    FILTHadelphia Eagles still circumventing the cap I see.

    Too bad the only thing it’s brought them is the basement of the NFC East success ladder. Zero titles, good one Rocky!

  2. naygerkid says: Aug 4, 2011 4:00 PM

    How are the Raiders in the red by 15 mil?? Where is all their cap room money going?? Best player on the team has to be either McFadden, Seymour, or Janikowski.

  3. offsideburns says: Aug 4, 2011 4:02 PM

    Wow this really goes to show how messed up the Raiders are.

  4. jerryangelomakesmewanttojumpoffabridge says: Aug 4, 2011 4:02 PM

    How can the Raiders possibly be that far over the cap and how are they going to shed that much salary in a day?

  5. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 4, 2011 4:04 PM

    All that cap room and none for Randy Moss and T.O.

    See kids this is what being a pain gets you in life.

  6. scutzi128 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:05 PM

    I love how every single post there is someone hating on the Eagles.

  7. ndgarretjax says: Aug 4, 2011 4:05 PM

    @naygerkid …………Janikowski was drafted in the first round so he is highly paid………..Oh wait, that was 11 years ago…Al Davis overpays doesn’t he?

  8. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 4, 2011 4:05 PM

    So wait the Lions made all those moves and they are still in the red.

    This is your sleeper team for 2011?

  9. hobartbaker says: Aug 4, 2011 4:05 PM

    Reminds you of tale of how Abe Lincoln used to dodge taxes by hiding money in his hat when the inspectors came around. So it appeared he spent less than he actually did.

  10. sportswannabe says: Aug 4, 2011 4:06 PM

    Seriously, we couldn’t format this list a little…you know, into an actual list format. I don’t mean to whine about a free service, but it would take 30 seconds to move each team on to a line. Or just do a spreadsheet.

  11. crazyrayisdead says: Aug 4, 2011 4:06 PM

    How are the Lions over by more than my free spending Cowboy’s????

  12. timtheenchanter1 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:06 PM

    Would it have killed you to put it in a list or table?

  13. animals1977 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:06 PM

    Man alive. Those orange winking fairy pirate Buccaneers are some cheap mofo’s. They’re too busy setting the record for who can go 2-14 the most times.

  14. jjarvis says: Aug 4, 2011 4:08 PM

    What happens if they are not? Do they get fined money or draft picks? Does Goodell decide by himself? Does it escalate based on the amount or how long they are in the red?

  15. dclogicatlast says: Aug 4, 2011 4:09 PM

    Raiders have been giving out outrageous deals all offseason. It started before the lockout to the likes of Seymour and Routte, and most recently Santan Claus Davis visited Wimbley.

  16. tehowdruid says: Aug 4, 2011 4:10 PM

    @naygerkid

    That is what happens when you severely overpay mediocre talent. $11M a year for Routt and $8m a year for Huff? I mean wtf

  17. txtuff says: Aug 4, 2011 4:10 PM

    The Texans are redoing 3 contracts including Andre Johnson, DeMeco Ryans, and Antonio Smith. To see AJ and DeMeco helping the team out is probably good news. I’m sure they are not doing it without at least adding a year or 2 o their contracts.

  19. whatchutalkinabouthillis says: Aug 4, 2011 4:11 PM

    @realnflmaster, why are you saying that lie it’s a bad thing? I’m not sure why so many members are posting comments saying things like “Look at them trying to spend money, WHAT BASTARDS”. Would you suggest they spend no money on players at all? I can see you making fun of them if the signings were bad but every one seemed pretty solid. It seems that a lot of other fans are jealous of what the Eagles managed to accomplish this offseason.

  20. nineroutsider says: Aug 4, 2011 4:11 PM

    Some teams are going to have to drop some scraps that my lowly team will hopefully stumble across and scarf down like a starving dog.

    Besides restructuring contracts, there really is no other way to get under the cap…or am I wrong?

  21. bigturkdaddy says: Aug 4, 2011 4:12 PM

    Do the teams with ton of cap space (e.g., Buccaneers) have to spend quickly to get up to the floor?

  22. cowartsh says: Aug 4, 2011 4:13 PM

    God the raiders are pathetic.

  23. andyreidisfat says: Aug 4, 2011 4:13 PM

    So i guess 7 other teams are “buying a superbowl” besides the Eagles huh ???

    This doesn’t mean much as cuts haven’t even been made yet and the cap only counts right now against 51 highest paid players. Some of these numbers are really hire than they should be. Also this number doesn’t count the 3 mil in cap help teams get this year.

