well yeah, but you forget to add that a lot of these teams have rookies who will most likely command large signing bonuses, especially cleveland.

well they said somethin like the average for rookie cap hits is 4.7 mill roughly. So even with that these teams still have quite the amount of cap space, which is unfortunately gonna lead to a bunch of 2nd tier players gettin huge money next year, which then upsets the top tier players who aren't gettin that money. wait, that sounds familiar...did that happen this year already?

Gotta say, even though the Jaguars have only really been middle to upper middle of the pack for a while now, they're cap management is superb. I believe their motto is "backloading is a naughty word", which means their team salary stays even and doesn't jump up one year all of a sudden. That and they are usually very quiet FA players. I guess it puts a stress on drafting well so it's only a good cap system if you're good at that really, which they generally have been, being a playoff contender lately.

Anyway, that's enough of my divisional rival love, just don't think they get enough credit for their cap management.

Nothing to do with this year's cap really - more to do with the long term. If they were to get him inked to a new long term deal, it would count a LOT less in 07 than the franchise tag does, so yeah, not a current year cap issue.

So far, the Pats have proven they can do well with mid range DB's at some pretty crucial times, so I guess they don't feel they need to put aside a chunk of their future cap health for a CB.

I'm not a fan of the Chiefs GM Carl Peterson but I have to give it to him he really improved our cap this year it was a mess at the end of the season.

if u have a million dollars in life..do u just go out and spend it all?

he wants more than we've offered..he doesnt even want the franchise tag which is a guranteed $7.9 or w.e mill contract.

u dont overpay at a store because u have more money than the average joe.

plus ASante's franchise tag already counts towards that list so if hes traded..we'll have over $10 million like that article stated.

But what else would you rather pay for than a pro bowl caliber corner? I think the Pats front office is trying not to acknowledge the huge jump in contract sizes that Clements has put out there.

Cleveland has a 1st round QB and a #3 overall pick to dish out signing bonuses too. Not to mention a 2nd rounder who will be commanding better money than his slot usually gets since he's got leverage with the whole "should've been a top 15 pick" and the fact that he is a starting CB.

Oh i agree, i dont think that just because we have the money, we should throw it at any player who demands more. i think that if we have a pro bowl caliber player, who hasnt made any real money in his previous contact, wants more money and a longer contract we should give it to him. Hes still young and a little more money and a longer contract would only make the team better

Steelers have almost no room because they have alot of contracts in their final years like Faneca, Polamalu, Simmons, Starks, Haggans and Colcoulgh. We're supposed to have something like 43 million next year so hopefully we'll use that to get guys like Troy and Ben signed.

Law didnt get it. why should Asante?

Asante was our nickel in training camp last year..he started as the #2 CB and didnt play #1 till 9 games into the season.

he did play great and he shines in playoffs but its too early for him wanting to get a 10 mill per year contract

we offered him the average of the top 5 salaries but hes angry. and that tattoo get paid worries me

if we pay him what HE WANTS..then everyone that becomes an FA from Patriots can say..you gave Asante what HE WANTED when you had cap room so why not me?

Asante wants Clements type money, so there's no way NE will budge and give him anywhere near that much. Supposedly, the signing of Vasher hurts Asante because of comparing market deals, but Asante wants a deal that puts him into the upper tier of CB money.

The Jaguars have a great cap figure, and they only have 4 of their 11 draft picks unsigned.

Considering that 3 of those 4 are the first-day guys, that'll still be a decent amount of bonus money. But the Jaguars have always been prudent with their funds under Shack Harris.

If they ever fall in love with a free-agent, they'll always be able to cash in and acquire him without any real cap ramifications. That's the upside you get when you have a young, deep team with enough talent to consistantly make playoff runs as is.

They just missed the cut off with $9.8 million. Hey, they resigned their franchise back for 4 years I believe and a stud CB. Not to mention two 1st round picks, one being a LT/RT. I'm satisfied.
