    Signing Our Own In FA Will Leave Us Lots Of Cap Space

    I am very surprised that Omar, and other Dolphin media do not know, or bother to research, cap info before writing about it, especially for next year. They have been writing that Phans should not get excited about having $40-50M in cap space next off season because if we sign our own players, the money will be gone, based on Long getting $10-15M, Smith getting up to $10M a year, etc, etc.

    This is simply not true. In most cases, the average of what any player signs for is entirely different than what the cap hit will be in the first or following years. This does not apply to players franchised and one year deals.

    For a VG example, let's take a look at the Dansby deal. Many fans are up in arms because He costs the team $13.8M this year in cap space. How the hell is he worth that? He isn't.

    However, he did not get that money every year. Big difference if we look closer at the contract, and cap hits, from 2010, when the deal was done. Dansby got an $11.6M signing bonus on his 5 year deal. The cap hit is split up over the term of the contract. So, he costs $2.3M each year, which is added to his yearly salary.

    In 2010, his salary was $4.8M. Add that to the $2.3 (pro-rated bonus), and he had a cap number of $7.1M.

    In 2011, his salary was $2.7M, a $5M cap hit.

    In 2012, his salary is $8.8M, a $13.8 cap hit.

    In 2013, his salary will be $6M, an $8.3 cap hit.

    In 2014, his salary will be $9M, which he unlikely will ever see. That last year will likely be renegotiated, or he will be cut or traded.

    There are MANY other examples I can list. So, don't buy in to what the media is saying, as it is no more than half truths. JMO, based on fact.

    The Cap game is a balancing act and lots of planning for the future. We can sign all these guys and maybe one or two FAs if we choose with great planning around the cap. We have some toher guys coming up next year as well that will need to be resigned as well. That is why back loading is popular is you can cut players and lose alot of the salary they would earn like Dansby. But knowing the growth of the cap and giving Long and Smith big first year contracts will give them smaller ones in the years after if that is the way they choose to go. Any good accountant should and could make this work.
    Let's go Miami!!!!

    Youre talking about the same clowns who couldnt do the simple research that took me 30 min to do in order to discover that David Garrard was a fraud, who planned to scam the franchise out of a million dollar signing bonus, with no intentions of ever playing a down of football.

    I've never heard this, but it is intriguing. Care to go into detail?

    All he has is flat out conjecture and weird made up ****. He's a step away from claiming David Garrard was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

    Damn, I never even thought of that. Perhaps I should look into it. I wouldnt put it past David Garrard.

    I have yet to see ONE SHREAD of evidence that would suggest David Garrard was inocent of any wrong doing in 9/11. And to the best of my knowledge he has yet to ever come out publically and deny being fully responsible for the whole thing.

    He's also never gone on record saying he doesn't eat babies. I find that morally reprehensible.

    Garrard was just a guy trying to make money in the nfl playing the game your irrational rant against the man makes no sense Why would he have no intention of playing a down , your whole rationale is quite silly. Big deal just another guy that didnt make it. I mean he had more to gain by being our starting qb and it appeared early on he was that guy. Please explain how he attempted to scam one dollar out of anybody, he has been a productive qb in this league . i mean why would he want to actually make more money by playing . That tune your playing on garrard is getting downright silly and based in pure fiction that is in your head.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.