  24. denverdrivenfan says: Aug 4, 2011 4:13 PM

    Denver, you need to spend some money!! Get some talent on that team!! That money will not spend its self!! Better team = more wins = happier fans = more revenue for the team!!

    How the Broncos didn’t get Jenkins or Mebane is beyond me. Tons of cash and a huge need. Ugh.

  32. bobnelsonjr says: Aug 4, 2011 4:25 PM

    Jamarcus Russell is still on the books for the Raiders. Next year they will have plenty of space.

  33. tombradyswig says: Aug 4, 2011 4:25 PM

    raiders are just sad man, 15 Mil over cap and still can’t buy a winning season

  34. andrewfbrowne says: Aug 4, 2011 4:25 PM

    The thing that is going to be tough for guys right up against the salary cap is if they need to sign some guys during the season to cover injuries. That is going to be very interesting to watch the Rams, Giants, Falcons, and Vikings.

    Plus I think the teams should be able to spread out bonus money over a period of years to get under cap by tomorrow.

  35. alonestartexan says: Aug 4, 2011 4:26 PM

    Record for going 2-14???
    You are aware that those “cheap mofos” were cheap mofos last year too when they went 10-6, far better than those free spending Cap Champions like the Redskins & Cowboys.
    3 of the last 4 seasons have been winning seasons for those “2-14 cheap mofos”
    4 of the last 6.

    Infact the last time the Bucs were ever 2-14 (or worse) was a quarter century ago, you might want to join us in the present day, a lot has happened in the 25 years you seem to have missed.

  37. bengaldiplomat says: Aug 4, 2011 4:27 PM

    It will be interesting to see how much of the $29 million will be left after the Bengals extend Leon Hall, Andrew Whitworth and Ray Malaluga.

  38. hendeeze says: Aug 4, 2011 4:29 PM

    Raiders do this every season, Sign some guy for a big money deal, restructure a year or 2 later to get under the cap. Sign more mediocre players to big money contracts. Lose Zach Miller. Same Ol Al! Long Live Al Davis! the AFC West thanks you!

  39. dolfan34 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:30 PM

    Anybody know if the Raiders have signed Michael Bush yet and if not what the compensation would be for another team to sign him, as he’s RFA?

  40. meegwell says: Aug 4, 2011 4:31 PM

    Great stuff?

    Folks, this is old news and inaccurate news at the same time. It’s in bad format because it was cut and pasted from a tweet sourced by @AdamSchefter OVER SIX HOURS AGO.

    Cap information is shady at best. Nobody has all the details they need, it is only best guesses. The more secretive a team is, the less the journalists accuracy is on the guess.

    Add to that that in this given scenario, they are extremely fluid.

    Don’t take any of these numbers seriously.

    And again, these numbers were reported by Schefter 6 hours ago.

    Thanks

  41. jacksaysfu says: Aug 4, 2011 4:32 PM

    Its so sad to see clowns like @realnflpenismaster hanging on Phillys nuts. Go hate on your team instead of playing with yourself over ours. You are so jealous, its pathetic!

    ——————–

    I don’t think you understand how restructuring works.

    When a player signs a deal, any signing bonus money is pro-rated across the length of the contract. By resigning a player to the same length and total amount, but paying them a minimal salary and paying them the difference as a signing bonus, they make the same amount, but they get to spread the bonus out over the coming years instead of all in the current year.

    The players don’t see an impact, it’s not an extension, it’s a restructuring. There’s zero reason for the player not to do it, because the bonus money is guaranteed up-front, whereas the salary disappears if they get cut (which they are more likely to have happen as a cap casualty if they don’t restructure).

    The downside is that all these teams having to do this will have dead cap hits for all these bonuses in later years, effectively lowering their spending power in future years. Also, if a player gets cut, any remaining pro-rated bonus money gets lumped into the current year.

  43. atwatercrushesokoye says: Aug 4, 2011 4:32 PM

    JJarvis: I remember hearing a few years ago that if a team goes over the cap the NFL steps in and starts voiding contracts until you get under the cap, they start with the most recent signed and work their way from there. Then when they’re done with that they fine the team and take away draft picks. For the Broncos minor transgressions of the late 90’s they twice lost third round picks, although the second time the miraculously got a third round comp pick that year (wasted on Maurice Clarrett) that they weren’t entitled to.

  44. bradwins says: Aug 4, 2011 4:32 PM

    @tbtrojan: calm down, bud. Seems like a strange thing to get all upset about.

