    My note - The 2008 cap is projected to be $116,134,000. I believe that the above numbers are of 9/25/2007 - the date of Adam's post. My 2007 numbers for the Pats are off by $2.1 million. I have them under the cap by $7.9 million when they are actually under the cap by $5.8 million. I believe that there are Patriots with unreported roster bonuses/ LTBE incentives that are causing this difference.

    Those are some amazing numbers. You have to hand it to Indy with the
    amount of cap room they have and the team they have put together. The
    other interesting (from my point) is how the Jets, with that much cap space,
    could have screwed over Kendall, especially in light of how bad that team
    sucks.

    Should be an opportunity to trade with Washington as they are up against the Cap.

    Umm . . . what tradeable players does Washington have that other teams (especially the Patriots) would want? :)

    Our focus in the next off season will be on the defensive backfield and linebacker. The receiver situation will sort itself out, but we enough under contract.

    Linebacker Seau and Bruschi are in the last year of their contracts with little behind them.

    The secondary has the following players in their last year
    CORNERS: Samuel, Gay, Scott
    SAFETIES: Wilson and Mitchell

    We certainly hope Harrison will be able to be counted on for the 2008 season.

    We could trade them players in exchange for draft picks.
    They must make moves to sign those future picks...
    Their cap is spent on 45 players.
    Lets help them out and help ourself at the same time.

    They're doing it with twice as many first year players as the average team - let's see if they get burned by that by the end of the season.

    Just this season Indy has created cap room by:

    1. Restructuring Peyton's contract
    2. Signing Freeney (previously Franchised) to a massively backloaded contract
    3. Losing Tarik Glenn to retirement

    Without these moves, Indy would have negative cap space.

    #1 and #2 had no impact on their talent, but had the effect of pushing cap space from this season into future seasons.

    #3 had a negative impact on their talent (but no future salary cap consequences).

    I would hardly characterize these moves as genius.

    Eight teams with more than $10mm in cap space this season? That's amazing. I wonder if they set out to spend so little relative to the cap.

    In the case of the Colts, why structure the Manning and Freeney contracts with higher out year requirements if they have $14mm in space now?

    This is just as strange as the first few years of the cap, when every team was way over.

    It also means that the agents didn't do a particularly good job. With so many teams holding so much available cap space, agents probably could have withheld players longer to push bidding higher.

    Cap hell has "always" been coming for the Colts, just hasn't gotten here ;) . Polian know whats he's doing, every year the Colts make smart moves and teams wonder why they never seem to get closer to cap hell. They also have the youngest team in the league, a higher amount of cap room than most of teams, and are the defending champs. Not bad managment

    The only problem is they have a huge percentage of their cap tied up in a few players. As long as they are healthy that is fine, but if anything happens to them, they are screwed. But they were quite healthy last year and it worked for them.

    Both the patriots and the colts have one player they cannot afford to ahve injured. After that, they both do incredibly well with cap, and have done so for the entire decade. This continue for both teams through 2009 season (the end of the decade).
