    PICK IT APART!
    ---------------------------------------
    This is without another $11M or so from the direct and in indirect affects of a new CBA. The indirect effects would mean longers restructure and contract periods.
    ------------------------------
    CAP MONEY AVAILABLE
    Current Status $4.1M

    RESTRUCTURES $7.9M
    (OVER CURRENT CONTRACT
    LENGTHS)
    Colvin 2.25
    Green 1.5
    Vrabel 1.5
    Bruschi .45
    Dillon 1.5
    Harrison .7

    SIGN ERFA's ($1.7M)

    RE-SIGN McGINIST $4.0M
    ($3M more if not re-signed) -------

    SUBTOTAL $14.3M

    NET CAP COSTS ($5.3M)
    Sign Draftees and UDFA's ---------
    Player 52,53
    Reserve for injury

    AMOUNT LEFT NOW $9.0M
    NEW CBA $11.M
    -------
    $20M

    Not a bad budget at all for free agents and extensions!
    This dosn't include the release of Poole or anyone else.

    The only way that the Pats could be $4.1 M under the adjusted cap figure is if Richard Seymour's $3 million salary decrease was not offset by a roster bonus. IMO, there is no way that Seymour plays for just $2 million in new money this year.

    If $2.5M is right, then we have $7.4M for free agents without a new CBA and about $18.4M with a new agreement.

    Pretty much, so I don't see the point of this when a CBA extensions does not even look likely.
