    That $17 million figure was first reported by the Miami Herald 10/08/03 and includes :

    Between incentives and the tenders for restricted free agents and exclusive-rights players, the Dolphins are expected to be about $17 million over the cap going into the offseason.
    Not all the RFA and ERFA are going to be tendered. Not to mention offers are not charged to the cap til offered.

    Hey Muck one question. Where you have listed each player's savings if cut. Does it include the dead cap.

    For example when Griese is cut is his cap savings $6,272,000 or is it 5,772,000(the savings minus the dead cap, or did you already include that)?

    Go to the Salary Cap Forum and read Clump's post. That should do the trick. He will add more and more and will have a salary cap article in the next few days as well.

    As for the cap chart, I only design and maintain the page/enter the data. Clumpy comes up with all the numbers and knows the rules and details. I honestly don't know alot about the cap and how it works. Really don't have that much interest in learning either. I hate math and numbers.

    As long as we have the final info (the figures themselves), I'm happy.

    ESPN mentioned that four players take up half our cap, with numbers ranging from 7.8 to 8.3 against the cap. I think it was Thomas, Surtain, Madison, and Taylor, and they hinted that it was probable that one of them (they thought Madison) would be sacrificed.

    Is this correct according to the numbers you've got?

    Yes, I would.

    Those 4 together account for 41% per my numbers. Add in Fiedler and you have 50% of the projected cap tied up in 5 players

    Restructuring Bowens,DT,Seau,Mare,and Knight!!...Cutting Perry,Ruddy,JM,Fiedler and Griese!!

    Resigning CC and Surtain to long term contracts will save us money now too!!

    Madison should be 1 of 3 thing....Cutting him will cost 1.8 this year and I believe 2.3 next year so thats a possibility.Restructure him and keep or trade him for a 2nd or late 1st.

    PS- Get rid of the thought of Peyton. Isn't going to happen.
    Incorrect. Zach just signed a new deal last year, there is no way we ask him to take a pay cut.

    Not to mention that his play doesn't warrant a paycut. Thomas will also be a better candidate to restructure in 05 or 06 when his salary goes up. Everyone is talking about Madison because his base salary is $6.3 million. Zach's base salary for 2004 is $2.845 million.

    Rosenhaus did an excellent job with Zach's contract. Plenty of up front money with realistic base salaries unless his performance starts to drop off drastically.

    I don't think they will ask Jason Taylor to take a pay cut either. He may be asked to restructure his contract.

    When players are asked to take a pay cut you have to be ready to tell them they will be released if they don't agree. Last year McKnight was asked to take a pay cut and he refused.
