This is for all those cap savvy people out there. Also, it seems Spielman does a great job in getting players at affordable prices, would you agree?

Well, yeah, I suppose. I believe we have the cheapest OL in the NFL, right? Rick saved a TON of money when he rebuilt it this offseason. Lots of cheap vets and even cheaper drafted players...

... if ONLY they were ANY GOOD. :eek:

McMichael still has one more year on his contract after this season so if he doesn't get his extension in the offseason he still has time to get one before his contract expires. However, I think we will sign him long-term next July.

Surtain is probably gone IMO. It would be way to much money spent in one place and we have a capable replacment in Poole.

I am sure we will be able to make some salary cap moves not only to sign a FA RB, but some other FAs that will help us.

Poole isnt a capable replacement for Surtain... to even say such a thing is moronic. Hes a rookie who is still unproven... we hear people saying he was a steal in the 4th but until he proves it hes NOT.

Surtain took a big cut in salary when he got his last entention.... i beleive he will take what is given to him unless he wants out of miami... which could be possible after this season. I still think Madison will be the one gone not Surtain. Why get rid of a 28 year old corner who is THE best shut-down corner in the AFC?

Dont expect us to sign too many FA since we have some decent draft picks. I only see us signing one major FA primarilly an OL or a RB. It all depends on which big names are available.

But if any FAs: OL, RB, DT

That is something a lot of people are forgetting. Surtain did take a contract that was below his value last time he signed an extension.

Ok, Poole is no Surtain, but he is showing great promise and would probably be starting for most teams next year. Also, Surtain is good enough to possibly get us an additional 1st round pick that we can use on the future. Don't get me wrong, I love having Surtain on this team, but you have to look towards the future and financially I don't see him in the plans.

No Not Right Now, We Are 12mil Over The Cap, And You Would Want To Draft A Running Back For The Future, Rather Tan Geta Guy Who Already Have A Cap Number, That's Going To Restrictyou From Rebuilding Your Team Throug The Draft.
