    It's not quite right. Romo's previous cap number was $2.506 million. If the reported information is correct, his new cap number would be $8,922,667 -- an increase of $6,416,667. So if we were $12,668,256 under the cap before he signed, we would be $6,251,589 under the cap after he signed.

    The two problems you had were prorating his bonus over seven seasons (the maximum this year is six) and forgetting about his previous cap number.

    Thanks - I had already figured out, that I forgot about his previous cap number, but did not know about the 7 seasons. Thanks Can you let us know where we are in 2008 numbers?

    does this season count since they are dumping some of the salary into this year's cap. i thought i read somewhere they were able to stretch it out 7 years because of that.

    yea i read somewhere also that somehow because of the deadline, somehow this was more or less a 7 year deal. I don't know how they are doing it, but leave to Jerry and Stephen to figure it out. Be glad when Adam can do the numbers.
    I love the way a lot of the Redskins are griping about the way it was done and we still have cap room.

    The bonus can't be prorated into 2013. The maximum bonus proration this year is six years.

    Albert Breer is the one who claimed the bonus could be prorated over seven seasons, but the CBA doesn't allow it.

    Update (11/1/07) -- Romo's cap number this season is $8,922,666. We are now $6,337,473 under the cap.

    Also, Martin Gramatica received an injury settlement of $94,118, and Tank Johnson is counting $270,000 against the cap. (Either Tank gets paid for the bye week during his suspension, or we'll get another $30,000 credit later).

    Manning is going to have to renegotiate or something- even with the growing cap space, that is too much. Add that to Harrison and Freeny, and you will have a third of the cap taken up by those three.

    Did we get to roll some of the signing bonus from Ratliff's new deal into the cap this year like Romo?

    Did some of the pro-bowl players have clauses that will affect our salary cap?

    Only Flozell Adams. He'll cost us another $500,000, whenever his bonus is applied to the cap.

    Does Roy's suspension/Crockett's addition save us money against the cap?

    It should cost us about $13,235, if Crockett stays only this week.

    Adam - just a question. If for instance, let's say, Roy Williams were to pull another RW tackle against Washington and got suspended for 2 or 3 more games. Before next season, the Cowboys decided to let him go. What would it cost? Would they have to soak up the rest of his bonus money in one year or is it still spread out over the original number of years?
