Someone plaese explain to me how we are only 2.5 million under the cap.The past 3 seasons we have a record of 13-35 and only one (Urlacher) premier player on our roster .I know we are paying Tait and Awale huge roster bonusses but who else is eating up our space? Elite teakm like the Eagles with great talent all around are discussing bringing in Muhammed and my G.M. says don't anticipate any big moves....its getting very frustrating to be bad and broke.Someone please explain to me how this happebed and what is the master plan.Oh i forgot i'm sure we don't have one!

If you got the cap figure off the commish site then check again. I believe you have 16-19 million.
Most of the original projections were wrong.

"[quote]8 Chicago Bears $17.757 M
The Bears are in outstanding cap shape -- and may be able to clear up even more space with some cuts here and there. With that said, we see them as a team willing to make a number of minor moves -- but unwilling to get in on high ticket bidding wars. Thanks to Lloyd Thomas (the Capmeister) for the well researched, updated numbers! This figure does take into account Quinn's release[/quote]." -askthecommish.com

The bears are #8 in terms of cap room and look good going into FA with at least 10.5-11 mil for free agency.

I thought they had more then 2.5. That doesn't even cover the rookie signing pool.

It will show you that as o today the bears Cap #'s are 8th in the league with $17.757 M of space not alloting the needed amount for the draft (about 6 mil, but maybe less with no rd 3)
