  • Free Agency- $3mil in cap space

    I understand we now have $3mil in cap space after the Cruz deal. I’m not too keen on the ins and outs of dealing with cap space, but was curious to know if there’s anyone worth going after with the extra $3mil. I’ve heard Leach’s name thrown around as a possible FA acquisition. Are there any worthy LB’s to consider? Anyone worthy in general?
    NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

    Rd 1
    Garrett Bolles - OT
    David Njoku - TE
    Zach Cunningham - OLB

    You have to have some wiggle room when the season starts to account for players going to IR. But the real crunch time is when they cut down to the final 53. Right now only the top 51 salaries count against the CAP so we don't have a real picture.

      Plus first round pick Pugh and fourth round pick Nassib haven't been signed yet. That should be around another $2 mil combined off the cap space.

        Gotcha. I didn't know if it was feasible or logical to go after someone. Thanks!

          That's true, but they are counted in the mix as they pretty much know what their compensation packages are going to be.

            The top 51 are all that ever count against the cap...

              Giants would have about $1.5 mil in cap space after they both sign

                  All 53 + the P-Squad count against the cap.

                    Yes, there are some players worthwhile for going after. Namely our 2 unsigned draft picks. After that, replacing any players that might get injured during camp or the season. We need a couple million free during the season.

                      Practice squad players most certainly do not count against the cap.

                        I thought that was only for a certain period during the offseason. After a certain point, all 53 count. Could be wrong, though.

                          No. Once preseason ends its 53 man plus practice squad plus IR plus PUP, etc...

                              I think LayLow is correct.
