You know, every time I hear the difference between the sides... now at 2 million, it seems like it's getting lower gradually; I wonder which side is budging or if they are both budging.

How much cap space do we have? It's not like Benson doesn't have the money, just every team has to abide by the same cap amount...

last I remember we had to restructure contracts just to get Lofton & Hawthorne signed...

I can't believe it's June and we still have these threads. Very frustrated at the pace of these negotiations.

I might be mistaken but Benson can be a gazillionaire but still have to abide by the cap.

That was my point; Benson has all the money in the world, but the NFL only allows each team to spend 120 million this year on player salaries

I've got a feeling that money isn't really a big issue here. Something in my gut says that Drew just really isn't in a big hurry to get to camp. Remember how busy he was last offseason? Remember when favre wouldn't commit to playing until later in the offseason, so he wouldn't have to go through the entire training camp? I may be completley wrong, it's just a hunch.

Man if i had 2million i could give away. I'd give it to Drew. That Super Bowl win was worth every dime. The day of my sports life.
