    Considering Mara and Goddell tried to knee cap us on the eve of free agency, I think we did a very good job with what we had to work with.


    We are still a little thin at TE and WR, but that can be addressed in the draft if need be. I am fully expecting DeCastro or Glenn at pick 14 to upgrade the line.

    Adam's pretty good about that. The cap numbers show should already include the $5M in dead money this year.

    It's great. I love how we basically threw it back in their faces.

    Now what would be really sweet? Winning the Super Bowl this year somehow.

    Never knew the June 1 designation didn't come off the cap until June 1st. I thought when they changed it that it came off immediately. Makes what we have done all the more impressive.

    Is there a specific date Dallas has to be under the cap or does each team have to be under the cap at all times? Obviously Dallas knows Newman's $$$ is coming off the books and could operate accordingly if the specific date to be under the cap was after June 1st.

    Thanks Adam.

    I am guessing TNew's 6 mil cap savings post June will be used to offset the league's 5 mil cap hit for 2013 and assuming we spread out the 10 mil evenly over 2012 and 2013. Per Adam's numbers we could still sign Spencer to a long term deal and use that savings and maybe Ware's possible restructure to find a starting OC and # 3 WR.

    The draft will be used to get the BPA which will hopefully be an OG, CB, S, and blocking TE.

    The cap penalty is included.

    Our adjusted salary cap is $133,786,426, which includes $17,132,826 of cap room carried over from last year, $1,500,000 of cap room borrowed from the future, the minus-$5,000,000 penalty and minus-$446,400 in miscellaneous adjustments from previous seasons.

    ..$120,600,000
    +$..17,132,826
    +$...1,500,000
    -$....5,000,000
    -$......446,400

    If the Cowboys and Redskins get legal with the NFL and win....
    How long will the process take to get back the 5 million.
    Will they add back right away of jump it into next year if it is too late.

    In the Cowboys case not a monster hit. But the Redskins who are trying to rebuild around an incoming new QB.....

    So we have $3.6M before Connor deal.

    We have to sign all of our draft picks.....this does not look like enough to do that....what am I missing?????

    Brain? kidding, Newman's savings doesn't count until June 2, that money will be plenty for draft picks and Adam already said they could still work Ware's deal or sign Spencer long term for more cap room.

    Okay, so the 6M will cover draft picks this year. I was concerned because the first and second round signings typically get paid...salary and signing bonus. 6M does not seem like much to get this done.

    Adam has said on multiple occasions the draft picks will add less than 2m to the cap because you have to take off a salary for each guy you add. It's not a big deal.

    Stephen Jones was quoted the other day saying the same thing Adam has been saying all along. The cap won't keep us from doing what we want to do.

    Unless we trade for more picks, all of our rookies will use up less than $2 million of cap room, because of the Top 51 Rule.
