yes, after the 2010 season, which was an uncapped year we were at approx $127 million.
The new cap for all NFL teams is $120 mill.
I assume that we cut some fat after camp, but i dont know for sure.</P>
youre right about players wanting more money and stuff like that. That's why we probably cant afford Manningham. We gotta pay Cruz too, so....
McKenzie's contract is done, and I have to assume that we look elsewhere for his replacement, and that one alone is about $6mill coming off the books.
They also have to decide what they are doing with Ross, Goff, TT, Hixon, Tollefson, Bernard and Grant.
I assume we keep Goff, and especially TT. I hope we keep Tolly also
I'd even say keep Rocky Bernard since he came at a cheap price after we picked him back up.</P>
[/quote]I def think Super Mario is getting a big pay day from a team
Suge Knight has been on the downslide of his career for the past 2 seasons, he was our anchor in the run game but not he's our weakest link on the OL
I can see Grant retiring and leaving on top even though I would like to see him on our squad for one more year allowing Sash to step into a full role
I REALLY hope we keep Tolly, he was one of the best players off the bench for us and allowed us to keep our DL rotation fresh.* I can see a team offering him more money than we would like to shell out
T2 and Goff should get the 1year Kiwi-Contracts and if they stay healthy they should be offered long term deals.
The toughest FA IMO is AR31. I have been bashing this guy since 08 but we may actually need him this upcoming season, we have our #2 coming off a terrible knee injury and our next best guy was a rookie that played like 4 games, so I wouldnt expect alot from either of them.* Keeping that in mind, AR31 would be nice to have to allow us to bring Prince along without tossing him straight into the fire
I expect nothing from Hixon
Hixon is such a liability with all the injuries. he's missed more games than he's ever played in. Sucks, because he had such a high cieling. I remember how excited we were when he stepped up after the Plaxcident......well....except those perfectly botched catches against the eagles...lol, but...he had a good season considering...</P>
He tore up his knee making maybe the best, and certainly one of the most important catches of the season.* We could have lost that game very easily without that play.</P>
Lets go easy on Hixon.* He could still be a great return man for us.* And we certainly need that.</P>[/quote]Time will tell for Hixon, Im hopeful.
Mannigham is going to be expensive if he does go-I hope it's not to the skins with Peyton as his QB.
Has a $ amt that Cruz is looking for been released?
