Now, I know that none of this will be necessary if there is no cap. I think that Brady will be extended with a 2010 cap hit at or below the $10M Miguel has listed. And I think there is easily enough money for two of Mankins, Seymour and Wilfork, even at $10M a year of 2010 cap. With restructures and a bit of work, we might even be able to sign all three. BTW, we could use a 1st or 2nd round draft pick on a guard to replace Neal or Mankins. ==================================================== CURRENT SITUATION (34 "signed" for 2010 plus six 2010 rookies for a total of 40) Using Miguel's numbers, I have eliminated thaose who likely won't make the squad and added the rookies. ================================================ IN ROUND NUMBERS WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY $45M LEFT for 13 spots. ================================================ SIGN OR REPLACE FOR $25M 2010 CAP OR AT AN AVERAGE OF $2.5M EACH Gostkowski Faulk Neal Kaczur Watson Alex Smith Galloway Bodden Green Woods ========================================= THAT LEAVE $20M for Mankins Seymour Wilfork ========================= We can CERTAINLY afford two of the three, if we choose to.
