    THought you might be interested in this thread from ESPN. I do not know if it is true or not.
    Comments?

    Globe reports that the 2006 cap minimum is 90% of the $102 million dollar cap. After the Neal and Brown signings the Pats cap number is approx.$83 million, ($8.8 million below the minimum). The draft will cost approx. 3.5 - 4.0 million meaning the league charter will force the Patriots into some significant signing(s)approx. $5.0 million. Press reports have the Pats out of the Moulds/Arrington races, but I am holding out hope for Ricky Manning Jr. (will require 3rd round compensation)or Dyson . Grady Jackson NT, Brad Kassell ILB, and AzZahir Hakim also on my shopping list.

    My thoughts : It's still early in the offseason, who cares.

    The cap minmum rules do not take effect until just before the first game. I'm sure there are other teams under the minimum right now.

    There is a reason many of us pay no attention to what goes on on ESPN threads.

    The season doesn't start for another 160+ days. You can't be in violation of anything at the moment. And subtract a few more million off that remainder to meet the minimum as our individual adjusted cap is not $102M but $99.97M for 2006. That's just $3M they'd have to spend in cap to be not in violation.

    Thanks so much for the misleading title to your thread. As if it were a fact at this moment.

    Many of us on this board have had to endure too many like you who come on here and write misleading thread titles (and then start your messages with "Don't know if this is true or not").

    You're a newbie, so I'll assume it was just an oversight on your part, but in the future,please be more considerate of the people on this board. The "violation" you speak about would not be in effect until the season. Today is March 28th - so it is ridiculous for your to trumpet a headline of the Pats being in "violation".

    Maybe BB can buy one of those priceless stamps of the upside down airplane and mail it on a postcard from Florida to the NFL head office. When you need to spend cash in a hurry, it works. I've seen it done before.

    Every other team has more money (Redskins) spend more then us and we get a violation for signing two standard players sounds like they just hate the Pats.

    Well, Nothing like doing the homework. Here is what the Globe article said:
    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/articles/2006/03/28/firm_decision_in_nfl/
    So, the minimum has NOT been set, but will go up from the 84% that it was last year and will hit 90% by the end of the CBA.
