    Eagles, NO, Rams are all going to have unload players and/or make drastic contract adjustments. I think I heard NO is like 65 million OVER the cap.

    There are plenty of teams with our level or more of salary cap space. Only about 8 or so that must dump a bunch of salary. Stephen has shown he won't even make a phone call to some free agents if he thinks their asking price may be high. He is not an all in type in regards to roster management. He is very low risk high rewards type when it comes to free agents. If more quality guys make it to the 3rd wave of free agency he might make a few deals. I hope we capitalize of some talent that becomes available.

    I don't know who is available but this feels like an opportunity to finally solve our safety situation for relatively cheap.

    We can use our premium picks for more valuable positions like Offensive Tackle and Corner and sign a veteran safety.

    I'm guessing we see contracts with minimal hits for 2021 and much larger hits in subsequent years. I don't imagine many players will sit.

    Which is my biggest motivation for seeing Daks situation resolved sooner than later. There will be opportunities. Let's hope they take advantage.

    What teams are you referencing that have our cap level or more? Because just like the Cowboys...every other team has free agents as well they have to re-sign.

    They should...low ceiling Free Agency for sure. Bad year to hit the market for players because of teams with Cap issues and the lower cap number. Justin Simmons, Marcus Maye, tons of good safety upgrades on the market.

    The Eagles have already cut Desean Jackson. They renegotiated the contracts of Alshon Jeffery and Malik Jackson where they can cut them right before the new league year begins. They will probably try to trade Zach Ertz. If not he will be cut. I think Derek Barnett may be a potential cut. Marquise Goodwin will definitely be cut. Avonte Maddox may get the axe. I could see them restructure candidates being F Cox, B Graham, L Johnson, D Slay, J Hargrave, and B Brooks.

    But there are 11 teams that must make some cuts to get under the cap instead of only 8 i originally said. But there are still 11 other teams with more cap space than we have. Not factoring the normal amount of movement we see teams do.

    That’s your response to a report that is coming from basically all sorts of insiders and media types?

    It doesn’t take much brains to realize with a lower cap, teams are going to be making surprising moves to create cap space.

    Yes, that’s my response to talking heads. In case you don’t know, all they care about is clicks from the likes of your type. That’s all. There’s a sliver of truth in some of what they say, but only a sliver and very rarely. Anyone who believes them hook, line and sinker like you are in the words of Bill Parcells, “you’ve been sucked”.

    Honestly if the cuts are this big Dallas COULD try to go bold by trading Dak and 2 1s to Seattle (that would be the cost) to get Wilson, then use the money saved (Wilson’s cap his next year is small) to go all in in FA and try to go for something big.

    Who do you think is getting cut? That could help our safety position? Honestly