  45. asublimeday says: Aug 4, 2011 4:33 PM

  47. hrmlss says: Aug 4, 2011 4:38 PM

    The new CBA says that to get under the cap, the most recently signed contracts will be voided, until the team is under the cap.

  48. relly142 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:40 PM

    Is it me or do non eagles fans talk about the eagles and post more about the eagles than actual eagles fans? Its quite sad really…I feel bad for all the Cowboys/Giants fans. Come on guys…the cowboys resigned Doug Free, you guys can talk about that…and isnt Terrence Newman making $8million? talk about that. And the Giants fans can certainly talk about Osi or even Jacobs restructuring his deal…you guys still have your own teams…I promise. WOW! so many haters…not our fault the Eagles are STILL $4 million under the cap…and the Cowboys are in the red.

  49. whynotusecommonsense says: Aug 4, 2011 4:41 PM

    Considering that there is no source for this information take it with a grain of salt.

    The Raiders are not very forthcoming with their contract dealings until they have to be. Just like previous years when rumors start flying about teams in cap trouble, they will all be compliant.

    Where did you get this information from?

  50. prior0knowledge says: Aug 4, 2011 4:45 PM

    looking at this list, the really sad ones are Browns & Bengals & Raiders. Browns & Bengals because they have the money and refuse to spend it (Bucs, Chiefs & Jags are excused) and Raiders because they overspent and got nothing got nothing to show for it.

    Great list.

  53. michigansportschat says: Aug 4, 2011 4:50 PM

    This is why the Rookie Pay Scale needed to be in place. Teams that are perennial losers wrapped so much money up in 1st round draft picks that they had no more money to spend on quality free agents. It was an endless cycle. You will the NFL become even more equal across the board now. This shows you how important a having a Cap Specialist o your staff is. Eagles are the case in point.

  54. packman15 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:50 PM

    I believe Clayton reported the Raiders have about $26 mil in “dead money”, so that explains a lot. Keep the humor coming Al, I love it!

  57. nfldaddy says: Aug 4, 2011 4:51 PM

    Notice all of the teams that have the most money are the cheap ass teams that don’t care about winning or their fans, even the weak ass GB Packers.

    That’s right, I said it. The Green Bay Packers.

    You know what happens when you try to catch lightening in a bottle twice? YOU GET SHOCKED!!!!!

  58. mushin9 says: Aug 4, 2011 4:52 PM

    Your cap number for KC is wrong. It was $28 mil under on Tuesday. I’m pretty sure the signing of Hali to 5 yr, 60 mil, 32 mil guaranteed made a slight dent in that number.

    I could be wrong. Pioli is considered to be a genius in most circles. My thought is that he somehow added it to the Raiders cap so they will now be 45 mil come 4 o’clock tomorrow. You go Pioli.

  59. thatdamnsasquatch says: Aug 4, 2011 4:54 PM

    Bring forth the second wave of free agents after teams make cuts to get under the cap.

  60. golonger says: Aug 4, 2011 4:55 PM

    The Raiders should just go ahead and release their entire starting offensive unit……that should bring them in under the cap without any true loss of production!

    ________________________________

    So, in the case of the Raiders, the Wimbley contract would be voided….which would then INCREASE the amount they are over the cap, since that deal overrode the franchise tag that would have cost them 11 million this year.

  63. marty2019 says: Aug 4, 2011 5:01 PM

    This should be in the revenue sharing agreement:

    Allow a team that is over the cap to buy cap room from a team that is under the cap.

    It’s a win-win. Problem solved.

    —————————————————-
    All those things you say are irrelevant. The bottom line is, they are too damn cheap. If they can do as well as they did last year by clinching their cheeks, imagine how well they would if they just got 1 or 2 stud free agent players.

    Your team isn’t doing anything with its current roster. Like it or not, you are clearly the 3rd best team in your division. What are the chances that both Wild Card winners come from the same division? It RARELY happens.

    The bottom line is, they don’t want to spend money. Your team isn’t dedicated to winning, they are dedicated to making money.

    The fans will keep spending, and your team will keep taking it.

  66. mushin9 says: Aug 4, 2011 5:09 PM

    @marty2019

    Not sure how that would work, but it’s not a bad idea. Of course you might end up with the Pittsburgh Pirates there. Teams sandbagging to sell Jones cap space while they are buying a South Pacific Island with the proceeds

  67. jpk6044 says: Aug 4, 2011 5:30 PM

    I believe Mike Vick’s, 1-year, $16 million Franchise Player salary counts fully against the cap. The Eagles will soon re-sign him to a space-creating multi-year deal so expect that $4 million number to increase.

