Here's a screen cap of a graphic of teams with salary cap messes & also some under the cap. No Dolphins -- I thought we were supposed to clear like $ 25 million in cap space for FA's and rookies, what happened ?

we havent cut the bad contracts yet and we havent garaunteed/extended taylor, and thomas yet, but we will end up somewhere near 20 million. also espn insider has a good article who will like be cut and if the fins cut those players we would be really good cap wise.

We havent made our cuts yet. It will be different when Jones, Gus, Madison, Bowens, etc are gone.

Not 25 million, but around 17 I think.

We havent released anyone yet...coming soon....but once the cuts occur, or the restructures occur we will sit somewhere between $13 to $16 under. Could be as much as the low $20's under.

We got to cut the players first. That should start to happen sometime next week.

Yea, I saw that too yesterday and I didn't know why the Fins were absent from that list.

Because Ricky's contract for the next two years is for the league minimum.

isnt that just the case with us? if he were traded he could negotiate a better contract.. assuming the phins were compensated for Rickys debt.. no?

Just looked at our salary cap situation. I agree, after cuts and a couple restructures, we will be $ 15 to $20 Million under. Enough to land a couple of top FA's. Brees 1st and foremost. But without a CBA it makes Free Agency a little harder.

We will be OK.
I never realized how great the Cards situation is capwise. They should make a big run at Edge/Alexander/Jamal Lewis. If they play this right they might become something big. They have a bunch of young offensive talent.

Our cuts will probably happen sometime early next week(I think Tuesday).

That was an extreme option to make 25 million available. Including moving JT, Carter, Booker...basicly around 15 players turning 29 in 2006 or older. Not realistic, but I guess around .0000001% possible.

Their cap # is their reason for wanting Ricky.

Like everyone has said, we haven't made any cuts or restructures yet, but the CBA situation really affects what we can do with any amount we are under the cap....

The ability to sign big names, even if we are 25 mil under will be hampered tremendously by the future cap years...
