I'll agree that we are not using the currnet CBA to our advantage but that is a function of the negotiation itself, the Mara penaltly, the state of the team post deal and trying to win in 2009 and 2010. If you look at the low payroll teams from 2009 and 2010 like the Bucs, Chiefs, Browns, Bengals, Jags, Broncos etc. they are all in great cap shape and/or have signed big free agents on pay as you go deals. The NFL sent many edicts of don't cut your troubled contracts and clear space during the uncapped year. We will come after the dead money and lower your initial cap levels. We didn't cut people. The NFL said did and nothing to the teams that got rid of their high priced vets because that would have complicated the final stages of negotiations. After cutting Newman and the thirty year old olinemen, we were left immediately with about $25 million in dead money and a $10 million Mara hit and we had to continue to restructure Ware and Romo just to be cap compliant. Considering the disaster of 2010 and the way negotiation went it would have been great to start fresh and cut Newman, Davis etc. during or at the end of the year, but the $35 million dollar hole is and was real and the rollover provisions will continue to put us at a disadvantage.