  68. Deb says: Aug 4, 2011 5:32 PM

    Where did all those teams get all that money?? Pffttt!!!

    Will the Steelers be able to make enough adjustments to sign both Woodley and Polamalu before the season starts?

    Winning records are irrelevant and spending cash is the important thing?

    As for the 3rd best team in the division, I guess we can throw that oon the pile of preseason predictions that mean nothing when the games start, I mean what was the talk last year?
    Oh yeah… “The Bucs are cheap and haven’t done a thing to improve from from 3-13, they won’t win 6 games in 3 years.”
    A 10-6 record later and that gets “forgotten” and it’s still spending cash that matters rather than having a plan.

    The Colts and Packers are in the bottom half of the league in terms of cap room used, they better get spending to if they ever want any success, nothing but 4-12 records for them unless they spend every dime they can overpaying FAs and getting in cap hell if they ever want to be like perennial winners Detroit, Dallas, Oakland.

    The Bucs are a young team and most players are on their first contracts so they will be cheap, I guess we should just go all “Madden” during the offseason and spend money for the sake of spending it, bring in overpaid chumps who because of their salary get starting gigs and thus stunt the growth of the young guy while having the added bonus of wrecking the cap situation going forward, hopefully those old guy take up enough room that we can’t dump a franchise QB contract infront of Freeman.

  71. nomadicraiderfred says: Aug 4, 2011 5:52 PM

    The Raiders are ALWAYS over the cap right until the last minute. By tomorrow they will be under the cap. They wouldn’t have Kevin Boss to visit if they didn’t think they could sign him.

  73. mmmpieyummy says: Aug 4, 2011 5:57 PM

    For all you haters out there: If you don’t know why the Raiders are in the red then just shut up already and forget about it.

    It’s been explained why by people on this site a million frickin’ times – if you’re too stupid to get it, then don’t worry about it.

    They are over the cap year after year after year and always come under when necessary…it’s called restructuring, and every damn team in the league has to do it at one point or another.

    Enough already with your hate…because deep down you only wished you were part of Raider Nation.

  74. deedub1639 says: Aug 4, 2011 5:59 PM

    Stop worrying about the Silver and Black. I have a feeling that the cap numbers have not been updated. Yeah, they have had some flops in the first rounds recently, Ja(Mucas), Dropius Wayward-Bey and to a lesser extent Gallery. But their draft history isn’t any worse than the next team. They also drafted LT Valdeer, (Safety)Nnamdi, (CB) Woodson, (TE) Miller, (DL) Shaughnessy, (LB) McClain….. the list goes on. All of you people piling on the Raiders will find out soon enough finding a franchise QB is difficult. Teams that lost franchise QB have gone in the toilet. Raiders (Gannon), 49ers (Montana-Young) Woncos (Elway). Let me remind the Patriot fans that you were a joke until Brady, Colts Joke before Manning, Steelers pedestrian between Bradshaw and Ben, Saints paper sacks before Brees, Falcons crap before Vick and Ryan.

    Brady, Brees and Manning aren’t going to play forever.

  75. deedub1639 says: Aug 4, 2011 6:03 PM

    at this list, the really sad ones are Browns & Bengals & Raiders. Browns & Bengals because they have the money and refuse to spend it (Bucs, Chiefs & Jags are excused) and Raiders because they overspent and got nothing got nothing to show for it.

    Great list.

    Still would rather my owner overspent trying to obtain/retain talent then not spend at all. Just my .02

    The CowBabies will find a way to stay over the cap while continuing to over pay for mediocre talent.

    Good article PFT. Honestly I dont see why people are complaing about how the list is written out. Great website. I just dont like the little cheapshots you guys are always taking at teams or players, but theres always tons of updated information. Thats why I keep coming back.

    I don’t underdstand the browns, every game sells out, everyone has a jersey on, and everyone buys 10 dollar beers but they don’t spend any money. If they don’t spend some of that money on joe thomas it might be the last straw. Lerners nothing but a selfish owner counting his cash

    On the Dolphins… Guess we know how much Vernon Carey cut his salary by eh? take the difference between Tue’s #’s and Thurs #’s. ie. $1,846,000

    So Seattle still has room to sign a few more backup QBs at $4mil per/yr.

    Does this include the money they can borrow from future caps. With new TV contracts coming up that are expected to be close to double the current deals, borrowing from the future cap shouldn’t hurt anyone. Besides the Faiders, the rest aren’t really in that much of a jam.

