    What is the current Salary Cap situation for the RAMs now that Chavous is signed?

    my guesstimation puts chavous at approx. 2.5 to 3.5 against the cap in 2006...

    so shave that off the 16 mil. and the rams are left with
    approx. 13 mil...

    Surely we have to leave enough to sign players we pick up in the draft. I can't see us going for all three of those players. Hopefully we'll get Witherspoon and then a couple of cheaper players

    The Rams had about $17 million in cap space going into free agency. Chavous' 2006 cap charge should be around $3.3 million, which means we're looking at around $13.5 million in cap space left.

    Nick I am not good with this salary cap game.
    Do you have any guess as to how much we need to save for signing the players we draft and backup players? Do all players signed count against the cap even league minimum players. I thought at one time it was only the top so many salaries on the team. Do the practice squad players count? Who all counts?

    Re: Current Salary Cap .........

    I would guess that we should save about $4-5 million to sign rookie players. As for the other stuff, I'm not sure. I know there is something about how only the top xx salaries count against the cap, but I forget the exact number.

    Thank you for your opinion. That means if we have 13.5 mil and we need to save back close to 5 mil we still have about 8.5 mil left for free agency. Hopefully that is enough for Witherspoon, Bart and then what ever fill in the gap players we need.
