    There’s a typo. Remove “million” from Washington’s total.

    awful lot of cap room philly……shoulda just signed houshmanzadeh and kept the picks instead of still lacking the receiver we need

  3. 1stngoal says: Apr 22, 2009 10:59 PM

    Wow…Baltimore is pretty hard against the cap…looks like they will need TARP funds to pay for this years draft class….

  4. Football is life says: Apr 22, 2009 11:00 PM

    The Eagles have 37MILLION??? Holy crap!

  5. bobinpr says: Apr 22, 2009 11:03 PM

    The amount shown for the Bills seems wrong. They were under by over $ 20 million and they lost Peters and Greer in free agency and they cut Dockery and Royal. T.O. was the only signing of note and that was for only $6.5 million. What is your source?

  6. bverwegen says: Apr 22, 2009 11:06 PM

    doesn’t look too good for the ravens
    who are possible cap casualties in baltimore?

  7. VonClausewitz says: Apr 22, 2009 11:11 PM

    How exactly do the Cards have that little cap? Last time I checked they were the cheapest team in the league. Wha happened?

    Don’t worry I will have my Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner look into this issue.

    too lazy to put them in order? LOL

  10. smiley says: Apr 22, 2009 11:13 PM

    ….and the Skins are under the cap…I know many of u were concerned. Hail!

  11. AlaskanViking says: Apr 22, 2009 11:16 PM

    The Vikings always end up having more than these lists show. Brez hides so much $$$ in “un”likely to be earned clauses, etc…

  12. timgod99 says: Apr 22, 2009 11:30 PM

    Even if the Eagles number does not include the Peters deal, and you include that number at the annual average salary ($10 million per reports) that still leaves them with the fourth most cap space heading into Saturday. Only the aforementioned Bucs, Kansas City and Green Bay would have more.
    A very powerful position for the Eagles to be dealing from.

    All those teams have less cap space than the skins. Suck it haters.

  14. WetHog says: Apr 22, 2009 11:45 PM

    Wow there are a handful of teams in worse shape than the Skins. Funny.

  15. Bob_Nelson says: Apr 23, 2009 12:38 AM

    Why can’t the amounts be listed in order?
    Nobody looks at the NFL in alphabetical order!
    Divisional breakdown maybe??
    Everyone wants to know how far teams are from the top or from the bottom.

  16. GiantsFanInBirdsCountry says: Apr 23, 2009 1:07 AM

    Ok G-men. Time to trim the fat after the draft. Yikes!

  17. GreeneBlitz says: Apr 23, 2009 1:50 AM

    Re: bobinpr
    Buffalo’s cap number is approximately correct, they have signed multiple free agents and signings, 17 to be exctact (most were resigning our own players), it all adds up, Greer was a free agent so his salary was not counted in the 1st place and Peters trade only gives a 3 million cap savings.

  18. efftwofiddy says: Apr 23, 2009 2:28 AM

    Would have been better to sort these by $ amount instead of alphabetically

  19. branbosc says: Apr 23, 2009 4:29 AM

    dont get me wrong, i definitely understand the whole sheldon brown situtation from the eagles point of view and all… but with $37mil in cap room, wouldn’t this be a great time to restructure contracts to keep your players happy? at least ones who are being so clearly underpaid– sheldon is a perennial force on this defense, and you know that 37 mil is not going to all rookies, no matter where they trade up to or who they sign… spread the love, you greedy bastards (yes, you, andy, jeffrey, and joe)

  20. ICDogg says: Apr 23, 2009 4:55 AM

    Eagles cap number is pre-Peters-trade, and so it’s probably 10M or more lower than listed. Still, plenty of room, but a couple teams have more space under the cap (whether these teams actually have those funds to spend is another question altogether).

  21. jerseydiver says: Apr 23, 2009 6:33 AM

    If you guys want to post make sure you know what your talking about otherwise you just give people wrong information and they run with it, Peters signed an extension with the Eagles so he added years and money onto his current contract, so this year he is still playing under the salary he agreed to with the Bills at 4.3 million, so not even close to a 10 million or more salary hit from him. Also has anybody factored in the signing of Stacy Andrews, or any of the DBs the Eagles have picked up this offseason, or the fact that the Eagles have 10 draft picks they will have to sign or possibly trade some and pay the players they receive in a trade. That being said its impressive how much cap space the Eagles have and its completely ridiculous the amount of money spent by other teams and how poorly they perform, a lot of Eagles fans complain about Eagles management but really look at the numbers every year they put a very good team on the field and they leave themselves lots of money under the cap to make themselves better. Personally i would say they have one of the top 5 best front office personnel in the league.

