so if these cheap signings wont affect the cap does that mean we could still sign a player for something like 2 year 6 mil. or something like that?
Short answer, no.
That website has a line thru the non top 51 cap hits. Looks like
We have several players only making 555k and some those will drop into the less than top 51 salaries once they formally put the salaries of Dwan, Mitchell and Ginn Jr. up.
Without them updating those last 3 cap hits you'll see that the 52nd highest cap hit is $529,750 (this and the ones less than it don't count..I know captain obvious just trying to be clear).
