  • Build Your Dream Team (with the Cap in Mind)

    What the heck, Im bored. The key is keeping the cap in mind. Meaning, you cant have a ton of guys who are highly paid and 1st round draft picks. Should be interesting to see what we can work with. Here's mine. Now I know theres no way you can know for sure that your team is under the cap, but just give it a try. Im not even sure if this team is under the cap, but I think its fair.


    QB - Tony Romo

    RB - Adrian Peterson

    HBack - Kyle Brady
    LT - Marcus McNeil
    LG - David Diehl
    C - Andre Gurode
    RG - Shaun Andrews
    RT - Kareem McKenzie

    TE - Jason Witten

    WR - Randy Moss
    WR - Marques Colston
    Slot - Patrick Crayton

    Romo is actually cheap for a franchise qb, McNeil is cheap for a LT, Diehl is cheap for a PB caliber Guard, and while money is spent on Gurode and Andrews, their paycheck is not that bad considering the type of money that interior olinemen have been getting recently. Witten is cheap for his caliber TE, Colston is a 7th rounder, and Moss is cheap. Crayton is cheap too. Peterson is money well spent.

    Defense

    LE - Aaron Kampman
    NT - Kelly Gregg
    UT - Kevin Williams
    RE - Justin Tuck

    WILL - Julian Peterson
    MIKE - DeMeco Ryans
    SAM - Michael Boley

    CB - Champ Bailey
    SS - Dawan Landry
    FS - Sean Taylor
    CB - Terrance Newman

    My defense is where more money is spent, particularly in the 2ndary. Kampman, Tuck and Gregg are all underpaid and all studs. Money is spent on Williams on the dline.

    Money is spent on Peterson in the LB core, Ryans is cheap as a 2nd round pick, and Boley the same.

    Like I said, I spent big bucks in the secondary minus Dawan Landry, who's a 5th round pick.

    And with that front, you can put Peterson, Kampman, Tuck and Williams on the dline in the nickel, and blitz Boley if you want, you basically have a very good pass rushing front. Couple that with speedy LBs, and a great secondary, thats a pretty good defense.

    Special Teams:

    KR/PR: Leon Washington (5th round pick)
    Kicker: Stephen Gostkowski (im pretty sure he's cheap)
    Punter: The Immortal Jeff Feagles

      Do you mean Stephen Gostkowski? It might be worth giving Gradkowski a go as a kicker mind you haha.

      Other than that very good write up, I might have a go later.

          I'm pretty damn sure you can't afford all those players. Romo recently restructured his deal, as did Kampman.

          Also, all your cheap players will want a deal within the next two years, and you'll be screwed.

              Even with Romo and Kampman, thats still I think under the cap. Remember alot of those players are getting underpaid. With the current cap figure, it should go under the cap. Maybe slightly over.

              And we're doing it as a one year thing. Its impossible to do it taking the long term ramifications in mind.

                      Kampman signed a 4 year $21 million contract last year before the season. That's still $5mil a year, but for a top DE that's a great deal.

                          I wish profootball-reference.com gave salary figures like baseball-reference.com. Even if they don't give you new numbers, they still give you the salary figure for the last year or current season. It would at least be a place to start when looking at salary figures.

                            WR - Marques Colston
                            Slot - Patrick Crayton

                            Romo is actually cheap for a franchise qb, McNeil is cheap for a LT, Diehl is cheap for a PB caliber Guard, and while money is spent on Gurode and Andrews, their paycheck is not that bad considering the type of money that interior olinemen have been getting recently. Witten is cheap for his caliber TE, Colston is a 7th rounder, and Moss is cheap. Crayton is cheap too. Peterson is money well spent.

                            CB - Terrance Newman

                            My defense is where more money is spent, particularly in the 2ndary. Kampman, Tuck and Gregg are all underpaid and all studs. Money is spent on Williams on the dline.

                            Money is spent on Peterson in the LB core, Ryans is cheap as a 2nd round pick, and Boley the same.

                            Like I said, I spent big bucks in the secondary minus Dawan Landry, who's a 5th round pick.

                            And with that front, you can put Peterson, Kampman, Tuck and Williams on the dline in the nickel, and blitz Boley if you want, you basically have a very good pass rushing front. Couple that with speedy LBs, and a great secondary, thats a pretty good defense.

                            Special Teams:

                            KR/PR: Leon Washington (5th round pick)
                            Kicker: Stephen Gostkowski (im pretty sure he's cheap)
                            Punter: The Immortal Jeff Feagles
                            Just so you know, Gates actually makes less than Witten. Unless you feel that having a more balanced player like Witten is better.
