Salary Cap (merged)

I really wanna see the numbers or our new signings and restructurings; I normally defer to the warpath, but that info is not available, does anyone know where I can see how the new contracts and restructured contracts are structured?

The non-spending sprees will continue

for the next few years, I wouldnt expect the skins to go on any spending sprees. It's not that we have changed philosophy or anything, the reason is the same reason why we didnt go on a spending spree this year, we just simply do not have the cap space.

Re: The non-spending sprees will continue

I will never put it past this FO when it comes to finding ways to create cap space. As we've seen even in this "inactive" year, they've had little trouble finding cap space. The much bigger concern is scouting--I have no problem paying for players, just not SUCKY players (yes, that means you, AA!).

Re: The non-spending sprees will continue

I'm not sure why people are trying to say we're not spending because of no cap space. That's just wrong, we have plenty of cap room right now to make moves, and we could easily clear alot more room if needed.

I know it might be hard to believe, but the front office is taking a different approach this offseason.

The WT has an article today that outlines our current cap situation:

Re: Salary Cap

I am new to the warpath and the salary cap is why I originally found this site. The last update I have is before the restructuring and free agency acquistions. Where can I go to find the updated information? Thanks

Re: The non-spending sprees will continue

Another cap tidbit from JLC, he says we're about $9M under:

Hall was due to count $1.5 million on the teams cap, so the Skins stand around $9-plus million under the cap, and could free up another $2.5 million should they opt to let Renaldo Wynn go at some point.

They could also always restructure a few more contracts should they require even more cap space (Marcus, Griffin and Daniels would all be candidates given the nature of their contracts).

We have cap room!

Mr. Ego, please feel free to merge all these recent cap threads.

Just finished updating my sheets (March 8). Should be on the site soon. This update includes everything (Fletcher, Smoot, restructures, etc.).

I had to do a triple take but it looks like we have cap room! I calculate we have about $9.7M in cap space right now. Plus we can get another $10M or so from more restructures. So we have like $20M left to spend if we want to.

I'll be honest this is uncharted territory for me. How are we gonna spend another $20M? Even if we keep Springs, trade for Bly, trade down and sign 2 first round picks, we'd still have like $10-$15M to play with. I mean we don't even have a single player with a deadcap hit over $500K!

Maybe we'll absorb Arch's $9M cap hit after all? Maybe Mr. Snyder will distribute the excess cap room back to the fans? Or will we really enter a new season with cap room? Schneed am I hallucinating?

Re: We have cap room!

Thanks for the cap update. I think Gibbs may want to evaluate some guys in training camp before deciding to keep or cut them, namely Wynn (who I hope stays), AA & Loyd. It will be a different training camp for sure, several guys will be fighting for starting positions & roster spots. Having the cap space will allow us to cut some, like you said about AA.
We need some competition in camp, that's been one of the problems w/the fa signings, those guys are almost assured of a starting spot.

Re: We have cap room!

Maybe, just MAYBE, we are thinking about resigning Cooley and Taylor.

Hearing things like this makes it feel like Christmas.

Re: The non-spending sprees will continue

I dont believe this year is the problem, over the next few years fat paychecks with significant amounts left on bonuses will kick in, so we cant sign big priced guys this year because it will kick us in the rear in a year or so..

I agree. I think they finally learned their lesson.

I'd be very happy if that happened. I think either of those guys would command a ton of money on the open market so I'd love to get them wrapped up before it comes to that.
