It looks like right now we stand at $1.8 million under the cap. We really need to get Wayne Hunter Quintin Mikel and hate to say it Steven Jackson out of here.

Thats really old^^^

With the announcement that the Salary Cap for 2013 will be $123,000,000 we can accurately update our cap situation.

With Steven Voiding his Contract, the "Top 51 Rule" has our contracts at $110,968,029 (but we only have 46 players under contract). But you have to add in the dead money of $4,312,806 and also add the $247,000 of 2012 cap rollover.

What it all boils down to is this: we currently have $7,966,166 in Cap space


The cuttable contracts we have are (money saved);
Wayne Hunter = $4,000,000
Harvey Dahl = $4,000,000
Matthew Mulligan = $750,000
Quintin Mikell = $3,000,000

And the one contract that we could look at restructuring if we had to (they really dont want to) is James Laurinaitis. They could turn that Bonus he is getting this year into a pro-rated signing bonus, saving up to $8,250,000 for the cap this season. But again, they REALLY dont want to do that.

Thanks dude. I didn't realize the one I found was old. That makes things alot better than the $1.8 million that I thought we had haha
