    Wah, Wah, Wee, Wah. Holy Crap. If that is true, what a b!tch that all of these defenders have been tagged by their teams.

    No I don't want Assante, I want Ty law, back Jaques Reeves, and a rookie would all be cheaper than Assante.
    He's love to take at least 80 percent of that cap.

    a rookie would only be like..1.5 million cheaper @ #7 if we stay and take a CB

    Samuel is better than all those players named

    My thought process is with BB, and Capers basically running the show, he can be coached up.
    Look how horrible Assante was at first.
    Wilson outshined him alot.
    Although I recall Law saying he really liked what he saw out of Eugene and Assante.
    Do you think we'll resign Eugene or do you think they'd both agree a change of scenery is the best scenario?

    $3.2M? Isn't that a typo? Were they including an assumed franchising of Moss? Because in reality NE had more cap space than that.

    Nope. Eckel had a portion of his LTBE on the books that comes off. Stallworth and potentially Washington's options play into that too. Not sure what else.

    Last I looked, Miguel had the Pats at 8.9 million under, and that was with Eckel's LTBE bonus removed. Stallworth and Washington options not being picked up would account for the difference.

    Before he updated the site a few minutes ago for this story, he had them as $3.2M under, or about $100k less than PFT's numbers (which were rounded off). That was with Eckel's numbers (check his doc), and definitely without Washington's (removed last week). I'm fairly sure Stallworth was on there, though.

    I don't know about that. Every season the Jags seemed to be hyped and for good reason, but they always mange to underachieve it seems.

    Yea, but have you looked at the free agent market? All these teams have $30M+ in cap space, with only a few players worthy of top dollar available. Seems to me they're all going to drive the prices up (substantially) on the top free agents, and the losers will have a large chunk of unused cap space. Because of the lack of top level players at certain positons (DB), some mid-level guys could come at a price not entirely accurate to their value, as well.

    Honestly, this is a good year to have just enough cap space to make some moves, and a bunch of first day draft picks (there's some good depth at RB, CB, DE/OLB, and OT in this 2008 class).
