It looks like we have about $10.4M left in available cap room right now. It feels pretty good to not be so far up against the cap like in the last several years. And if we saw a player we really liked and had the means to go out and get him, we can feel confident that we could also pay the player a decent contract.

I like the cap room for that and if nothing else can't we roll some of it into next years cap??? I remember something about that at the start of this off-season.
Either way is a win-win IMO

Also gives us room to extend any impending free agents, Wiz, Holmes etc.

In my opinion they are a joke. In the last ten years there drafts sucked.

If we don't use it this year it will be available next year. And when some contracts expire at the end of the league year we will have more available if there are no escalations. I also have a feeling that the cap will go up again next year too. So there will be even more available. I have to wonder if we will top the league in available cap space again next year.