They manage to do this every year by not overpaying for players such as TJ Housh who is 32 and on the downside of his career, also by avoiding paying players every time they complain when in reality they dont owe the player anymore money than they themselves agreed to. Personally i would say they have one of the top 5 best front office personnel in the league.

  23. sleventant says: Apr 23, 2009 7:03 AM

    this has to be based on the end of last season. eagles have already handed out a bunch of signing bonuses and Baltimore and the giants have let a lot of people go

  24. DanSnyder says: Apr 23, 2009 7:03 AM

    Its funny that the skins before free agency started were over the cap, they sign albert haynesworth to 100mil contract, deangelo hall to 54mil contract and derrick dockery to a 30mil contract and are now 6 mill below the cap.
    That is the way to do it eagles fans. You can praise the FO all you want when it comes to cap space but your team is good because of drafting, every year you guys have been 1 or 2 players away from a championship yet still have tens of millions in cap room unspent. Skins FO sucks at drafting but at least I know they will do everything they can to upgrade and squeeze as much out of that cap as possible year in and year out.
    With the eagles drafting and dan snyders money and cap guys we could combine into 1 superteam.

    The first three teams you’re telling to “suck it” have won 5 of the last 6 Super Bowls, and if you include Baltimore 7 Super Bowl Championships since January of 2001.
    Meanwhile over that span, your ‘Skins team has:
    (1) hired “Ball Coach” only to see him cry uncle and bail;
    (2) geared up for Marty Ball – another resounding success;
    (3) had Joe Gibbs ridiculously try to ice the kicker by calling back-to-back timeouts to cost his team a game-winning kick; and
    (4) hired Zorn —> whose idea of a fresh innovative approach to coaching passing drills is to have players, assistants, ball boys and random specatators all hoot and howl as they throw pillows at QBs in 7 on 7 drills. Zorn wants to simulate what it’s like to have Shawn Merriman about to snap you in half, so encouraging squealing from 155 pound men who are hucking cushions in the general direction of the QB is how he gets ‘er done.
    Great program you got in D.C.
    Your ‘Skins are a joke, and unlike many of the teams you just mocked – the Redskins have not one single Lombardi in the near 20 year salary cap era to show for it.
    At least you can take comfort that your billionaire owner charges admission to watch practice — that must really create a nice family atmosphere, huh?

    @jz
    Yeah, and on your list only one of those teams missed the playoffs last year. Maybe Dan Snyder can study film on other team owners and learn something. Go ahead and throw any Jerry Jones footage in the trash.

  28. Heinekenfun says: Apr 23, 2009 9:36 AM

    Dear jz:
    What do all thos teams have in common? Recent Playoff appearances AND 2009 Playoff potential.
    What do the Redskins have?
    Nothing. Suck on that, Snyderboy

    Something doesn’t seem right here, one team for instance, the Jets were 12 mil over the cap a few months ago, but with farves 13 mil salary off the books they got under, they sign Scott and a few others and now they are 12 million under? Who figured these numbers out? The AIG accountant team?

  30. timgod99 says: Apr 23, 2009 12:31 PM

    @jerseydiver
    I just used $10 million as a round about number cause we are not sure what kind of upfront money Peters got (signing bonus, roster bonus etc.) since the contract has not been made public. And lets face it, with the way Peters got himself out of Buffalo, there was no way he was signing any deal without a nice upfront payment, especially if he wasn’t getting more of a yearly salary in 2009 or 2010.

    good call wick. and i thought chicago’s bigwigs were douches trying to ban tailgating….not much better, but at the same time, at least the “D” is consistently Descent, along with special teams, and not wasting 100 million dollars on a 7 year deal for stainsworth who will give them 6 years of stomping on the faces of people and bitching about something, then possibly playing good the 7th and final year of his contract….shortly before another team decides to overpay him for a 3-4 year deal he’s not worth.
