Cap as of 12/6/12
Enough salary cap talk. Lets throw down some real numbers.
Lets also assume the following rules:
-The salary cap roll over from 2011 is $8.9 million
-The unsed salary cap from the previous year can be rolled over into the next year
-During the regular season, the 53 man active roster and the practice squad players count against the cap
-During the offseason, only the highest 51 players count against the cap.
-If a player is cut mid-season, his entire salary does not count against the cap unles he is a vested veteran (4 or more accrued years) and was active for the 1st regular season game
-If a vested vet is cut mid-season (Legadu Naanee) and is picked up by another team, that team will take on the pro-rated salary cap hit for the rest of the year
-If a player is signed mid-season (Jabar Gaffney), only his pro-rated annual salary counts against our cap
-And this is my own rule: If multiple websites list different contract numbers, always use the highest number reported.
If anyone would like the MS Excel version of this spreadsheet, please PM me.

Added Brandon Fields' contract to 2013. It was an extention that did not change his 2012 contract. It also has a low guarnteed amount of money, but a high ceiling, so I assumed it is heavy on incentives. I'll also assume he is likely to reach those incentives, being that it appears he is headed for his first Pro Bowl this year.
Also corrected Dansby's pro-rated signing bonus, and added Tyrone Culver's salary over the remaining 4 games, and Jason Trusnik's extension. I know we signed a few PS guys, but I'm not splitting hairs for the little guys.
This might be the best Salary cap spreadsheet I have seen to date on this site. I am sticking this thread for you Zounds, awesome job.
Thanks. I think its nice aesthetically, but all of the salary and bonus numbers came from a variety of sources, some of which contradict each other, so its tough to get excact contract numbers. If anyone has additional salary info that is not in the spreadsheet, I welcome them to post here with a link to the source, and I will update the spreadsheet so we can keep a running total.
I know brother, I have searched in the past for cap numbers and they are so obscure sometimes it is 75% factual and 25% speculation. At least your document gets us in the general ballpark and gives a solid well presented platform to work from.

however you want to run it zounds.
Zounds it was pointed out the Brandon Fields re-signed at the start of this season with a contract extension.
Here is a link to some of the details I could find:
Awesome, thanks for the info. I will update Feilds' contract info. I also have a correction to Dansby's pro-rated bonus I need to make. I will try and do it within th next few days.
