Over the Cap has us at 16 million with Jenkins restructuring his contract, I still think we extend Warford and reduce his hit along with Davis

with all the moves I saw that to say I think one more big move FA is coming I thought maybe Griffin or Ogletree and a WR along with backup QB but if Mickey wants I think he can Sign Clowney and Ogletree along with still getting our backup QB

I guess we will see maybe this is why Clowney hasn’t signed he wot get a multi year deal and said he wanted to be with a contender

We have 16 million in Cap space...well lets not forget that we need dollars for Tay Hill before we dream of going big spending for other Free Agents.

We absolutely do not have $16 million in cap space, they haven't accounted for recent big signings (3 of them).

It's more like 2-3 million at best.

It's tough to get an exact figure without studying all the specifics of the contract structures.

I believe Peat's cap number for 2020 with his new deal is incredibly low, because most of the money is in the signing bonus for the first few years, keeping the base salary low.

Brees also has a low base salary for 2020 with the way his deal is structured.


Probably what allowed Loomis to go and get Malcolm Jenkins, and Sanders along with the Janoris extension, Kiko and P-Rob restructures, and I believe Michael Thomas and Armstead had some of their cap figures shuffled around as well.

No, we will be around $6m after we hear the numbers on Sanders, Spence and Nichols. OTC has us just Over $9m before these signings. I’d guess that Sanders cap number will be $3Mish and Spence will most likely be the veteran $800K cap hit which would only add $150k to the cap. I’d also imagine that Nichols will cancel out another $677k that counts against the cap. So, Sanders ~$3m + $150k= $3.1m. So $9.1-$3.1= $6m in cap space.

Peat’s cap number in 2020 is $3.6M

Taysom is already under contract. They may give him something longer but I don't think it would change that much.
I think we will see something done to extend Hill. The new CBA allows us to be creative with his deal. I can see it escalate drastically over the next 2 years. Something like, $5m in 2020, $8m in 2021, and starter type money like $15m in 2022. Lower the base in 2020 to $1m plus signing bonuses. My guess, 3 years, $28m with a $9m signing bonus and $16m guaranteed. It will Probably have an out after 2 years.

Man we are really kicking the can down the road.
I believe there is an out in the contract after Year 3, before it really escalates.

If he sees the back half of that deal he will have become consistent and earned it, if not they can release him for minimal cap hit before 2023.
