.... Sometimes I think it should be MANDATORY that people visit Miguel's cap page at least on a monthly basis....and there should be a test! . A converstation I was having over at kffl made be go back there a second time and I found that for all all the hype over "WILD SPENDING" by the Pats, Bob Kraft will only be writing checks for about $7.MM in signing bonuses to all six new FAs COMBINED. Now that is a lot of money, but not much in this day of FA Thomas -$2.4MM Welker - $1.1MM KBrady - $1.0MM Stallworth $1.7MM Morris - $.35MM Washinton $.5MM This one is an educated guess, since Miguel hasn't posted it. yet Here are some other little factoids to use when confronting a hater. The total cap consequence of the six new FAs (include 2 guys who most concider elite FAs) is ONLY 11% on the 2007 cap. This is coincidently the SAME 11% that these 6 guys take on the 53 man roster. THAT IS GOOD CAP MANAGEMENT Now it is reasonable to question whether the players they signed where the RIGHT players. You can question whether 2 draft picks was too much for Wes Welker. What you CANNOT do is question the fiscal prudence of the Pats FO. They might be active like the Redskins, but the CERTAINLY aren't being IMPRUDENT with their money or their future. The facts simply don't make the case.
