Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

Looks like they agreed to a salary cap as well:

NFL lockout -- Owners, players moving towards CBA settlement, source says - ESPN

$120M, with a "guaranteed spend" clause that requires teams to spend a minimum of 90% of the cap each year.

Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

Alright, FINALLY. I'm just SHOCKED that this deal got done just in time so no money is lost on the preseason games... but whatever. I'm so excited for football to be back, free agency is going to be insane across the league... can't wait to get going!

120m doesnt seem like enough to do much of anything.

There's a difference in that cap spending must be cash. No more of dead money counting towards the cap. This adjusts the cap up in real terms.

Wow then we have a ton to spend, since we've got like 30 million in dead cap already.

And...Clayton had these exact numbers pegged three weeks ago. Glad the NFL pushed hard against a brick wall for two weeks.

I'd be shocked if dead money didn't coun't as cap room as that would pretty much kill players on non-guaranteed contracts. My guess is that the cash requirement is just separate from the cap requirement, which is to say: every team gets to be the 2006 Redskins now.

So sounds like we only have ten mil of cap space, but total value of (guaranteed?) contract dollars will have to ballpark $40 million. That will not be hard.

Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

Just read Claytons July 8 article you're probably referring to, along with tonight's article and neither give the impression that dead cap money is not included in the 120MM cap. I highly doubt any if the 7 teams clayton mentioned as being in trouble with a 120MM cap would be over if we took out "dead cap."

Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

I'm also enjoying the excitement over our impending spending spree: because we've been so great at that in the past.

Money is going to be flying around in a couple of weeks. The key may be to spend it without really spending it.

Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

Ya see, this is going to fuxxor our reputation even more even though we may genuinely need to sign a lot of FA's to fill our roster.

Grossman
McIntosh
Rogers
Moss
etc
etc

If they leave then we have to sign FA's or start scrubs.
Not much of a choice.

Re: Report: Rookie Wage Scale Agreed To

We shouldn't be afraid of signing free agents...if were ever going to be good again not all the players will come through the draft. It's just about spending wisely. I'm all about putting money into the offensive line..I would like us to resign Moss OR we can make a play for HOlmes...with our young receivers and the fact that this is probably a rebuilding year I don't want to push guys like Armstrong down the depth chart if we can spend money elsewhere...

Below is an article that mentions the cash requirement, although it seems to apply only to the 90% salary floor:
Jeff Pash said owners have offered 90-percent cash guarantee | National Football Post
