    Re: Cap info graph.

    Two glaring things that I see, if I am reading this right:

    We need to resolve the Turley thing!!

    Ike has got to spread that salary out over the next couple of years!!

    Re: Cap info graph.

    So according to that information we're looking at approximately $37M in cap room if the salary cap increases by the expected 10%? That's taking into account around $10M in bonuses and the $5.82M in dead money for 2006.

    Seems like we'd be in great shape to sign some of the few players that we'd like to bring back and make one or two impact signings.

    Steve Hutchinson anybody?

    Manu...what a waste!!!!!!!

    In the next CBA the owners need to address this dead money for retiring or physically incapable to play cap figures. This dead money should only count as a percentage of the actual figure. This just kills teams when a guy has left the roster for those reasons.

    I think that the dead money impact should stay as it is, otherwise, the chances for abuse are just too extreme. In the nfl, retirement is often just around the corner, especially for the guys due very big money. You cant give the owners an incentive to pay guys big bonuses towards the ends of their careers and then not have the full cap hit if they retire. Injuries are a different issue, but tricky as well. The system isnt perfect, but the tight cap is what makes it an equal playing field for everyone and makes it all the more critical that teams shouldnt throw money around for non core guys.

    if coakley retires, there will be some acceleration on his signing bonus.

    Re: Cap info graph.

    GC, I see your point on retirements. Very true about the possiblity for abuse by the owners. I just believe that retirement due to catstrophic injury is a killer to a team. That clown Turley is really sticking it to us by quitting or having to retire; whichever way you care to interpret his abscence. Just think about how it would impact a team if a few of its marquee players had career ending injuries in the same season and had to retire the next? I would just like to see if a plan in the next CBA would allow for only one injury-related retirement to have the cap impact stretched out over a two year period; only one at a time. That is all. It is just an option that I would like to see happen. How you determine if a retirement is injury-related is up to the NFL/NFLPA. However, it needs to be obvious to avoid abuse. Just a thought...

    Re: Cap info graph.

    Interesting point on the injury exemption to the cap. I think its a great idea in concept, my fear is the execution. What constitutes a career ending injury? Who is going to evaluate that? Everyone of these guys have injuries at some point, so who is to say what is truly career ending. Third party medical opinions? Insurance implications?

    I believe that injuries are part of the game and part of dealing with the cap is blind luck. The risk of injury and its cap impact is the same for all teams. Anyone can get hurt at any time and that is part of the risk. On the other hand, if someone goes out and signs a player that already has an injury problem, and that player gets hurt again and has to retire, why should that team get a break? injury history and risk (by age, position etc) is factored into the market price that teams pay for these guys.

    Bottom line is that the hard cap, while certainly not fair in every instance, minimizes the risk of abuse. If you are going to do everything you can to "win now" that is the choice afranchise can make, but you have to be prepared to pay the piper later. There is no doubt in my mind that if a number of these owners are given an inch in terms of loopholes in the cap, they will take it and exploit the system.
