    Adam,

    In past years, you provided a list of each player's respective cap number (Active, Injured Reserve, Practice Squad, & Dead Money). Do you plan on providing a 2007 Cap Charge Player List? Thanks in advance.

    WOW! That is a lot of players that contribute a lot to this team. We really could lose some players next year.

    All the UFA's is scary and 3 really key RFA's-

    Flozell Adams (UFA)
    Tony Romo (UFA)
    Ken Hamlin (UFA)
    Keith Davis (UFA)
    Patrick Crayton (UFA)
    Jacques Reeves (UFA)
    Nate Jones (UFA)
    Julius Jones (UFA)
    Marion Barber (RFA)
    Chris Canty (RFA)
    Jay Ratliff (RFA)

    Obviously Romo is a must, I think Hamlin will be too, how about Crayton? Reeves is showing his worth right now, which is a little more than I thought it was.
    Julius is probably gone.
    I think Barber, Canty, and Ratliff are must signs.

    The key thing here is going to be Flozell. A lot of people will disagree with me, but I am not ready to let him go. He is under appreciated IMO, and a really good LT. Hall of famer, no, but he is good. We can not afford to throw someone in at LT still developing IMO.

    There is going to be a lot of work in the off-season for Jerry and Stephen.

    Hey Adam, got a question. Those bonuses that are never reachable, what are they called? Do we know what they are at this point or is that something teams reveal after the season?

    Why do fans always get all excited about this -- they'll EASILY get under the cap, still have room to sign players, and not lose any real contributors.

    The skins have been masterful at the cap. However they have not built depth on their team or put together a particularly good team.

    1.They have traded a lot of draft picks for veteran players under the theory that they are trading a shot at an unknown quantity (rookie) for a proven commodity (veteren). While there is some truth to this, the downside is players in their rookie contracts are generaly much cheaper than free agents. Not having these cheaper players as the core of the team gives you less money to spend in free agency or to resign your own free agents.

    2.Every year the Skins cut big name free agents that they signed only a year or two earlier, to clear money for another big splash free agent. While this is exciting for their fans and pint-sized owner, cutting one star for another does not add to the team. It's breaking even.

    3.Championship teams are built through the draft. They attempt to upgrade every position on the team and add depth. You cannot do this in free agency. Trading away draft picks prevents a team from preparing for the future and dealing with injuries.

    I give all do credit to the cap man for the skins, whoever that is. They have continued to make their philiosophy work under the cap. But that doesn't mean it will ever work on the field.

    As an aside, what will the 'skins do in a couple years when they have to give Campbell his first FA contract extention? Are they going to have to shut down the FA machine for a couple years to pay the tab? That may be interesting.

    I know you are a god around these ends, and I trust your opinion on most matters, but could you please cite your sources on these numbers? Some of these numbers are startling to me. For example, how is Minnesota only $2 million under the cap? I thought they were a team of fiscal responsibility, and had around $30 million worth of room prior to the draft. With no large signing, besides A.P., I find it odd that they would lose so much room in one year.

    I am extremely worried about signing Romo and a top first round draft pick. Top draft picks are so detrimental to a team's cap, something needs to be done about this.

    I have a source with the official numbers. Sorry I can't be more specific.

    The Vikings already ate up a bunch of their cap by using the LTBE loophole, giving Pat Williams a $13.2 million incentive he won't reach. It's counting against their cap right now, but they'll get it back in a credit next season.

    Update (10/2/07) -- After renegotiating Greg Ellis' contract and releasing Martin Gramatica from injured reserve, we are now $12,668,256 under the cap. That also includes Tank Johnson at a full $450,000 cap charge, since the credit for his suspension hasm't been applied yet (he should cost us only $240,000 if he is reinstated for Week 10).

    For the record, Ellis got a $500,000 raise this season. His base salary is now listed as $3,107,143, but that's only because he got paid for three weeks at a $2.5 million salary and that had to make it so he gets $3 million total. So he got 3/17 of $2.5 million, and he'll get 14/17 of $3,107,143. Add it up, and he'll get $3 million total. He also gets partial guarantees of his salaries in 2008 and 2009 if he's injured.

    Gramatica was costing us $906,240 on injured reserve. Now he's costing us only $247,416 of dead money. He could still file a grievance, but he also is now free to sign with another team and play immediately instead of wasting the season on IR, so he might not want to file a grievance.

    I know you are joking.

    But I would imagine he will get the calculator out once the contract is official...meaning after it is sent to the league office and approved.

    BrAinPaiNt is correct -- I'll get Romo's official contract information after it has been approved by the commissioner's office. And fortunately, I don't need a calculator because I can get the official cap info for the team, as well.

    This is the way I figured the New Numbers for this year.
    We are still $5,025,395.86 under the cap for 2007.
    Thanks to AdamJT13 Cap numbers.
    Sure hope this is right! I don't normally do this, and it could very well be totally wrong, but it is the way I see it, right now.

    For the spreadsheet look here
