    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...

    Thank you; this is what I've been saying, guys.

    This (2005) is also the year to bite the bullet and eat some cap hits on guys that won't be around in a couple of years anyway, make big Money and will be useless to us during the next 2-3 rebuilding years: Zach & Madison. Trade them, get value for them now while they have value, replace them with cap-friendly rookie contracts and we're building a foundation for the future.

    Really?? As of August 4th, we were about $10.5 million under for 2004. What are we now, like $6 million?? And with Ricky we'd be at what, $2.5 million??

    I'll take my gloom and doom with sprinkles.

    Wow... And I thought ESPN NFL 2K5's Miami Salary Cap problems were tough... I think we'll need to drop what we can, Fielder, Thompson, Seau, you know the list and we'll more than likely have to trade down, take a top notch RB (Cadalliac) or something, we can't afford the "future" quarterback as some may call Leinhart or Rodgers, hopefully we'll get Childress... He'll change the offense to his philosophy and Feeley will play better because of that... We can only hope for the last part...

    Trade (possible) or release (not likely) results in same thing since he only has one season remaining. Miami would have dead cap of $2.53 million on 2005 cap but would save $5.85 million

    What moves do you forsee in your chrystal ball clump meister?

    Chambers bonus being guaranteed saves how much (seems like his contract was structured that way for this reason)? What else do you see as essential moves?
    Looking forward to seeing an offensive specialist as head coach

    Not sure many guys 'll take that kind of salary cut.

    I'm working on this. In the coming days I will start posting what I would do.

    Chambers: Yes, I believe Miami will just guarantee his $5 million roster bonus over the remaining 5 yrs and it will save $4 million on 2005
