    I can't find an article about it via google, but I was listening to Fox Sports Radio on XM earlier today, and they went through the projected cap space for each team including the added cap dollars for next year. Now they'll obviously change with cuts and restructured contracts. If anyone has a full list, I'd love to see it. In the meantime, here is what I remember:

    -Dallas was at $21m, which was pretty much the middle of the league. That becomes $31m were Owens to be cut, which would put Dallas in the upper echelon.

    -Washington had (predictably) the worse cap situation, with $1m available going into next season. In other words, not enough to even sign draft picks even if they had any. :lmao:

    -Tennessee was one of the top 5 teams with cap room in the upper $30s. They've done a complete about-face from the cap hell they were in.

    -San Francisco was the top team with $41m in cap space. Ateast I think it was SF.

    -Indianapolis had one of the 5 worst cap situations, and that's with both Dwight Freeney and Cato June going into Free Agency. It appears their window might be closing quickly, with no money to build a defense.

    I thought it was very interesting. That's just what I remember off the top of my head. And in case any one has it, the FSN radio channel on XM is great during football season....they talk football all afternoon.

    If for some reason Owens, Bledsoe and Adams were cut we'd have over $40 mill available. I'm not suggesting that just throwing out a "what if".

    I said that a hiwle ago -- and myself and others thought it was crazy, a pipe dream that made no sense. Now it's looking like a great plan. It looks like they'll be forced to choose between him and Suggs. Suggs age may win out.

    I will take Suggs.

    Either one would be a great addition.

    Too bad this is reported to be one of the weakest free agent crops ever. With all of the teams with cap space and the cap going up, megamoney is going to be tossed around. I don't know if it will be 55 million Gil Meche crazy, but probably more than we are used to.

    I'm hoping for someone with a pulse at FS. The WR market absolutely sucks too.

    Don't worry about the Skins. They have plenty of overpaid players that they can cut -- like almost everyone they signed this offseason.

    WEll, is that figured in with Drew Bledsoe being cut, best i remember he is on contract for another year, but you know he probably will retire, best i remember someone said that we would save about 5 million dollars or so by him retiring.

    If he wasnt added in, with the 21.68, that would put us with about 27 million or so. With that dallas might still keep TO, i am not sure, but best of my knowledge there isnt a great wr next year avaible in free agency.

    not sure that i still want to, seems like he has some head issues now when he says that his heart isnt in it, when he has played last couplle of games, and he was just doing through the motions on some plays.

    i have reports that we may look at randy moss if the raiders let him go, but to me it seems like he is injury prone now, so not sure i want him if he is available, but i do know if we dont make the super bowl this year, we still need an imact wr, glenn is or will be 34 next year, and to does take double coverage sometimes, which opens other holes for receiving.

    i do want a. thomas the de/lb from the ravens, i think we need a young offensive linemen, resign colombo & gurode, find a backup center, and a quality nose tackle. Finally i think we need an impact kicker, young kinda like our punter, mcbrair.

    i still think patrick watkins will be our free star safety, which will enable roy williams to move and stay closer to line of scrmmage.

    Which FA's is Pittsburgh due to lose this year?

    Some of their defensive players, I'd imagine, would draw considerable interest.

    And with their cap, they won't be able to do much without cutting some folks.

    I actually wouldn't be too broken up about getting rid of any three of those guys (maybe all three?). Only problem with tossing out TO and Hotel is as bad as they've been at times, there's nobody to replace them with.

    I wonder how Freeney'd be in a 3-4...

    Jerry Jones upon seeing this list:

    "Get me Deion on the phone."

    You've gotta say it as the fake Jerry from the The Ticket, though.

    I think cutting Bledsoe is a no brainer
