Based on the new DirecTV deal alone, we could be seeing a Cap Increase between 4.6 and 6.25 Million. Early guesstimate.

I think they are talking huge jumps the next two years to like a 160M cap in 2016.



What knd of savings from Raji are we looking at moving to IR?

I've been doing some calculations using the figures from Spotrac.com.

The projected cap for 2015 is $138M. We have a rollover of about $7M but we usually just keep that so we have some flexibility to maneuver, but I'll include that nonetheless.

According to spotrac.com, we're already committed to around $122M in 2015 salaries and bonuses. Cutting Hawk and Jones would save us $7M, which would put us about $23M under the cap and if you include the $7M we can rollover we are about $30M to sign our FAs and anybody else we'd like.

Cobb at $8? Bulaga at $7? Tramon at $6? That puts us at only about $9M under the cap, not counting the rookies or any of the other FAs we have....Kuhn, Bush, Barclay, House, Richardson, Banjo, etc.....or allowing us to carry $7M in cap space.

If these figures are close to being right, then something's going to have to give.

I think you are close on Cobb and Bulaga. Much less for Tramon. How do your calculations take into effect the Peppers contract?

Early estimations seem that $138M is the low end of that estimation, and the NFL's high estimation is $141M. I don't think there's going to be the massive jump that there was this past offseason, but I also don't think that $138M is right either. Seems very conservative if you ask me.

Also, Bulaga seems like too much. Unless a team is paying him LT (which likely wouldn't be the Packers), that's on par with top RT money and given his injury history that's unlikely. And is Tramon really worth top 20 money? Based on his up and down play and career trajectory, I'd lean towards no.

In free agency, the value of any player is determined by the bidder who prizes him the most. $7 million for Bulaga? It's top RT money for a former first round pick who's only 25. Or good money for a LT. Same with Tramon.......if you're a team that has a big need for a starting corner, you'd gladly pay him $6 million.

I could be wrong and I frequently am. I'd love to be wrong here and get both of these guys for less. But I think these guys will get offers in this area and if we want to keep them, that's what we'll have to bring to the table.

As regards to the questions on Peppers contract....the Packers are going to have to do something. Even though he was our best defensive player last year, I just don't see bringing him back at that price. So that's another possibility of being able to free up some more cap space.

Peppers was our 4th best defensive player last year.

I guess that would depend on the definition of "best". I was using it in the context that he was involved in more turnover plays than any other defender.
