yeah this is about right, it has been up on the salary cap page on finheaven for a little while now. As I am not an expert on the cap though I would love to see someone who knows what they are talking about on here show our cap hit or savings and dead cap weight numbers on some possible cuts that would free up more room not saying they will be, but just for the interest of it (carter, c-pep, mare, booker, big daddy, etc...)

They're re-load in the Draft and go on another run.

Don't doubt Bill Polian.

what are you smoking.... after you subtract the 2 players
you will have 18 million [not counting the rookie pool] appx with 40 players on rooster.
sameul is going to be 14 million siging bonus range , briggs is going be 8 million signing bonus range....then add their salary. so you will have 42 players and not even the 53 for rooster minium....


Colts :Peyton redid his contract and changed his salary to a bonus and hence the colts are around 8 million in cap now.

Only $13.1 million.

The guy is INCORRECT. The Dolphins have $17.8mil. It was posted on KFFL in the beginning of January before that we have $17.8mil.

That article miscalculated.

After all the cuts (Booker $3.1mil, Mckinney $4mil, Anderson $2mil, Harrington $2mil, James $2mil) I have us with near $25mil. And with a few restructures...$30mil.

There will be alot more cap room soon. Harrington, James, Anderson, McKinney, Carter, and Wilkinson should all be cut. Try to trade Booker, Chambers, and Mcmichael. If there are no offers for Booker, cut him. Taylor and Thomas will restructure and Chambers will if he's not traded.

My question is how did we gor from $22mil to $17 mil to $13 mil?
Did Saban steal our $$$?
