Nolan had a sick Mark Roman fetish. He loved that guy. I have no idea why. He even made him the defensive headset guy to start the season before giving it to PWillie. Just plain stupid love for such a terrible player. Made no sense.
But then they gave it back to Roman because Willis said it was distracting him while he was trying to get real on some fools.
Now that I think about it, I've seen the Bucs reported at around $52 million, and the Broncos reported at $41 million. Maybe askthecommish is taking into account the signings of draft picks... That would explain the discrepancy about the Lions, Bucs, and Broncos....
He also says the Niners cap space is about $12 million, not $26 million.
No, he says it's $12M at the moment and will be between $20-30M when free agency starts because each year the cap grows and the FO worked contracts out so that we had even more space, like the aforementioned clause in Donald Strickland's contract.
The Vikings actually have 28 Million under the cap not 20.
The Vikings’ salary-cap situation
February 10th, 2009 – 1:30 PM by Judd Zulgad
And you thought the NFL season just finished. Actually, the fun is just starting.
The scouting combine is next week and on Feb. 27 free agency will kickoff. While the free-agent crop might make it unlikely the Vikings will spend like they did a year ago, the salary-cap shouldn’t be an issue. The Vikings are currently about $28 million under the $123 million cap for the 2009 season.
That is down slightly from last season when the Vikings entered free agency with more than $30 million in cap space. Minnesota’s cap room for this year could grow depending on any moves made before the free agency period begins that could clear more space.
Vikings | Yankees | Magic | Sabres | Chelsea FC | Alabama | St. Bonaventure
Again, for people claiming their team has a few extra $M more than reported here, the "salary cap" being a static figure is a myth - LTBE incentives makes the projected $123M cap actually vary from team to team with cap credits. The exact cap room numbers will vary a lot depending on what the source factors in. Realistically it won't matter much for 90% of teams what the exact amount is as they won't be spending anywhere near it.
31 million in cap and we're lowballing the hell out of Haynesworth. It's gonna be a sad day when he walks... :(
That's just how contract talks start. Got to know the limits, both ways. Team lowballs, agent throws out a stupid high set of numbers. If they can find a middle ground before the clock runs out, they have a deal.
Personally, I won't be excited either way. One way we're letting our best player go, the other way we're paying top defensive player money to a guy who hasn't played a full season yet in his career, who has had more sacks in his 2 contract years than every year before that combined. By resigning Haynesworth, we're also not generally getting better as a team - just avoiding getting worse. Who knows, maybe shifting slightly away from defense and focusing a bit more on offense and hence balancing the team is what the Titans need. It's an awfully big risk either way.
