Nice work as usual cobber.
Could you please post the details of Laron Landry's rookie contract and the contract extension signed by Chris Cooley?
Thanking you in advance.
The Bengals' website also shows 54 players on the active roster but that includes S Kyries Hebert who was signed on Jan 2nd. Since he's listed on the NFLPA.org website, I'm assuming his contract had been processed.
Thanks for the help last year with the signing bonus thing. Were you ever able to track down the details of Willie Anderson's contract? My cap figures overall look spot on, but something seems fishy about his numbers. Thanks!
Anderson's cap number is $4.9 million -- $3.15 million salary, $1.2 million proration, $500,000 LTBE and $50,000 workout bonus. There doesn't seem to be anything unusual in his contract.
There is about 8 mil that will carry over from last year due to LTBEs that where not achived.
There will be 5 mil more freed up when Smith's roster bonus is prorated for the rest of his contract.
Over 15 mil of that cap is due to Peppers and there is no way that deal will not get reworked.
Cutting Carr will save 2 mil
Cutting or reworking Morgan, Foster and Wahle, all of which will happen, will save another 16 to 18 mil
When adding all those things up it will add 30 to 40 mil to the Panthers cap space
The big question though, what to do with Peppers? I think Hurney goes overboard sometimes restructuring contracts and because of that we're in this situation. Depending on how much cap room we actually have maybe the Panthers will eat that 15 million this season and slap the franchise tag on him in 2009, I kind of doubt that though.
Or my requests about the Bills? :o
Can you break down all the contracts of the Miami Dolphins, not just current, but past as well.
Also if you have time, I need some tech support.
Last year saw a once in a decade jump in the cap due to the signings of new TV deals with the networks.
A long list of veterans are expecting salary increases as they have fallen way behind the new player contracts so a lot of the cap $$$ will be used to placate them. You also have to remember that a lot of teams hide $$$ in bogus player incentive contracts which are never met. These teams can have at any time 7 or 8 million free money just in case a top high paid veteran gets hurt and has to be replaced.
Teams that choose to spend their money on FA's rather than placate a lot of angry veterans may have great difficulty resigning their veterans down the road when their contracts expire. So cap $$$ can be misleading until veteran's salaries catch up with the huge increase in the cap.
