I'm thinkin this year's cap number would be well below the $1.65 mil it is now, possibly enough to sign Darnay Scott (but I doubt thats who we're goin for).

It shouldn't be that big of a contract I'm still not sure what the Phins coaching staff sees in this guy other than a locker room leader and team player who nobody can say anything bad about.

I have no problem in having a competant leader type in the locker room, but not for much more then the vet min if the guy isn't a big on field PRODUCER.

Jay Williams' Contract Extended

It appears as though J. Williams has been extended for a couple fo years which probably means that the 'Fins now have even more cap room than before. According to the Herald article, their payroll went up by 500K but, as we all know, payroll in the NFL has absolutely nothing to do with the salary cap.

With all the speculation about what will be done with the extra cash, I'll go ahead and throw in my prediction as well. I believe there's a good possibility that Ricky Williams could get signed to an extension before training camp is over so there's one less thing to worry about come next offseason. I guess we'll just have to wait and see though.
