    If and when the Patriots were to impose the fines on Deion for not showing up to work, does that in any way affect our salary cap status?

    I don't believe so. The cap hit is already set. Fining Deion just keeps the money out of his pockets.

    Fines have no impact on the cap.

    However, I suspect that we will get a credit towards next year's cap for any game checks forfeited during the little weasel's holdout.

    Not true. For each week Branch misses the Pats' 2006 cap gets a credit.

    Interesting. That means that each week that Branch doesn't show up we get a credit of 62 or so thousand dollars to the cap. Should we need to sign a player due to injury in week four or so, we'll have that much more room this year because of Deion's shenanigans.
