Re: Cap situation...

I don't have concrete numbers - but I think we're sitting right around 20 mil also. We still have new contracts to make for some of our players (Colston comes to mind), as well as draft picks to sign. We're not exactly rich. But I think we could afford one more big FA addition, or maybe two mid tiers. But that's probably about it.

Re: Cap situation...

Thanks guys. I'd like to see us get a deal with Colston very soon. What about Will Smith? Did we ever extend him?

not yet.. he will be a FA next season so i expect them to either reup him or franchise him after the season

colston will be a Restricted FA and im sure he will get a 1st and 3rd rd tender, meaning if someone offers him a contract we can match or take their 1st n 3rd rd picks as compensation
