    Updated: Rams not over the cap!!!

    Many of the Rams faithful have been excited over the recent free agent moves made by the front office, but there is one problem....we are now over the mandatory salary cap. Now compared to other teams in the league who are several million dollars over the cap, the Rams 100K is laughable but this still means that unless the Rams make a few cuts and/or restructure a few contracts, several of the free agent moves made by the team will not be allowed to take effect. We have until 4pm to "make a deal", do any of you guys have an idea of possible moves the front office will make?

    I think one of our team leader (jackson, bradford, laurneitus, Bartell, Long) should maybe step up and take a small paycut. Although I am no cap expert not sure what really has to be done.

    Re: Rams 100K over the cap!!!

    Releasing any player in the top 51 (the cut-line of where the money actually counts against the cap) will drop us below the cap. Just glancing at salaries, Keith Toston's name sticks out as one who might not make the team. His salary this year is $405,000. I'd also imagine that a WR gets cut sooner or later. There's still some cutting to be done, especially if the team is interested in resigning Goldberg.

    It would be a great gesture if either Jackson or Bradford were to restructure, not just for this year but looking towards the future as the team looks to continue to add pieces to the puzzle, only time will tell. Nevertheless, we have several guys on this team that we all know will not make the team, so the cut options are endless.

    Re: Rams 100K over the cap!!!

    Adam Schefter posted this on his twitter this morning, no mention of the Rams.

    As of this morning, there are five teams over the salary cap: OAK $15.25 mil; PITT $8.5m; DET $7.8m; DALLAS $6.7m: HOUSTON $3.25m.

    Yes I saw that as well. I am guessing somehow the Rams got below the cap between when he first reported it and this morning.

    I hope so still the other teams may have to part ways with some big time names.....things just keep getting interesting this season.

    Re: Rams 100K over the cap!!!

    Jim Thomas is on 101ESPN right now and, while he said the Rams are pretty tapped out in terms of cap room, did not indicate the Rams were actually over the cap. So I wouldn't stress about it.

    Agreed, but would still require a roster twik or 2.

    I believe us releasing Laurent Robinson was the solution to the cap problem.

    The Rams didn't release Robinson; he was a free agent.
