    Not even close... But just about enough to sign the rookies, players 52 and 53, and cover in season injury replacements. :D

    Dolphins, Jets, Bills, have lots of CAP space. Colts, Titans and Chargers, are comfortable but pretty much constrained to a player addition or two. Steelers and Ravens are up tight against the CAP, and will have to make some player cuts for the season.

    We are comfortable for the season. But I don't see any CAP room for Jason Taylor.

    It looks like Harrison's payday has seriously hampered the Steelers. They may need to start auctioning off assets.

    Again, if the Pats really wanted to free up cap room, there is enough room. As for the rookies, the entire remaining cap room would not go to them. The addition of rookies would mean players who already count towards the cap would not. My guess is that only $2-3 million of that cap space will go to rookies. Depending on what the Pats do on draft day, it could be less.

    I don't recall the exact number for 2009, but it looks like there are a lot of teams that still have a fair amount of spending to do before they hit that minimum spending level.

    The Practice Squad players also need to be included.

    You mean Pepper Johnson? Because $4 mil is barely enough to sign the rookies.

    Cap Arithmetic

    Ok, let's play. You say that the rookies will cost a net of only $2-3M; let's use $2.5M. That leaves $2.2M for

    1) Player 52 and Player 53 which are not now counted,
    2) Replacing anyone who is put on IR during camp (there are always a couple),
    3) the 8 Practice Squad players, and
    4) an injury fund for in-season replacements of injured players

    Even with no significant additions, a significant costing player or two will need to be restuctured or cut. That is not a big issue. That is the norm. However, there is not much extra cap room available.

    Re: Cap Arithmetic

    It looks like some players are primed to be cut. Especially if players are drafted high at the same position. Top cut cap savings per Miguel:
    Matt Light - $3,790,000
    Richard Seymour - $3,331,720
    Kevin Faulk - $2,939,440
    Ellis Hobbs, III - $2,250,000

    That Faulk number would be the most tempting to me if I had to do it. Not that I want to.

    Re: Cap Arithmetic

    I agree. Restructures or extensions of Light and/or Faulk are likely to be considered.

    The Eagles were extremely close to making the Super Bowl last year, and to the extent they got worse in the off-season, nearly $40 million can make up all of that ground and then much more.

    The number that's compelling to me is the Arizona Cardinals' number. They have to do something, and other than trading Boldin I just don't see what their options are. And the Eagles have plenty to sign him to an extension, plus he fills a need that will make them great. I don't see how Arizona can come out of the post-draft period with that little money. One of those interesting little side stories to watch -- but I bet the Cards will ultimately send him to Philly, and, in the process, make another NFC team a major force to be reckoned with. Such is the cap.