    “To bad the Eagles didn’t win a Super Bowl like we did……….IN NINETEEN NINETY FIVE!”

    Yeah, you sure showed that guy….by bragging about your team NOT winning a superbowl in their franchise history….total pwnage.

  84. rraider says: Aug 4, 2011 7:11 PM

    Stop all the Al Davis bashing……It isnt your money! Any team under the cap should be ashamed. Here’s why:

    If you spend up to the cap and collect your TV check your going to make about 20 mil annually.

    Anything less is just more gravy into the owners pocket.

    All of these teams spending under the CAP arent giving it to the players, arent cutting ticket prices, arent improving employee benefits…….as a matter of fact they are laying people off, raising ticket prices, firing longtime employees( that’s you chief fan), and crying poor while pulling in 40-80 million a year pure profit.

    So yeah Al is a bad guy for spending to the limit trying to compete………while still living quite comfortably at 20 mil at year.

  85. huejackson says: Aug 4, 2011 7:19 PM

    I wouldn’t worry about the raiders, If you seen them practice you would know that nobody can compete with them, The Rookie Moore looks like jerry rice
    They will probably pick up Kevin Boss as well, I know coach jackson likes cochery but hes still hurt and wants more money than most WR in the NFL

  86. sandman34rt says: Aug 4, 2011 7:33 PM

    Giants have $1.99 left, who can we get?

  87. phoenixraider says: Aug 4, 2011 10:41 PM

    Some of you people are just plain stupid!!! I’m just saying… Al Davis is a master at manipulating he cap he always gets under the cap.. ALWAYS!!

  88. phoenixraider says: Aug 4, 2011 10:45 PM

    This just in so caled NFL GM’S Big Rich agreed to redo his deal saving the Raiders 11 million!! Dmac also has agreed to redo his deal if needed Tommy Kelly as well!!! lmao Know of you better quit your day jobs cuz NFL GM’s you are NOT!!! Never question Al Davis when it comes to the cap… Next up signing Boss and Floyd!

  89. plundergrunge says: Aug 4, 2011 11:27 PM

    The Bengals, Bills, Browns, Jaguars, etc. borrow money from teams like the Cowboys through revenue sharing.

    It won’t happen (because it’s ridiculous) but a ‘cap sharing’ system would be fair.

    Jerry, give your money to the rest of the kids that don’t have money. Good boy. Now, we were thinking…we were thinking you have too much stuff. We’re going to have to penalize you for having too much. But keep giving to the poor kids.

    Marxists.

    Okay, Cowboy fan rant over.

  90. kevpft says: Aug 4, 2011 11:31 PM

    I detest the current edition of the Eagles (I have liked various pre-Vick versions of the team), but I have to say kudos for them for assembling what they have while being safely under the limit. Someone is doing that job very well.

  91. kevpft says: Aug 5, 2011 12:17 AM

    @plundergrunge, I’m a Cowboys fan too, but if you can honestly call the NFL – one of the most profitable, thoroughly-steeped-in-pure-avarice, money-printing enterprises in existence – *Marxist*, then you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    The government and legal system already bend over backwards to allow and preserve the kind of absurd monopoly the NFL has. Revenue sharing is one of the things that allows the NFL to do the other 95% of the things it does which make billionaires out of everyone in charge of NFL teams, and multi-millionaires out of just about everyone who plays the game.

    And this is what contemporary Americans call “Marxist”. No wonder the rest of the world thinks we’re dumb.

  92. deedub1639 says: Aug 5, 2011 12:37 PM

    This just in… The Raiders… who were 17 million over the cap yesterday signed Kevin Boss. Hmmm… maybe the old guy isn’t dumb. Is it possible that he waited to restructure deals on the last day so the players that restructured could continue to practice. NAH!!!!! He’s not smart enough to do that (sarcasm)! Al makes some awful moves sometimes but he always.. always… always is trying to bring talent to the field. He is never 46 million under the cap.

  93. Mr. Wright 212 says: Aug 5, 2011 1:42 PM

    Reese and his assistants completely screwed up the cap situation two years ago, and hacks like Canty and Eli won’t restructure. The Giants can give Osi a huge bonus (two-tiered) and backload his contract to still remain under the cap, but you best believe 3-4 years into THAT deal, he will just be cut, no more whining.

  94. Mr. Wright 212 says: Aug 5, 2011 2:04 PM

    And are we gonna tag Steve-12 now that the only other guy left is Osi?
