Sorry if this is talked about at length somewhere, but I can't find it.

With the few guys we have signed, what does our cap situation look like for THIS year? And are we now set up to maybe extend a couple guys in order to give us more cap room over the next 2-3 years?

Also, since I am asking.............I don't know a ton about how the contracts work and what counts against our salary cap.

let's say a guy gets like 30 million guaranteed over 5 years.

Of the guaranted money, does that mean it counts against the cap 6 million per year for 5 years?
And how does it affect us if we cut/trade the guy?

Most estimates I have seen still have the browns at least 15 million under the floor, but I haven't seen an exact number yet.

depends on how the contract is structured....with the Bryant and Kruger contracts they got large roster bonuses for this year and then every other year have signing bonuses

and the total cap hit each year is just base+signing bonus+other bonuses

^^^^^^does a good way of diagramming it for ya
