    According to PFT Miami is this much under the cap

    Miami Dolphins: $13.19 million.

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...s-of-april-22/

    That's almost 3 million more than most amatuer capologists...to include my own unofficial count...I'm not sure how they got that number..

    Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald have them 13 million under...and his article on the subject.

    Actually if the Dolphins traded Ronnie Brown or Ricky Williams, they would have plenty to give Peppers a new multi year contract and still have room for emergencies and a FA at league minimum.

    HMMM..............

    What is the Dolphins rookie pool this year????????

    I see what you're saying, but why would Carolina want to trade for RB or RW when they have Jonathon Stewart and DeAngelo Williams?

    I am very happy with this amount. Not only does it allow us to be able to sign a free agent who is cut after our rookies are signed, but it also allows us to make a potential draft day trade for players like we did last year for Fasano and Ayodele.

    It also allows us to sign players that will be FA's next year like RB and Fasano.

    we need that money to get our own guys under contract first....after that we can look around to see who's there....and we'll need plenty of money for 9 picks as well.

    Ozzy rules!!

    It seems like there is so much flexibility in the cap that is almost meaningless how much space they say your team has. NFL GM's use fuzzier math then economists use to talk about the economy.

    Obviously some of those teams are going to have to cut players to sign their rookies, or restructure current contracts. Hopefully we can make a pickup or two when cuts come.

    I would think it's closer to 4-5 million based on the fact we're picking at the 25th spot, we had 6+ mill last year when we were at number 1..I don't think we get that much down at 25..
