    Is this raise and Branch's raise included when Clayton showed us being 4mil under the cap.

    Do you agree that we are 4 mil under?

    I have no idea.

    I never disagree with John Clayton's number even when I can't explain it.

    I went to the same site, and found the search function and had them list the whole team. You can also pick which year you want. I looked at 2005 and then I selected 2006. The following list with numbers came up. Givens and Vinitieri are missing, but so is Gay, not sure who else or what it means. Willie is listed, so is Rodney.

    Not on the list: Ashworth, Troy Brown, Chatham, Childress, Andre Davis, Dwight, Evans, Flutie, Fauria, Hawkins, James, Mruczkowski, Neal, Chad Scott, Guss Scott, Starks, Stone, Yates

    There are also new people on the list.

    Edit: I couldn't get it to open on my search results, so I changed it to the search page. I just selected NEP and then the selected the year, leave everything else as is and it produces the list.

    Is there ANY reason ... the Pats should give a million dollars to someone ... on IR ... who becomes a free agent next year?

    Except that they have signed him to a longer contract ... of whose iceberg this is the visible tip?

    Koppen must have done enough in 2003 and 2004 to earn the escalator. Since Koppen does not have a 2007 salary, his contract was not extended.

    Well, he deserves it. He started as a rookie, solid in the middle of the OL and calls the blocking schemes.

    He's the guy who made Damien Woody expendable and earned us the Compensatory Pick which became Nick Kaczur.

    Is there any chance that this is salary not paid by the Pats, but under the NFL plan for players under rookie contracts who far outperform their contracts, like Koppen three years ago and Gay two years ago? Or is that plan solely for rookies?

    It seems strange that all these increases (Branch, Samuel, Koppen) are going to guys with one year left on their rookie deal.

    None. That performance for pay program does not account against the cap.

    It is not strange. All of the players signed rookie deals that had escalator clauses in them. This is the year that the escalators were due to kick in. Klecko also had an escalator clause but it appears that he did not reach his.
