    I don't think we have that "little" in space.

    As Ben Volin just tweeted and as others have speculated, it's simply because they haven't voided the 10 million in Jake Long's contract. Nothing to see here, we're exactly where we thought we were.

    Long's contract was not officially voided in his run down. It will be, and we will have around $50M+ when all is said and done.

    Yep, once Long's contract is voided it will be around $45 million in space.

    He does. From a bookkeeping standpoint, he is correct , as Long's contract is still in the books.

    I'd like to know which person from Finheaven.com asked this question:

    And I sure am glad that we already know what Tannehill is. I guess he can't improve from his present status especially for a guy who, college and NFL combined, now has 35 starts...next to Andrew Luck (39 starts in college alone), RGIII (40 college starts) and Russell Wilson (46 college starts) who clearly have more experience. Yep, glad the book has been written and we can move on now.

    Yeah, John Clayton is on the end of his career as a analyst (or whatever you want to call him). Rotoworld has been saying all year to take his "reports" with a grain of salt.

    Funny to see the Jets at -19mil lol, if thats the real number.

    It was $46 million before we signed Dimitri Patterson, who will count $4.5 million against the cap next year.

    I'm excited for more wasted $$$ on free agents and more useless draft acorns!

    Past history gives me no hope with Ireland.

    Dimitri Patterson has absolutely zero leverage with his contract. If he wants a chance to compete for a starting NB spot and he likewise knows that we have an injured Richard Marshall coming back and possibly a rookie to battle with that he already knows, he's getting restructured to an incentive laden contract in order to have that chance to compete. It's only a matter of days til we hear Dolphins restructure Patterson's contract or be released. I bet he restructures and stays to compete. I mean, he's already been cut so...

    Picking on Clayton is silly. For anyone not knowing, he works for this little company called ESPN. They have a ton of guys and gals who check, double check, and likely triple check everything he reports. Anyone really think he sits up nights sorting out team's caps? LOL

    Patterson was included in next season's contracts, as he is under contract by not clearing waivers before we signed him. Long will be when his contract is voided.

    Because of Marshall's guarantee, we will about break even in cutting him this year. If we cut Patterson, we get a full $4.6M credit.

    Bttom line is not having a problem with money to spend. It will be finding someone's wort spending it on. I include our own FA's. It is possibe that we carry over the money until next year, depending on who becomes available.

    From last year, teams have the option to carry over whatever they have. For example, Philly has $23M and Jax $19.5M.

    Starting this year, due to the new CBA, whatever money teams do not spend is still part of the salary cap and will carry over with no option. The reason for this is that the 89% rule kicks in. This means that all teams MUST spend 89% of the cap over a 3 or 4 year (don't recall) period.
