    Do you? You posted a bunch of numbers, but nothing to back it up. I can do the same, it wouldn't make me right.

    I doubt we have enough money to sign Levitre or Melton, but with all teams can do, you never know.

    If we were able to land those two guys, I think it would be key because it would open up the entire draft to us. Meaning we would be able to truly take the BPA at each of our picks.

    If we drafted a S in round 1 and haven't signed starters in free agency at G and DT, we would almost have to go DL or OL in round 2. If we did though, and we had, say, Lacy rated by far the best guy on our board, we could easily take him at RB and be ok on the lines.

    Without getting some OL/DL starters in free agency, we will almost be pigeonholed into picking them in rounds 1 and 2... possibly bypassing much higher rated prospects.

    Like I said, probably won't happen for Melton and Levitre, but we do need to get some help there so we don't HAVE to take those positions early, no matter what.

    If we don't get FA's and have to address the lines early though... this is a really good year to do so.

    It's going to be hard to re-sign Spencer as he'll be a key target on the market. Probably will get too rich for our blood.

    The Cowboys really don't have much guaranteed (prorated) money tied up in 2014 and beyond.

    You might see reports that the 2014 cap is high, but a very high percentage of it appears to just be base salaries.

    You will see huge base salaries in the later years of some contracts; however, these are often meaningless. It is just a placeholder in order to increase the number of years in the contract.

    Many of the 2014 base salaries are doubtful to be paid. I wouldn't be surprised if all of the following base salaries are gone in 2014:
    $8,000,000.00 Doug Free
    $5,500,000.00 Jay Ratliff
    $5,500,000.00 Miles Austin
    $4,000,000.00 Gerald Sensabaugh
    $3,500,000.00 Orlando Scandrick
    $3,400,000.00 Nate Livings
    $2,250,000.00 Mackenzy Bernadeau

    $32,150,000.00 Total

    He has posted more stuff like that, but I was only able to go back to his last 100 posts.

    Really? FA hasn't even started yet. As of right now, we are 18 million over.

    Someone asked Adam before the season ended what our Cap situation looked like for next year and he said he wouldn't go into cap stuff till our season was over. Haven't seen anything cap related from him since then.

    Do you understand that player are signed to contracts that are paid over years not one lump sum up front. Also the signing bonus is prorated over 5 years. You cab sign any player to a large contract but spread it out to work anyway they want. You can sit the first year salary low and prorated signing bonus this year will be the only cap hit.

    Just look up Carr's contract for example.
