Maybe also get some DE that can rush the QB or another DT cause Ferggie is getting up there in age.
    Cleveland's asking price would probably be too high

    I'd give Asomugha whatever he wants. The guy takes out the opponents #1 guy no matter who he is.

    CAN THAT BE RIGHT? It seems ASTRONOMIMICAL

    Thats my cap sheet, and you bet its right! We have a ton of dead cap coming off the books. I have my prelim 2009 sheet started and we are 30+ million under the cap. Dont forget, as players stay under contract, their salary goes up so it wont be quite 40 million.
    We have about 7 million in dead cap because of JT, McCown, Feely, Lehan, Peelle, and Hagan.

    Remember, Crowder, Carey, Goodman, Hill, Bell are all free agents along with Crocker and Moses. All those contracts are gone.

    Add it all up and its about 30 million. Figure Holliday and Wilford are potential cuts, and we are looking at 35 million under the cap. We can pretty much sign whoever we want, but I think we stay away from the extreme 10+ million a year high priced free agents.

    cant wait for the offseason to fully start. But I would not want B.Edwards in a dolphins uniform people used to hate on chambers and I feel like edwards is a carbon copy of chambers. He drops the ball way to much.

    Again, thats my "prelim" cap sheet for 2009. See earlier post.

    If you read the preface on the salary cap I wrote on that website, I currently have 43 contracts on the cap page. That 30.9 million only takes 43 contracts into account. I estimated the 2009 cap to be 123 million. Cap's take the top 51 contracts into count. Usually, the last few top contracts to be counted against the top 51 are minimum salary contracts, like rookies or special teams guys or backups.

    I havent accounted for any camp fodder or minor roster signings, which Miami will make a lot of. (When I say fodder or minor contracts, I mean like Anthony Armstrong - 310k, Scorpio Barbers - 310k, Will Billingsley - 310k, Chris Brown - 310k, Joe Cohen - 310k, Lex Hilliard - 310k, Erik Walden - 385k, Matt McChesney - 460k, etc.) I think Miami will make a lot of those minor and camp fodder signings, and releases, and tracking each one of them and updating a minimum contract with another minimum contract is a very tedious job and usually results in no net change on the salary cap.

    For comparison and estimating purposes heading into free agency, if you add 8 contracts (which because I am counting 43 contracts, 8 more are needed for the top 51 rule) at about 500k each (estimated minimum salary of camp fodder contracts), thats another 4 million, which would put us about 26 million under the cap if we counted 51 contracts.

    There have been a few other media outlets which have put us at 24.5 million under the cap, which is pretty close to my estimated 26 million taking the top 51 rule into account.

    Factor in rookie signings and us carrying about 2 million in cap space throughout the season if we needed to make an emergency signing, and we probably have around 20 million to spend in free agency if we wanted to. Thats the number to know.

    I usually update my page 4-5 times a year at every major point during the NFL season so check back for updates.
