Falcons look really low considering all the new talent they added that will need to consume cap space in future years.

or maybe they won't over pay Ryan. What is the going rate for a choke artist... league minimum?

There's a salary floor this year as well. Not that it's hard to spend money but Tampa is far below that floor, as of right now.

Heard on Total Access this evening; deal is supposed to be on par with Flacco's. Somewhere around 20 million a year...

There is a salary cap floor this year as well as the next three. However the way the salary cap floor is set up is that a team has to spend 89% of the salary cap over a four year average. They have until 2016 to make up the difference.

What the Bucs are doing is rather brilliant, due to the carry over. They can come in under the cap this year by $30M which will carry over to next years cap. Then next year they can dominate the freeagency market with high dollar front loaded contracts.

Example: The Bucs could offer jimmy Graham a six year deal worth 42.8M making him the highest paid TE in the NFL. 15.3M the first year and 5.5M for the next 5 years. And they still have 15M to spend that is carry over.

Chew on that one for a while :-)
