    Players earned bonuses based on winning games......these are NLTBE incentives...most of them count on the following yrs cap......Miami's adjusted salary cap will be $9-10 million LOWER than the league wide unadjusted salary cap.

    21.9 over according to Clayton. Tell me he is mistaken.

    They're both saying pretty much the same thing.

    Some players had bonuses for a winning 2005 season in their contracts. Since we had finished 4-12 in 2004, these bonuses were considered Not-Likely-To-Be-Earned (NLTBE) incentives and were not counted on the 2005 cap. Since we finished 9-7, those bonuses kicked in and were brought forward as a negative adjustment on our 2006 cap.

    Additionally, since we're coming off a 9-7 2005, any player with a similar bonus this year would have it considered Likely-To-Be-Earned (LTBE) and have it count against the cap as well. However, that would be because it was added to their salary.

    Unadjusted Leaguewide Cap Limit ($95 mill.)
    - previous year's NLTBE incentives that were met ($9+ mill.)
    + previous year's LTBE incentives that were missed ($?)

    Adjusted Cap Limit ($85-86 million)

    This is a reduction in the amount of cap money we're allowed to spend. This is not cap relief.

    According to ESPN, we should be under the cap with the cuts we just made.

    OK, that makes sense now
