Not too bad with Vilma/Smith having new deals offered and Harper big numbers easily changed.
Only worry is we need 5/7ml for a LT.
Might be able to make room for a LT and hopefully a good FA or two if the new deals are low enough.

We still have a little ways to go before 12 March to get the Top 51 under the cap, then we have to keep it there through the draft and free agency.. not out of the woods yet, although we can see the tree line finally.

thanks for putting this up. I'm assuming this still reflects Vilma, Smith and Harper?

Got 30.2ml wrapped up in Vilma,Smith and Harper.
Shouldn't even be paying half of that.

And they probably won't .... maybe they will restructure Brees next year.

IMHO Vilma and Harper are irritations, Smith is like a big fat armor plated bloated mosquito. If Smith has a season like 2009 then he will just be a medium mosquito...

More than anyone else on the team he has a huge delta between his contract and his performance value.
