I thought Raiola didn't have any dead money?

That was the supposed picture during the season from what we could tell, but it looks like he had some. Same for Peterman, although not nearly as much.

If we release KVB and Raiola after June 1st their dead money doesn't come off until next year, which will help a lot. Wink


True for this year, but also just making next year worse.


Next year might not be as bad, with the new tv contracts coming into play and affecting the cap.

Well this is probably going to get missed because everyone ignores stickied threads Laughing, but the salary cap is going up $2.4 million so that helps:

I'm not even going to attempt it at this point... too much going on behind the curtain, per se. I'd say we have room for 2 more $4-5M per year guys when it all shakes out as well as filler.

I hear ya.

While I agree with your assessment, my math left us at 0 cap after those signings(including borrowing from next year). I am curious what they will be doing by summer to sign their draft picks. Guessing they will need to open up ~6mill for them all.

spotrac has Suh's salary this year at 630,000. I think I know how we afforded all these players.

Yep, I'd say that's a huge slice of the pie that fed our free agent frenzy.

Calvin restructures for another $3.4 million relief this season:

I love that our players show that they want to win and help our team improve!
