and of that list of top 18 player contracts, Greg Hardy and the bottom 3 are the only ones who were not given a contract by Hurney. Hardy will likely command less money once we hash out the long term deal. I never understood why people thought Hurney was a cap genius because the evidence states otherwise.

Believe Smith's is actually $9m. $3m base + $2m in bonuses for three seasons. That'll be reduced to $5m June 1 though.

Yup. For some reason spotrac didn't calculate the dead money and just kept his cap hit as the $7m it would've been had we kept him.

Steve's cap hit as a June 1st is either 5 or 6 million...
Also Godfrey as a June 1st saves 5 million, similar with Olsen.

 

Yea I'm over the whole June 1st poo tho personally. Take it all on the chin and get it over with in 1 year if you can.

True but Gettleman did do some damage in his own right...His hand was forced but those restructures he did last year to get us under the cap are being paid for now and in some cases will continue into the future.

Best thread of the offseason. Wish I could pie twice. Honestly, surprised we're not still paying Delhomme.

I mentioned something similar in the blame Getts thread, but nobody answered me with anything logical. 

 

Based on these numbers from the OP: 

 

1. For the people complained about losing Mitchell, Capt, Lafell and Gin, how do we pay them with the money we have when we are also having to extend Cam and then Luke? 

 

2. What other options do we have except 1 year deals until we get out of this? 

 

Also please do not bring up loyalty blah blah blah. I want real answers. THanks!

You can see the salaries are over inflated. CJ should realistically make 9 a year not 16.
I think the team has to reboot the salary cap for the next 2-3 seasons to have any flexibility in the future. Uggh.

This is a really nice post. This puts things in perspective as far as the cap goes. I guess the next couple of years is going to be rough...

Anyone who is bellyaching about Gettleman not throwing cash at our mediocre castoffs and/or wishing Hurney was back, needs to look at that OP then get backhand slapped Ike Turner style.

Man that Beason cap hit is ridiculously bad for us. And obviously Gross, Smitty, and Stew and DeAngelo are screwing us over. As much as I don't like G-man right now for cutting Smitty, Hurney clearly fuged him over big time.

And this is why we need someone like Gettleman on that wall for us.... Somebody has to be the ruthless, tightwad, bargain shopper for us. It is amazing to watch everyone freak out over what is shaking out here in free agency before the draft.

How does Gross still count against us if he retired?
