    21 MIL is good, but not GREAT ... subtract out at least 5 MIL for the draft picks and that leaves ~ 16 MIL ...

    Exactly how many 'high' priced signings do we think that will bring in ... probably about 2 .... or about 4 X tier 2 type players ... reason being is that we have about 15-20 spots to fill with expiring contracts, etc ..... of course, these figures don't include other cost cutting mechanisms like cutting players with existing contracts.

    Good news considering where we have been .... but it is NOT our panacea.

    If I were the front office, my focus right now, would be on trimming some fat through contract re-negotiations and looking at who needs to be let go. It's time for this team to go through some big changes.

    I agree with not gettin too hyped up. I remember getting really excited about this season when we signed Culpepper.

    Another thing to consider about that $21 million under figure: Where are all the other teams? If the majority of them are close to the cap, us being $21 million under means a lot. But if most teams are in the ballpark of where we are, there's going to be a lot more money chasing the same number of players, which means that the guys we want are going to cost a lot more than if we're one of a handful of active teams in free agency.
