    I thought Adam said earlier we had significantly more than that.

    I believe it is. I think they had LTBE that are not earned, so those will free up some cap space etc. Not sure of the exact details, but I am pretty sure, Cowboys have significant cap space available.

    The $2 million number comes from the fact that we have about $90 million in charges for 2006 right now, and they're using an estimate of $92 million for the cap.

    However, $9.6 million of those charges are bogus incentives for Rivera and Ferguson that were inserted to get around the 30 percent rule. Those will disappear one way or another. Another $500,000 is an LTBE Pro Bowl incentive for Flozell Adams, which will become NLTBE and won't count against the cap, since he didn't make the Pro Bowl this season. Another $585,000 will disappear when Jacob Rogers, Derek Pagel and Brett Visintainer are all released from injured reserve. Another $882,150 will disappear when Jason Witten, Bradie James and Andre Gurode void their contracts (although we can keep Witten and James by buying back 2006 for about $1.495 million each). And our LTBE loophole credit should be around $3.2 million. Add it all up, and we should end up with more than $16 million of cap room before making offers to our RFAs and EFAs -- and before doing anything about Allen, Adams, Ellis, Glover, Nguyen, Singleton, etc.

    <raises hand> I'm confused with Adam's "Another $585,000 will disappear when Jacob Rogers, Derek Pagel and Brett Visintainer are all released from injured reserve" and another thread claiming Rogers is cheaper to keep year than release...

    The Mosely article "The Cowboys will take an $855,000 hit against this year's salary cap whether or not he makes the roster. If he makes the club, Rogers will earn a base salary of $385,000.

    With all our loopholes, imagine what kind of damage the Browns and Cardinals can do after all's said and done ... heck, they'll have over $30 mil each in extra money.

    LA was working him over at the Pro Bowl. Maybe that will help change his mind. Who knows for sure?
