enough. Draft pick costs don't matter until late summer and even then their cost shouldn't be more than $4 to $5 million. We have $4 in space now and he could easily clear a few million more if desired.

Remember than Flacco's monster deal only carries a cap charge of $6.8 this year, so a lot can be done with little money.

Rookie's will cost 4-5 million. Anderson's cap space that comes avaliable June 1 won't be enough for them.

Right now we have almost 4.....and lost our starting CB, starting nickel CB, both starting DTs and still need at least 1 starting S. We also need a starting RG. Those are just basic needs, not even getting into the type needs like WR that aren't a glaring hole today.

We need more room to function in FA and sign out draft picks.....Gettlemen still has a mess to deal wtih before he signs a name we have heard.

i should trust you over a former GM in Tannenbaum?

no trust no one and think for yourself, I know the numbers because I looked them up myself, and honestly the fact that you are even trying to argue this means you have a total lack of understanding of how a salary cap works.

a team going into the league year must be under the captor that entire league year(march2013-march2014), it doesn't matter what next years numbers(2014-2015) look like only this year. The fact that Denver has been signing big name players like Welker before the draft is all the proof I need that I'm right and you are wrong.

This is the part that is starting to concern me. We cut all of these pieces and still have MINIMAL cap room. It's not looking good for next year just based on this alone. I realize the players have to play and anything can happen. Young players can step up. But man Marty really fuged us.

I heard Clowney was a very very good pass rushing DE, but can he also play WR, DT, FS, CB and RG?

He will be great but pass rushing DE is one position we do not have a need at....

This guy is trying to imply we will have the #1 pick again.

2 times to make a run a FAs.

Now, overpay for the big names AND right before the season starts when teams cut vets in favor of youth the they is ready.

I think a Gross restructure and DWill cut puts us in position to fix out holes right before the season starts.

Look guys, we restructure Gross (which will happen eventually) and we'll be sitting on maybe $8 million or so, and more if they want to get real aggressive. So you sign the free agents you want with that money. Depending on how the contracts are structured, that is at least 2 good players.

After June 1st, cut DWill and we have the space to sign our draft picks.

So where's the problem?

I don't think it's the cap holding us back. I think it is the team philosophy. If there was a guy or two Gettleman really wanted, we would have absolutely no problem signing them.
