We are very close against the cap. The current $9.9M should just about cover the contracts not yet posted: Simon, Dorsett, Pennell, Harris, and Brooks). ============== CURRENT SITUATION We have about ZERO cap space. =============== We need money for the following 1) rookies 2) end of off-season stuff: player 52 & 53, Practice Squad, IR folks before the season starts 3) reserves for in season replacements and incentives 4) Minor free agents: primarily at veteran minimum or other near minimum compensation 5) replacements or re-signs of Hogan, Waddle, John, Gostkowski, Allen, Shelton, Clayborne and McClellan [could be rookies] 6) upgrades $14M FOR STARTERS 1) about $3M 2-3) about $10M 4) about $1M IN ADDITION We need money for #5 and #6 ($6M-$11M) for a total of $20M to $25M. OPTION 1 is to leave some restructures for later to cover 2&3. This $10M could be covered by the restructures to Cannon, Gilmore and Mason). OTHERS we would need extensions, retirements or cuts to sign anyone else, including the draftees.
