        Lots of high price players and lots of players looking for similarly high wages=big problem in cap city. Something's going to have to give for the end result to not be a mess (cough San Francisco cough). I'm glad I don't have to do anything about it.

              every year we start out like this and we fix it by late july or early august . we don't have to sign portis this year so that's not mandatory to pay him so take care of the defense first. to keep good players you have to pay for them so i'll wait to see what al wilson gets offered first.

                its shanahan's fault he gives out dumb contracts. mccaffrey makes 4+ at 35 and smith makes 5+ at 33 i think and gardener made 5+ although we may get that back.
                dont let him pull dat move on ya, dont let him pull that move.......................oh no dats da move! TOUCHDOWN!!!

                I tried to warn ya.

                  OK, back to the Salary Cap

                  Say we are $5 million in debt to start. if we get gardener's $5 mil back, we are at ground 0. OK, so we have $0, then i hear there is a 5% increase in the cap so now we have $4 mil available. Mccaffrey gives us $3 mil of his $4.5 mil contract so we have $7 mil. Smith gives us $2 mil so we would have $9 mil available. Mobley may give about $1 mil(cant assume too high), making $10 mil available. Then we still have to sign Berry, Hamilton, Gold, and Hayward for sure. How much would that cost? i will guess about $6 mil($1.5 mil each for 1st year, which is very low but we are budgeted) so we have $4 mil left. Then maybe we give Portis $2 mil(hope he doesnt ask for much more that that) for next year instead of $350K so that leaves us with around 2 mil right? is that enough to lure a key free agent CB here?

                  BTW if we were to franchise al wilson, does that count against the cap, or is that considered a given? If it counts againstthe cap, we wnt be ablew to do it cause thats $5 + mil he would get. I would rather stick in Pierce and go after the free agent CB.

                    That wouldn't trun out 2 well...getting rid of ROD SMITH and EDDY MCAFFRY???that's stupid because they played the game before, and they are really good especially Rod cuz Ed is getting old, and if you get rid of Ed, were gonna have to sign a WR anyway....unless we full around with the depth chart...and put positions we have more of to wide reciever...

                      He does not mean get rid of either players. He is talking about them re-structuring their salaries. I think that it is possible that they would be willing to restructure if it helps the team. Don't know if we would be able to get all those players signed with that amount though.
                      Patriotic dissent is a luxury of those protected by better men than they.

                            it still amuses me that the chiefs tried to pry griese from denver and shanny wasnt havin it and now they are fightin dead money on the cap because of it.. anyways.. i believe there should be another cap involved as well.. a ceiling at each position at which a player can make.. guidelines on salary per players.. that would help to eliminate holdouts and players askin for large sums of money that hurt the teams.. im speakin of something that the nfl i think should regulate.. but the players union would never let it pass
