I am sorry if this was already posted or if it is common knowledge, but I just found out today we are about $35.56 million under the cap (3rd highest). We also have 48 players under contract, which could be good or bad.

I think this is great news for us and leaves Ireland and Parcells a lot of room to make moves.

I saw that a few days ago. I'm not a Capologist, but I'm guessing that if we let some overpriced people go there could be cap ramifications. So I don't know if that number is going to go up or down if any of the payments are accelerated to this year.

we got big bucks to spend on the draft ... we'll have enough to sign maybe 2 starters, nothing more...

I'm thought a lot of other "sources" have said we're closer to 25mil but after cuts we'd be closer to 30-35 mil. i.e. M.booker 4millionish with no cap penalty. I hope your right because we'd be in great shape to add a lot of solid players and maybe a top ender as well.

would you choose us over the Chargers if you were a FA?

The rookie cap is not counted this year. There is relief for rookie signings.

would depend on the FA and if they plan on starting or not...the Chargers dont have a lot of open spots on the roster...if your an older vet looking to tag along for a playoff run its an easy answer but Miami is just as nice as far as places to live and its also got much better tax policies...and a lot of open spots for starters.

Maybe, maybe not, but I wouldn't bet against Parcells since he took most of the wizards with him from Dallas that helped him turn the 'Pokes around. He's not on the ten year plan; we all know he doesn't stay in one place too long, so if I was a FA I'd figure the Fins to be no worse than 8-8 by 2009 with a roster full of young talent like in Dallas. Yeah, I'd want to be a part of that.

Did you read the article on PFT stating that Rivers played the game against the Patriots without an ACL? They expect him back in six months, but what if he's never the same? If SD has to look for another QB that could set them back. Look what not having a QB has done to us. One way or the other we're going to have a good QB... Ireland seems determined.

Looking at SD as being the preferred choice because they just played in the AFCCG is one way to think about it. You know what has kind of surprised me is the amount of Dallas coaches who are following Parcells and Ireland over to Miami. These guys WANT to be around a Parcells driven football program. I would think there would be an awful lot of players with the same mindset.

good we need to pick up an Olineman and a DB through free agency then go Dline in the draft cuz like it or not we are real old at Dline. And i'm still for drafting Trae Williams from South Florida in the second rd of the draft.

Thanks for the link.

What about WAS? Will they be able to field a competitive team in 2008? :lol:

I say our F.O. should monitor that situation and grab the best players WAS has to cut among other things.

Thank you Randy Mueller......

HERESY!:D

Our record stunk, Mueller and Cam did their best work for the Dolphins off of the field....Porter is arguable, right now he is our best LB though...

Booker was going to make 4.3 mil and Shelton 3 million heck Chambers was slated to pull in almost 8 million next year...

The Ravens and Redskins have Cap problems, with the Ravens having a few good players coming up for FA this year.

thats because the $35.5mil is "current" not counting the roster bonuses coming to players like joey porter, jason allen, and a few others. so it will be about $25mil after the roster bonuses.

but m booker will be cut as may probably be zach thomas. that will clear another $10mil. so we can still 'end up' at $35.5mil.

Ok thanks for this info man .... i think booker is gone and there is going to be a big name signed on offense . zack thomas will be discussed a lot , i hope he stays , but he is a salary concern and his health and age do matter now . i like what i see .....there is room for at least 2 very good players signed via FA .

i like samuels as much as anyone (ucf alum), but i think hes going to want to much money for what hes worth (see nate clements), unless your champ bailey, i dont agree with paying secondary players big salaries, you can get a great secondary by going through the draft and having a good defensive scheme.

Yeah, the key is to get young players on their way up not older veterans:

1. Jared Allen, DE (25 Years Old)
2. Max Starx, OT (25 Years Old)
3. Rex Hadnot, OG (25 Years Old) - Our own.
4. Michael Lehan, CB (26 Years Old) - Our own

etc.

I think Asante Samuel will try to stay with New England to make up for that 18-1 season. Also, Michael Turner is a career back up. We can draft a rookie out of this running back heavy class to do what he does. Faneca wouldn't be bad.
