Like on the short bus special ?
Here is a link to the 2020 draft picks and their 1st year cap hits:
Here is what the picks we have in this year's draft were paid in from last year's draft (1st year cap hit):
Pick #10 - $3.58M
Pick #44 - $1.35M
Pick #66 - $0.89M
Pick #75 - $0.87M
Pick #99 - $0.82M
Pick #107 - $0.81M
Pick #115 - $0.80M
So you are already up to $9.12M through Round 4.
Brace yourself for Ha Ha Clinton Dix-type signings for free agents with their best days in the rear view mirror.
McCarthy will hopefully tell Stephen to get shat done money-wise to fill some holes with quality players.
I fully expect 1-2 of Ricardo Allen, Keanu Neal and Damontae Kazee to sign
It's getting to where I ask myself that all the time.
I would say our best deals have been Olineman and Witten and even those deals you could poke holes in.
The Texas Daksaw Massacre?
Fasten your seatbelt........sounds like it's gonna get crazy
Any DT that might unexpectedly become available? I personally feel like that's our biggest need.
Did you notice how Robert Quinn and Aldon Smith kind of pulled up and disappeared late in the year? As if they were going half speed to stay healthy?
Not just picking on them because this is common. There's a whole lot of self-preservation and self-branding going on out there. The team aspect of pro football is a dinosaur.
GMs and owners are taking notice. Why pay top dollar when players see signing day as the finish line, not the Super Bowl?
There will be upgrades but their idea of addressing DT may be just trying again with McCoy.
Bigger massacre comes to the dreams of the free agents already out there. Very small pot of money for them to fight over this year. The free agent wage scale is going to drop.
*Although* everything depends on what happens, if anything, with new tv contracts. The 30% increase reported on the Disney/ABC contract would totally flip the script.
Being one of the worst defenses in NFL history IS something special.
Damn.....guess we may as well accept this is now a different team. Appears they're now doing all the right things to be competitive for years.
1st round rookie contracts are guaranteed for 4 years. LVE won't be cut.
And even *if* he weren't guaranteed, I doubt they cut a guy who showed so much promise as a rookie for the few million we'd save. Too much upside to throw away.
Teams willing to spend money will get some bargains...we'll be sifting through the trash pile looking at guys who've been injured all of last year to sign for $1.00
Everyone's cap is so bad.......Dallas bargain bin shopping might net them a few good players. This is probably the best year to bargain bin shop. I don't think teams are equipped to have a lower salary cap and still sign their own guys. A lot of teams are going to push the salary down to later years but even then that can only do so much.
We're middle of the road on cap space but we won't go out and pickup any top tier players, maybe a few players for depth or as charron stated, a project player or two.
He'd have to be a June 1 guy. He saves basically nothing making him a regular cut.
This free agency, I look forward to us not cutting our current dead weight and signing new dead weight instead.
Stephen’s new mantra, “We like our underachieving overpaid guys.”.........
