Let's face it, our competitors will spend to the cap. Last year we were hamstrung by a large dead money expenditure and also untimely retirements and injuries. We went into the playoffs with less talent and it showed in our early exit. The Seymour resigning was brilliant. The best stat about Seymour is that we win about 90% of the games he plays in, so if he can play 12 games (at that level) a year for the next 4 years the dynasty rolls on!! It is apparent that some people think that his option bonus forces us to roll salary into next year thru NLTBE incentives. This is untrue because his Cap hit in 2007 is manageable. So how can we spend to the cap THIS YEAR... Branch can and should be extended. Law is a possibility. We will have a large draft class. There will be more FA pickups. Here are our losses to date in FA/CCs: Mcginest Givens Vinateri Davis Fauria Starks Ashworth Poole C Brown Chatham Dwight Stone Additions: Caldwell Jones Mitchell Warfield Gramattica Net needs to match last years team: 2-3LBs,2WRs,TE,OL Injury Concerns: Harrison, Light, Koppen, Gramatica, Dillion So in the Draft and FA we could stand to pick up: 2 LBs,2WRs, DB, C, TE, K, QB, NT, RB My conclusion is that we must bring in more talent thru FA prior to September. Yes our schedule should be easier. Yes our dead money situation is improved. Yes we ought to have a better year with retirement and injury losses. Yes our competitors also had some FA losses.
