    Which would help us the most deal or no deal?

    We are in decent cap shape without the deal. There are several teams that will have to purge some of their players to get under the cap. This would probably reduce the price of all the free agents out there. There are about four teams with twice the cap space we have. This means that they would be able to sign several of the high profile players.

    With a new deal that might add an extra 10 mil there would be less teams purging players. There would be fewer free agents and all the teams would have more money to spend. This would help drive up the cost of the players available. We would have about twice as much money we could spend on free agents. But there would be fewer free agents and they would cost more. If Bruce declines to restructure we still may decide to keep him with the excess cap space.

    Will a deal help the Rams or hurt the Rams?

    It depends on how you look at it. In the short term, no deal helps the Rams for various reasons you mentioned. In the long term, a deal would help the entire NFL, but probably specifically the Rams because I'm not sure this is an organization that would throw big money through the air to land the best free agents during an uncapped 2007. Furthermore, no deal could mean labor strikes and work stoppage in the future, and nobody wants that.

    A deal solidifies the future. What's good for the NFL is good for the Rams.

    agreed, at least for this year, no deal would be good for the rams but a stoppage in the future is horrible.
    SO...no deal for now, but the deal can be done maybe next offseason!!!
