    That column accounts for signing bonus amortization. When a player signs a long term deal, the signing bonus is spread out over the length of the deal (limit of 5 yrs starting in 2005). If the player is released after 6/1, then only one yr of bonus counts on 2005 and ALL remaining yrs count on 2006.

    In Freeman's case, it's assumed that the $300,000 roster bonus is due prior to 6/1 and is paid, thus if he's released after 6/1, it counts on the 2005 cap as dead cap.

    He has to be cut given his injury history, the size of his cap #, the somewhat desparate need Miami has to get under the cap, his off-field problems, etc. And, he doesn't have his security blanket in Jerry Sullivan anymore.

    I also noted this in another post, but what do you think about the Herald article that has the Dolphins cap # at $102 Million (according to the NFLPA)?

But that's still a big discrepancy. They get their estimates from the NFL Players Association.

    This is the site:

    Actually Clumpy's right and the Herald's wrong. NFL teams only count the top 51 cap hits from the beginning of free agency (3/1) to opening day. Currently for the Dolphins after the top 51...11 players at 305,000 and 7 players at 230,000. Clumpy has those players listed but doesn't have them counting against the cap, which they don't.
    This allows teams to bring all those extra guys into camp during the preseason.

    Yup he's got it.

    Plus Chambers #'s can be manipulated via a few tricks to save some dough if we need it for an FA signing.

    Did you read the Herald article? They have the Chambers issue in there as well. It really is not the issue - if the Herald is correct, then their analysis (which includes the Chambers manipulation) only gets the fins under by about $2 million - enough to handle the draft, but not much if at all for free agency.

    I know that - it's been pretty common knowledge for a few years - in fact, I've read that in the Herald several times. The question is - how do you know the Herald is counting those players against the cap - since no one does? And, I don't see the NFLPA doing this either - since it's a non-factor as far as the league rules are concerned.

    It may be true, and the numbers roughly work out - but do you have evidence that this is what the Herald has done or is it an assumption?
