IMO, thats why you are seeing a discrepency. Also, a lot of people dont have all the info on signing bonuses exactly correct for all our draft picks. That also isnt something thats been formally announced.
Add up those guessworks, and even 3 million off is a good guess.
Not good news for Wilford and J. Allen even after rookie pool plus the 2-3 million kept in reserve for practice squad, injuries, etc. Think they've got around 6 million in accelerated bonus money to count against the cap if cut before June 1rst to add to their 3 million already on the books this year.
Although a big signing like JT could mean we won't be able to cut one or both of them until after June 1rst.
After redoing some numbers on my own board and adjusting the top 51.. I was a little closer to the 13.2 mil... but Irland kind of backed me up in a recent article where he denied haven't the cap space that's been widely reported.. I know he's now saying this after we've extended both Allen and Polite, so that may make a difference that he can then deny the reports, but prior to Allen and Polite.. I just didn't have 13 mi.. even with the additional 947K to the cap..
