    Default Colts 15.7 Mil Under the Cap...

    http://www.stampedeblue.com/2011/8/4...y-cap-for-2011

    Some of you may not know this, but the new league year has not officially begun because the new collective bargaining agreement has not been officially signed. For the last two weeks, the NFL and NFLPA have been working to finalize the CBA, and both are expected to ratify it today in Washington, DC.

    Some of the new details emerging from the CBA include (via Mark Maske of the Washington Post):

    Players' appeals on illegal hits are heard by former-coaches and players Art Shell and Ted Cottrell, who were jointly appointed by league and union.
    Commissioner Roger Goodell retains full authority to enforce personal conduct policy.
    HGH testing with not be part of the new CBA.
    The other detail in the new CBA is that, when ratified today at 4 p.m. Eastern, all NFL team must be under the 120 mill dollar salary cap. No exceptions.

    This has forced many fans to ask, 'Who is over the cap?' Well, PFT has a story out detailing who is and isn't. Surprisingly, the Colts are the team with the second most cap space in the league right now at $15.7 mill.

    Um, yeah. So now Indy has money. I just have one thought upon hearing this news...

    SIGN SOME MORE FREE AGENTS, CHRIS!!!

    This is pretty interesting... for starting out as one of the like 8 teams that was over the cap to the Colts having the second largest amount to work with....

    If this is true then they can still do a lot of work in free agency... even Bring in Randy and Whitner if they would like... I am pretty sure the Colts will spend wisely though if any...

    I'm not really buying it. It doesn't make sense. Between Peyton, Hayden and Diem we probably saved close to 10 million. We were 3 million over at one point, not sure how we saved the rest.

    If we were that far under Charlie Johnson would still be here.

    That is something else the article said about Charlie Johnson....

    I was skeptical at first as well, but now I am seeing multiple postings of this... kind of weird... maybe we will give Mathis and Wayne their contract extensions now...

    The numbers were what?
    Peyton under a f-tag is 23 mill now he's 16 saved 7
    Diem was something like 5 mill now he's 2 saved 3
    Hayed saved around 1 mill saved 1
    Add in the 3 mill exception for this year and thats 14 mill.

    I could believe it.

    I must have missed the exception, as I don't even know what you're talking about with that, but the fact that we were 3 million over the cap, and say we go back 14 mil. That's 11 million under the cap, and we have recently signed more players. How did we keep going backwards 4 more million? Besides that this same article says we have the 2nd most cap behind the Skins? How the hell is Tampa Bay not far ahead of everyone?

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a whopping $59 million in cap space to spend.
    Who did they spend at least 45 million dollars on to have less cap space than us? The accuracy seems horribly suspect for all involved, not just the Colts.

    I buy that we have $15 mil in cap space, I don't buy that that's the 2nd most in the league. Tampa definitely has a lot and I'm fairly sure Chicago and Cleveland do as well. Not sure who else.

    I'm guessing most of it will be saved for Reggie and Mathis next year, but I'd still like to bring in Moss, Whitner, and a back-up jack-of-all-trades o-lineman for depth. I feel like we've already had a pretty decent off-season, but I'd feel really good if we made those three additions.

    The answer is their own players according to this:
    The Bucs had plenty of cap room to build on their 10-6 record. Instead, they overspent with pretty much every move they made. Itís borderline ridiculous that they gave our lowest ranked guard of the last three years $53m over seven years. It wasnít much better paying a good player like Quincy Black $29m over five years. Heís never even held an every down role, and yet they gave him $7m more than an impact player like James Anderson who has? It gets even worse: their big out-of-town signing was a punter who they made the richest in the game. The Bucs blew an opportunity to really challenge the Falcons and Saints. Their pursuit of Doug Free reflected the need to improve on the offensive line and they failed in that regard as well.

    Doesn't deserve a new thread so I will put it here....

    AdamSchefter Adam Schefter
    Former Bills S Donte Whitner did NOT go to Cincinnati. He agreed to a 3-year, $11.75 million deal with $4 million gtd with the 49ERS.

    WOW I am surprised after all of the money that he was asking for he signed for Cheap... a little upset that we couldn't get him for this amount but oh well I guess it is what it is.... Even though some may not think he is worth much I feel that everyone would have to agree that he would have added needed depth to our secondary....

    Hummm I wonder if the Colts would be interested at all in trading for Taylor Mays... verdict is still out on this guy but he does have a lot of potential... I think the most, the absolute most that I would give for him would be a 3rd rd pick... and I almost wouldn't want to give u that... maybe a 4th this year and a 5th next... best thing about him is that his contract isn't bad at all...

    I knew it didn't make sense. Tampa may have signed their own guys but 45 million worth just for this season? I couldn't see it.

    This list makes a ton of sense.
