Is it? I can't tell. Did it increase recently due the the $130M rumor?

Yeah it did. Both sites were sitting with the projected 126M number, now that it's said to be around 130, they put those numbers in. 11.9M cap is where we stand (this is roll over, dead money and new 130 ceiling already calculate in; for those who keep thinking numbers are being left out)

Yeah. It was just over $8M before the projection. Now that is is raised to $130, it's now $11.9

Overthecap and spotrac don't have direct access to contacts and are notorious for being wrong. Spotrac even says right on their site "Our numbers do not reflect the actual real-time cap numbers provided through the NFLPA, rather an estimation based on the team's current contracts.." which is why I was going by the official NFLPA site.

 

In any event this was just posted to list a few easy painless ways to add cap space, not argue over which random website might have the correct cap number when nothing official has been released. I'll edit the OP and let you guys argue over that amongst yourselves.

No one's here to argue, it's an open discussion. Yes, NFLPA has the official numbers, but they haven't put up new numbers for 2014 yet. 

 

We all use the same numbers from the same 2 sites to discuss what moves could make us money (like you have in this post). Just don't use them as a source and talk about how wrong the sites can be at the same time. 

 

All of their math is clear at the bottom of the page. Cap Ceiling + carry over - top 51 contracts - dead money = Available cap. It's all there.

OP is 100% right. His math is spot on. Naysayers need a calculator.

i dont see extending Olsen or hoping CJ taking a cut/restructure as being very easy.  all his money is guaranteed

^^^ a restructure is beneficial to the player in every way, there's no reason for them to not do it

i wouldn't mind keeping johnson but also backloading hardy's contract so that by the time it gets significantly high we'll be out of CJ's contract and can re-sign him to a cap-friendly veteran deal (or move on from him if we've drafted someone else at that point.)

 

i know a lot of you have moved on from hardy, and i recognize that if he wants a massive payday there's not a very big chance of him getting it here, but we NEED top-tier pass rushers. superbowl-winning teams have them in spades. if we end up not re-signing him i wouldn't be surprised at all to see a surprising amount of priority put on finding a replacement in FA and the draft.
