    Think Shaun Alexander and a top notch lineman.....and about three lower level players......

    We also cannot draft a player in the number 2 spot...we have to trade that pick so we CAN take our two studs (Alexander and the big time Lineman)
    Miami does not need to spend big money on a 28 year old RB who has already taken the pounding in the NFL for 5 years.

    Miami does not need him. They need OL, before they need RB.

    We signed Howard until 2008? For what earthly reason?
    This space is reserved for comment after the Draft. At that point, hope will begin.

    I think this was the worst move Spielman ever made. Not even Feeley or Gordon were this bad. Howard is essnetially pushing Pat Surtain out the door. God I wish Ricky would come back and take Reggie Howard with him. Thats the only way we are gettin rid of him for the next 2-3 years.

    I thought the cap was going to be set near 100 grand.

    Its very possible, we were 18 million over the cap last year and reworked/cut/extend enough salaries/contracts to get to 10 million under. We can do it again and resign the core players we need plus be a player in the F/A market.

    1. We release Fiedler before June 1st, there is 5.4 million right off the bat.

    2. Ditto with Thompson, another 1.2 million

    3. We restructure Thomas & Taylor and/or garuntee a part of his salary, there is no telling how much can be shaved there ... perhaps as much as 3 to 4 million ..

    4. Cut Seau and your down another 3.1 million

    5. Surtain could be traded or have his contract restructured, Madison may very well be told again this year to take a big pay cut or be waived ...

    So you see, there is potentially 20 million is available cap room. Not to mention the cap is probably going to jump next year with all the new tv revenue money comming up ... Take heart .. not all is as bad as it seems...

    Hey guys question on the cap page.........

    Sample: Jay Fiedler

    Salary Cap: 5,775,000
    Amoritized Bonuses: $1,344,583
    Other Bonuseses: $1,000,000
    Cap Hit: $8,119,583

    Cap Savings Before 6/1: $5,430,417 (Is this what is removed from the 11 over?)

    Dead Cap Before 6/1: $2,689,166 (Where does this come in?)

    If Miami was over 11 million. What are they over now?

    Gunner,

    I think its manageable. I just dont think its possible when people want to draft a QB with the #2 pick, resign surtain, solve our LT and C needs through FAgency and then sign a high profile RB.

    I think we can EASILY get under the cap, just staying under we will have to draft wisely and sign FA's wisely.

    Madison however, I dont think he will restructure because of a threat this year. He knows we cant cut him, his cap hit would kill us. He restructures because he WANTS to play here and wants to stay here and retire a fin. I dunno about Surtain. I would like him to retire here but ONLY if he takes a paycut.

    Ok cap savings is what we would save by getting rid of the player. Dead cap is the prorated portion of his signing bonus that we would take a cap hit on if we traded him. We are STUCK with the dead cap part of Fiedlers contract. We can save 5.4 mil by cutting him.

    Thanks man....I was not sure if the Cap Savings was subtracted from the Dead Cap.

    Thanks again!!!
