League, union calculations of cap space differ, as usual


At a time when the NFL and the NFLPA can’t agree on much of anything, it’s no surprise that their internal salary-cap calculations differ, too.

The NFLPA’s numbers are routinely leaked.  The NFL’s numbers rarely are.

We’ve gotten our hands on the NFL’s numbers.  You can get your eyes on them right here.For example, the NFLPA calculation has the Bucs at $17 million in remaining cap space, post-Revis.  The NFL numbers put the Bucs at $12.8 million.

  1. NFLPA got taken by the owners at the CBA, d.smith should be checked for taken a bribe, then can him. Last two years I been hearing oh the cap is gonna go up a lot, yet it never does. The only thing players got was limited practices and training camps, lost on every other front.

    The first will be last (yet again). Redskins back to the basement.

    I agree if this is your first post god willing it will be your last!

  3. Eagles: $23.1 million


    3 starting RTs sitting out there for less than 5 mill, and were sitting on our precious 23 million in space.

    We really should sign at least 1 proven body for the OL. Im shocked that we havent. We have 2 starting Ts coming off injury who are both 30+. What are the chances they each play 16 games?

    Eagles redskins. Two of the worst ran teams. Feel bad for eagles fans thinking Kelly was a good hire



    Ravens from 2000-2012 – 126 wins
    Eagles from 2000-2012 – 125 wins

    Look pretty similar to me ratbird. Yeah you got 2 trophies, but explain to me how 125 wins over 12 years is worst run?

    Yep you’ve proven your football IQ is not very high there buddy. So how’s that McClain signing going for you? I guess Flacco can play LB too because he’s going to have to!

  6. Excuse my outbursts about how great the Redskins are. I’m just a jealous kid…

    It’s a worse run because none of those wins include a Lombardi. If you can’t get it done in the post season the regular season wins don’t mean jack.

    Do those figures include post season victories?
    (honest question)

  8. Oh I guess asking someone to explain the minimum salary cap, is subject to censorship on this site. It’s a legitimate question, why not write an article on it, and fill some of the space instead of posting leaks and being a tool to the team that leaked it. Wouldn’t you rather post something of worth than do a teams bidding for them, by posting leaks that attack draftees so their stock will fall? I don’t understand as NFL fans why, this far into the CBA, we have no explanation as to whether each team must spend 89% beginning this year, or beginning this year, but via an avg that is calculated after 3 or 5 years or whatever the case maybe. Do you think we will be too stupid to understand? Has anyone that posts articles on this site read the CBA? I’m assuming the answer to both is yes. I just don’t understand it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Too much yellow journalism on this page. From Websters Dictionary:

    Noun 1. yellow journalism – sensationalist journalism
    Synonyms: tabloid
