Will someone point out to this mentally challenged individual that Spotrac.com is showing the 2017 cap number as the 2016 cap number because the 2017 number will not be finalized until next Spring. If it continues increasing at the recent pace(some think it will increase faster) the base cap shows increase by $8M to $9M. Then add in the $10M of 2016 carry over and the initial free cap space for 2017 will be over $29 million. Now we move on to the 2017 roster bonuses which total approximately $15M. Loomis structures all roster bonuses to be able to be converted to signing bonuses at the discretion of the club. Conversion of the roster bonuses would up to $10M more to the open cap space bring the total to $39 million.

This does not take into consideration what is likely to become an annual occurrence, the next Brees extension. Brees' projected cap hit for 2017 is $19M. A similar extension deal to this last one could add an additional $6M to available cap, bringing the total to $55 million. Also consider that there are a number of players that can undergo restructures, with Cameron Jordan being a prime customer with his $12M cap hit. Let's say they restructure him and a couple of others with minor adjustments to a sum of $3M increased cap space. That brings the grand total of free 2017 cap to $58,000,000!

Now how in the hell does this joker get $10M?



Please quote this so that Willy boy can see the error of his ways.

I would still rather pay him more now and less next year but maybe something else is in the works especially with Spiller being a healthy scratch. I was just curious but once again I'm extremely happy for the extension.
