$12.5 million signing bonus?!  Imagine how much Greg Hardy is asking for?  now wonder we haven't agreed to a long term deal with Kraken yet.

After Arron Rogers deal now this..kiss BJ Raji goodbye GB.. Clay Matthews too.

It still inflates Captian's cap figure unfortunately...but Cap is not a number 1 guy or has the cvg skills Shields has.

Id love to see what Talib gets..im sure NE was thinking a whole lot less than this.

Just like an increase in the Federal minimum wage, an increase in the salary cap doesn't mean anything to a cash strapped team. All the teams are getting the same increase and the median value of the whole still has to be spread amongst 53 players. Until our current contracts are under control we are not able to compete for top tier free agents with salary cap increase monies.

Captain is gonna get 5 years $25 million from someone..........not us.

 

Feel sorry for whoever pays him that kind of money. He's grossly overrated

...but Cap is not a number 1 guy. . .

As much as i do agree and as much as we may think he's not a number one, Cap is still better than about 3/4's of the starters in his position currently. And until someone out plays him on whatever team he ends up with he will still be considered a number 1.
